    Vista Important Update will not update. Error details: Code 800B0100


    Here's another tricky one.
    This important security update will not update. It is only 606Kb.
    Microsoft says it is caused by a virus problem. I have Norton 360 installed. Norton say it is not a virus.
    Microsoft say pay us $120 to fix it. I say I can't afford to pay that for something when I have no way of knowing exactly what the problem really is.
    This has been going on since November 2014. All the other updates are installed immediately but not this one.

    That error is not caused by a virus, it is caused by a file corruption
    The readiness tool can correct the problem in many situations
