I have recently (two days ago) purchased a brand new HP Pavillion g7-1365dx Laptop, with Windows7 Home Premium installed. I had never touched the settings for update..was set to automatic to begin with. Now for the good stuff. After uninstalling alot of "junk" they included with computer, I tried to update. It searched, found updates...but when I clicked to install them it hangs at 0%(left it for two hours) and then gives me error codes...the likes of which I have had are:
8E5E0408 (this is latest one when I tried to install just one of the updates)

It came with Norton Anti-Virus which I have uninstalled and installed free kaspersky anti-virus2012
This is extremely frustrating as it is a new machine and I should have no problems at all. I have tried the Microsoft fix it solution 50202 and the other update one...they both scan, but never shot them fixing anything...probably for good reason..Nothing gets fixed!! Any timely help would greatly be appreciated, as I will probably mess it all up if not helped
