See if this applies to the issue, Chuck -

You receive error code 8000FFFF when you click "Check for Updates" in
the Windows Update Control Panel item on a Windows Vista-based computer
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946414

If not, try downloading the updates manually and *save* them:
[Using Internet Explorer]

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/...spx?q=KB955020
http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/...spx?q=KB950124

Choose the *specific* update intended for the version of Vista
installed. [The 32 bit version will be listed as Update for Windows
Vista. The Overview page will show for Architecture: x86]

When the downloads have completed, close all open browers and programs.
*Right* click each download and choose 'Run as administrator'
Follow the prompts
ONLY do one at a time with a reboot in between followed by another reboot.

Did that get them installed ?

Can you verify that the Network Service account has read access to the root
of the system drive (C:\)?
I have had several of these cases lately and just now found that this was
the problem.
