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

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.
