Windows Updates won't install
Posted on 2010-08-22
I have the following 2 updates that will not install on a Windows Vista Home Basic (32bit, SP2 Installed)
- I have tried to install them both through WIndows Update and as a stand alone update package (downloaded from Microsoft)
- I have also tried to install them in safe mode.
- I uninstalled the antivirus, antimalware, etc and re-tried the install
- I have ran the update readiness tool and then re-tried the updates
all of which failed, i even tried renaming the Download folder in c:%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\
to make sure it wasn't a corrupt download, but to no avail
I spoke to Microsoft and they got me to try and disable all services (other than MS ones) and startup items and then try to install the updates manually but this didn't work either.
If anyone knows a way to get these installed i would be very greatful.
