Basically, I've had a problem with updating for a couple of months now, and I have not had any sucess with updating. It used to work fine, but then I re-installed the OS (with disks provided by dell) and it hasn't worked since.
Basically, when I go to the update, it asks me to check for an update after that it asks me to update windows vista update. when I go to download the windows vista update it errors me.
I have had a read through the update logs, and the error code I am getting is :
A quick google lead me to belive that this was a problem with cryptographic service provider: Error code when you try to use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates: "0x800B0001"
anyway, I tried both of the fixes listed on the page and to no avail.
When I tried the software fix, it proceeds to the update, but just pauses about 75% in.
when I tried the registering .dll option, the .dll registered but the computer still does not update.
Does anyone have any Idea how I can fix this issue?
