Q: Vista - Can't install updates

Been having problems with windows update Am using a Compaq Presario CQ50 (Laptop) running Windows Vista Home Premium got SP2 and its the 32bit operating system.

Basically a bubble comes up by my clock saying that windows can't check for updates click here to fix. So i click on it and it takes me to System and Maintaince -Windows update.

the only option i have is to check for updates so i click that and it starts checking for updates and thats it it doesn't do anything the load bar just keeps on going. 

The last updates were installed on the 27th Feb 2010

Hope someone can help

Thanks in advance
