I have on a few occasions had a Vista update tell me it failed to install. scid=kb;en-us;943144It's for XP and it might or might not work for Vista (but if it doesn't there might be a similar but slightly different fix for Vista)Barry Watzman#800S ARE FREE!!!!!!!!The best way to fix this is to go into programs and features in control panel, click on view installed updates and look for the update that failed to load. Uninstall this update, restart your computer and then apply the update again. Hope this halps First thing I would say is Vista operating system is like poking a sharp object in your eye over and over again. I recently switched back to XP and I was having the same issues it refused to up date and Microsoft tech could not resolve the issue. I ended up uninstalling Explorer 7 and up dating to Explorer 8 and it allowed the automatic updates to finally work. Try this: create a DOS batch file (a text file) named with the following commands:net stop wuauservregsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dllnet start wuauserv And run it. "SIGH ROLLING MY EYES" & No there not going to charge you, the trick is to get past the 1st call the rep who puts you through tech dept you have to agree to pay by cc then they put your call through & then tell the tech its microsofts problem & not yours that you should not have to pay & its free, it works for me every time First try right clicking windows update and run as the administrater,if that doesn't work open windows explorer,the one with no addons go to tools and click update.You did not say if you were able to get any updates at all so if none of the above works try going to windows/validation and run the tool,the only other reason an update won't work is some need to be installed befor others.

The MS support person in India had me report several things to him then reinstall Vista, which solved the problem.
I\u0027ve tried all the troubleshooting that Windows had to offer, and now I\u0027m stranded. Given their abilities to better troubleshoot such issues using their own diagnostic tools and non-public reference databases, I recommend you to begin a new support incident. My other symtoms were Vista would not recognize my virus protection program nor let me run MS Defender. I wondered you been caught by Vista update problem for a week, which never occur for me.
Hi, I had a case just like this recently, Windows Vista was not able to download and or install updates.
First - check the error code windows update will generate when it fails - most likely it some device driver which conflicts with the update.
It\u0027s been months now since Windows Update on my Vista hasn\u0027t been functioning.

Reinstalling windows is a pain and not only will you have to sit through the operating system reinstalling, but you'll also have to redownload drivers and reinstall programs.
