    vista updates (not working update )

    I have updated my own personal list with the updates that may be needed to be installed manually first in a new install of windows vista 64/86 bit

    i should point out that before you install anything in that you have the automatic update in the control; panel turned off first. Also that windows defender is turned off

    The updates that you will need are as follows

    (IE9-WindowsVista-x64-enu) first update

















    It doesn't matter what order they go in but do not skip any as if you do you will more then likely fail in getting the other approximately 214 updates

    once you have installed the above updates you will need to reboot your computer. once back to the desktop you will then need to go into the control panel and turn on both automatic updates and windows defender and reboot

    once back to the desktop again you then just need to click on check for updates and that is it

    if this has helped you in any way then do post back to say so. also feel free to use this post wherever you so wish to do so

    thank you

    PS it will take around 30/60 minutes for the other updates to show up so good luck

    The Microsoft catalog to get hold of these updates can be found here
    Microsoft Update Catalog

    also take care in downloading the right 64/86 bit update for your computer

    Do not concern yourself with these updates as they will automatically install by themselves every time

    Update for Windows (KB970158)

    Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.256

    Re: vista updates (not working update )

    Having spent the last month troubleshooting the vista updates i have found something most odd in that just adding update kb3204724 and kb3204723 the time now taken to get the other 200 or so iv'e got the waiting time now down to 10 minutes
    oh well like many others we've given this our best shot so hope this works out for everyone who needs it
