hey guys, something has been eating up my computer's resources over the past few days. My CPU will idle around 20%, and my memory will idle around 30%. I have dell XPS 1530 with 3.5GB of ram, and a dualcore 2.4GHZ cpu.
I was checking windows update, and it says it cannot download any updates, and it's most recent check was on 9/9/2008. I tried manually downloaded the windows vista service pack 1, but it keeps failing and giving me error 80070026.
Some people suggested I turn off things like real time protection, so I uninstalled my McAfee virus scan, and downloaded windows defender instead. I then disabled real time protection on the window's defender. Nothing else should have real time protection,
so why can't I update?
