Windows Update will not update anymore

I have a SBS2003 server that will not update from WindowsUpdate.

It downloads the files and when it comes to install it will fail.

I have tried to delete the catalog and the last time this happened I had to format machine and start again.

Can anyone help?

Look for the file windowsupdate.log in the %systemroot% folder this file will tell you why it is not updating.

Also if updates are failing on install you should have some events in the logs as SystmProg mentioned.  Please post those events also.
