Vista's Update will not download Updates
I am running Windows Vista Home and at this point in time I am not so sure I
like it that much as it is causing me so many headaches. I have a total of
five downloads waiting to be downloaded. Each time I try the downloads start
and then the download fails with an error code of 80072F78. I have searched
and tried just about everything and nothing seems to work.

I also have Windows Defender installed and it refuses to download the
updates it has. What is the solution to this delemma.

What are your anti-virus and anti-spyware arrangements?

Re: Vista's Update will not download Updates
Gerry - thanks for the reply. At present I have Windows Vista Security
features and a recently expired version of Symantec Internet security and of
course Windows Defender. None of these have changed though since the
computer was purchased and it was able to update now.

I am having problems in downloading most third party software upgrades - for
instance HP Upgrades start to download and fail to complete. I can not even
download the guided help in the Article ID : 836941 that PA Bear mentions.
Somewhere I have something very strong blocking certain downloads I guess

Re: Vista's Update will not download Updates
My experience with Vista is limited so I cannot really help. You need to
ask yourself whether the problem is downloading or installing? Many
downloads can be saved to disk and then installed later offline with
your anti-virus and anti-spyware programmes turned off. You also need to
have permissions even more so in Vista than Windows XP. UAC can be very
frustrating and for the brief period I had Vista installed I turned it
off on occasions.

Answer the post by P.A. Bear who has a better understanding of update
issues than I and see what he suggests.

Re: Vista's Update will not download Updates
Hello PA Bear

I have read the article you suggested and I wanted to use the guided help as
I am not much at reading Microsoft articles, but I can't get that to download
or install. Also some of the results that the KB says will happen doesn't.
So I am at a loss.

Re: Vista's Update will not download Updates
Then I'd recommend that you...

Start a free Windows Update support incident request:
https://support.microsoft.com/oas/de...spx?gprid=6527

Support for Windows Update:
http://support.microsoft.com/gp/wusupport

Customers in the U.S. and Canada can receive technical support from
Microsoft Product Support Services at 1-866-PCSAFETY. There is no-charge for
support calls that are associated with security updates. When you call,
clearly state that your problem is related to a Security Update and cite the
update's KB number (e.g., KB931678).

In other countries, see
http://support.microsoft.com/default...r=securityhome > "No-Charge
Support...for virus and other security-related" issues in right-hand menu
for localized contact information.

For more information about how to contact Microsoft for support issues,
visit the International Support Web site:
https://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx
