I know Windows Vista is stopping from next year, but over the last 3 months Windows Updates keep starting & stoppping. About 3 months ago they stopped updating automatically & whe I searched for hidden updates, there was no updates available & then about a month later the updates automatic updates just started again for no reason. The updates run normally for about a month & now they`ve stopped again & they`re affecting Windows Defender, because Windows Defender can`t update definitions & I think it`s because I can`t update Windows. Please could someone one advise me what do to about this?

Hi steven64:

Please see post # 307 of ScousaJAY's thread windows update just seems to hang while checking. Many Vista SP2 and Win 7 SP1 users are currently having issues with slow Windows Updates, and the workaround posted on Dalai's webpage Search for Windows Updates takes forever? - A possible solution (http://wu.krelay.de/en/) that is mentioned in that post seems to help most affected users.

Seems the actual service itself has kinda been fixed apparently, according to a user on the other Vista forums (which are pretty much dead).
