In Windows Updates under Change Settings make sure that Install Updates
Automatically is checked.

Also Windows Update has the Updates for WD.

Re: Vista updates,downloaded, but wont install

i have tried that website, but not only is it down but nothing there has
been helpful...
i have done several things now, reregistered dll's (which microsoft
advised me,through notepad) and i have also deleted restore point (which
they also advised me too do)
Ive tried downloading the updates for windows defender, same error
message.
any ideas please?

It is NOT down... and you have to start a thread about your problem to
get help.

Wake the bleep up.

Re: Vista updates,downloaded, but wont install

I get all my updates O.K. including Windows Defender.
My problem is that some times SOME updates don't install and I have to
do it manually.

Update is set to check daily at 6:00 P.
