    windows update 0kb total 0% complete

    Hi, i am trying to get my laptop to install vista sp1, however it doesn't seem to appear in windows update. So i was advised to install all other updates that currently appear in windows update. A total of 65 important updates were available, so i clicked download. However, it says: downloading 65 updates 0kb total, 0% complete. It stays like that forever. Please can someone help. Thanks

    Two things, this is often caused by a Firewall. Please TEMPORARILY disable your firewall and see if this fixes the problem. Also, make sure you are running an Administrator account. Else follow these instructions by Flavius (our Windows Update expert)
