I did that before but know it says that the updates are not for you system
From the instructions on page 1 of m#l's thread Updates not working, it has been searching for updates for hours :
Note 4: If you try to install a speed up patch that is already installed on your computer, download an installer that does not match the bit architecture of your OS (e.g., you try to run a 64-bit .msu installer on a 32-bit Vista machine), or try to install a speed up patch that has been superseded (replaced) by a newer update you will see a "not applicable" error - see the MS support article "The update is not applicable to your computer" error when you install Windows updates.
Are you certain that you downloaded the 64-bit standalone .msu installers for all five speed up patches and that all five displayed "not applicable" errors? Three of these speed up patches were released in April 2017, including KB4014661 (Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9: April 11, 2017) so if all five failed with a "not applicable" error that suggests that you are fully patched as of April 2017. Furthermore, if KB4014661 is already installed I don't understand why your screenshot in post # 6 shows you still have the original build of IE9 (Update Version 9.0.1 / KB982861) from May 2011, and not Update Version 9.0.60 / KB4014661 from April 2017. Try installing the 64-bit .msu installer for KB4014661 again (https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4014661 vista x64) and see if it displays the same "not applicable" error.
You also said in your original post that you tried to reset Windows Update. How exactly did you do that? Did you run an automated tool or did you try to manually fix the problem (e.g., stop the Windows Update service and rename the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder)?
