I have a number of computers that failed to installed updates from my WSUS server. The updates were found and downloaded, but I dont know how to get them to install. Also, I have used the WSUS Client Diagnostic Tool and all checks passed. The yellow update icon that appears in the system tray stays at 0%. I have also tried to use the wuinstall utility... no success there.

Any specific updates?  I have seen a lot of dotnet framework update errors.  Are they erroring out or just not installing?

They are just not installing. I read something about resetting the BITS from Microsoft, which I believe was the solution. I am trying it out now... will let you know.

The system tray icon does not seem to play well with WSUS.
