I get an error trying to install an update: "WindowsUpdate_80070103" "WindowsUpdate_dt000" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I get an error trying to install an update: "WindowsUpdate_80070103" "WindowsUpdate_dt000".  The title of it leads me to believe it is important to security.  Information I've seen related to this starts at the 'graduate program' level of computer ability whereas I am in Kindergarten, having taken a solemn oath to never program again back in 1977.  Will someone please give me a keystroke-by-keystroke instruction on how to get this update to work?  Thanks!
