Can't get GFWL to work...help?

I'm trying to play Fallout 3 and want to get all the achievements but am having problems.

So I load up Fallout 3 to the main screen and click on LIVE.
I click on Use Existing Live Profile I enter my details and click "sign-in"
It says its downloading my profile

Then I get a message saying that an update is available for Live, which if I don't download it will sign me out.

I click Yes and the Update in Progress bar fills.
When it is full GFWL and Fallout 3 close down and I get a Windows "preparing to install message" which stays for a few seconds then disappears.

I wait......

Nothing.

If I try again, I get the same thing....

I have disabled AV but nothing. Any thoughts appreciated.

I would also like to hear what people have to say on this. Is it a downloaded version or disc?

Yeah, I was thinking of downloading it this week, as well, but have no idea how to get achievements going and don't want to buy it if I can't.

Anyone have a solution/input?

Just tried it again and it worked!! Downloaded the update, it installed and GFWL worked OK. Ran the game and got all the cheevos no problem. Haven't a clue why it didn't before.
