    Windows Update

    My automatic updates stop downloading since December last year.
    I wish to know if there's a limit for support on that in my licence for DELL
    Inspiron 1501 but I didn't find anything on that matter.
    There are 3 drivers that I cannot upgrade too and aren't working and they
    are on Network on Device Manager of mt Vista Basic and they are:

    Microsoft 6to4 Adapter #10
    Microsoft 6to4 Adapter #5
    Microsoft 6to4 Adapter #7

    that leads to :

    c:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\tunnel.sys

    No update is available and they say it's the best driver, ever...but doesn't
    work fine!

    Is there a reason for it related with the denied of Windows Update ?

    The error I get, when trying to update is:

    ERROR 80244026C ... teht leads to... ERROR0x80072efd


    Any help? Anyone helps me?
    Thanks alot

    Re: Windows Update

    Thanks Carey for your interest in helping me but I've tried that and I
    didn't get the solution...
    `Operation needs elevation`....what's that message I've received at command
    prompt, following the instructions from microsoft? If I ping the update
    sites I don't get there...too.
    Did my licence expire for that support? I am waiting for an answer from
    microsoft by email...
    I want to install Service Pack 1.

    Before typing in the commands, right-click
    on the Command Prompt icon and select:
    "Run as administrator".
