Windows Vista Updates

I have an HP laptop with Vista Home Premium, I am getting a Code 643 error on several windows updates that have failed. I have run a complete scan with malwarebytes and removed all infected files, I am still having the same problems. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

Other info: Google Chrome is currently installed and is set as the default browser. I am also unable to install iTunes on the unit.

Try this - Control Panel - Windows Updates - on each Update that will not install - Click the Important Updates
or the Update itself - double click one then click View More Information (or click on it then View on right side)

Those will take you to a page where  you can download the update. Or go here and put in the KBxxxxxx number
