I find that a machine i've been given has apparently no Windows Update service at all. There was recent malware, now removed, and an sfc /scannow produced quite a bit of activity, some apparently unsuccessful. Ive attached today's part of the log file below.
The Vista laptop is Service Pack 1. I suppose it's too much to hope that installing Service Pack 2 manually is going to right these problems? If so, what's the best way to restore Windows Update functionality?
