    Oh and thanks for that link, I did actually need a good link to reinstall as I don't have a disc - very helpful!

    Re: Another update stuck thread (sorry!) all tips not working on this on this laptop.


    Okay I see now. When I read you saying:
    I didn't manually install KB3198234 yet - it started on it's own before I could do that....
    I thought that meant you had clicked and let it install online and it started... okay then no problem, and for gp me just going to that MS Catalog link and clicking the non-download link, and then clicking through the boxes and tabs for more information, I see it now shows that the KB I gave was updated and replaced since then, I've not verified further, and I did not keep up with the 'reality of it' since the last I checked back in late Nov.

    Anyway it should of not given you that error if you downloaded the right one of the 6 OS choices given which for you you said yours is x64. Perhaps your WU automatically gave you the replacement it shows now, although it's been said it's only a temporary win32k.sys fix, just like the one I gave you. As usual, you have to constantly closely pay attention to the latest known word on the street with this whole process! It's endless and always constantly evolving...

    Okay good then, it sounds like you are getting on okay, and thats great, and good luck with your project

    Hi NYCNY:

    Just confirm first that you have Vista SP2 installed. click the Start button, choose Run..., and enter the command "winver" (without the quotes) . If you have the latest service pack the pop-up should show that Service Pack 2 is installed.

    Another update stuck thread (sorry!) all tips not working on this on this laptop....-vista-sp2-winver-png

    Most Vista SP2 users are currently having difficulties running Windows Update, and affected users experience "Checking for updates..." hangs and slow Windows Updates that can run for several hours (or even days) without throwing an error message. ScousaJAY's thread windows update just seems to hang while checking is the most active thread in this board and many Vista SP2 users post regular feedback there.

    Please see the step-by-step instructions on page 1 of m#l's thread Updates not working, it has been searching for updates for hours in the MS Answers forum for a possible workaround if SP2 is installed. STEP # 2 of that post is updated after every Patch Tuesday (the second Tuesday of each month) with the latest list of Windows kernel-mode driver (Win32K.sys) and graphics component updates that must be pre-installed to speed up Windows Update.

    Thanks - yup, says sp 2 build 6002

    Yes I actually spent a while on those and I believe 2 other very long threads previously, they were both helpful and confusing as there were so many links, versions, updates, replacements and tips. But hopefully if I get myself set now I can use those for reference going forward, at least until April and then whatever happens beyond...

    Update: All of the final 136 updates installed sucessfully! Restarted, and 2 more came up - one important (KB2522422) which installed fine, but the second one without a number "Windows Internet Explorer 9 for Windows Vista for x64 based systems" failed with error 9C48. Restarted and tried again, and failed.

    Googling 9C48 mentions some corrupt files/updates for IE9...but not exactly sure what to try now.

    The version of IE on now is 9.0.8112.16421...so it seems there's an issue where it's already on, but the update thinks it's not? I see the entry where it successfully installed yesterday.

    Hi NYCYC:

    All Vista SP2 users with IE9 have the same build 9.0.8112.16421 - you need to check the Update Version to see if IE9 is fully patched with the latest cumulative update. Open IE9 and go to Help | About Internet Explorer - if your IE9 browser is fully patched you should have the latest Update Version 9.0.57 (KB3203621). If you have an older version, post back and I'll provide a link for the standalone .msu installer.

    Ahh, thanks - it's KB982861. I located the vista 64 bit installer for kb3203621 but it just gave me the "does not apply to your system" .....

    Hi NYCNY:

    I'm not clear from the image you posted, but is the only update that is failing with an error 9C48 an Optional update? When you click the Review optional updates link, what KB number or hardware driver is Windows Update trying to install? Does Help | About Internet Explore show that IE9 is patched to Update Version 9.0.57 (KB3203621) since you re-booted? If IE9 still won't update please post a screenshot of the pop-up window you see when you go to Help | About Internet Explorer, and let me know the URL for the download link you used when you downloaded the 64-bit standalone .msu installer for KB3203621 that threw the "not applicable" warning.

    If your Vista SP2 OS is now fully patched with all Important and Recommended updates as of the January 2017 Patch Tuesday updates then security update KB3216775 (MS17-004: Description of the security update for Local Security Authority Subsystem Service: January 10, 2017) should be installed on your system. Search your installed updates at Control Panel | Programs and Features | View Installed Updates and see if KB3216775 is installed. When searching, enter the full KB number in the search box (e.g., "KB3216775" and not a partial string like "3216775").

    Yes, everything else is updated and nothing else shows - it searched fully and only this one optional update is there.

    Reviewing that update, it has a description but no number, just says size 35.5mb and published 5/31/2011

    IE9 patch is still KB982861 after reboot

    Yes I found KB3216775 successfully installed in the list from 2/9

    Here's the link I used - Microsoft Update Catalog

    Pic attached

    Thanks for your help with all of this !!

    Also not sure if it matters, but the update starts installing and goes for about 20 seconds, then changes to failed 9C48
