Updates fail to download/install
Had to reinstall Vista a week ago. Now Windows Update doesn't seem to work
properly. When running Windows Update I get a window saying "X updates are
downloaded" but the speed is 0. After a while I get an error message in the
Update History saying the updates failed. I haven't been able to see any
error codes. There are plenty of updates that fail, but interestingly about
30% seems to go well.

Any ideas?

Re: Updates fail to download/install
What problems were you having that you though reinstalling Vista might
resolve?

Did you do a Repair Install or did you format the HDD & do a clean install?

What anti-virus application or security suite was installed prior to
reinstalling Vista and was your subscription still current?

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed now and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it and which would have been reinstalled, but invalid, when you reinstalled
Windows)?
