Windows vista ultimate not updating
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.
Example: Today I had 3 updates,tryed to install 2 failed so I clicked the see failed and tryed only one at a time they all went.
I hope this helps GL;-}Hi Jason, it isn't obvious from your question whether you are explicitly running Windows Update or using Windows Update's Automatic Update feature.
Are you running the Windows Update from the Start Menu or are you responding to the "Yellow Shield" in the task bar?
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!!!!!!!!
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.
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.
Depending on the devices and program you have, that can take a whole day of work.
It is set to notify me when updates are available but lets me decide when to download and install them.
When the yellow shield pops up, I pick a convenient time and tell it to go do it using the custom option This lets me choose what to install (IE 8 and WGA aren't popular with my clients and a few are still deferring service packs).
