I'm running Vista Ultimate with an AMD Athalon dual core with 4GB memory. There have been a number of automatic updates that have successfully installed but lately there have been problems with recent updates.
Everything works well, (updates install successfully) until the system times down for a restart. The system reboots, requests password then informs:
"Configuring Updates: Stage 1 of 3" - after reaching "Stage 3 0f 3" I get the message: "Updates were not configured correctly - reverting updates". I can then proceed normally.
However, every time I start my computer the system repeats this update configure procedure, always failing and then reverting, making my startup time very long.
Looking at the update history there is a long list of failed updates and a typical entry extract is:
Update for Windows Vista (KB959772)
Installation date: 14/03/2009 17:10
Installation status: Failed
Error details: Code 80071AA7
All the failures have the same error code, as above.
Does anyone know what causes these failures please.
