KB982670 failed update


Apologies if this has been addressed before but I can't install an 'important'update for Vista, KB98260 using Windows Update. Can someone point me to the direct source of the download on the MS website please so that I can try it from there?

Many thanks




Put the KB number in the search at above link > manually download it.

If that does not resolve it:

Windows Update Forum:


This is the Vista Install, Upgrade and Activate Forum.

You will get the best help for any Update/Service Pack problem in the Windows Update Forum; link below:


When you repost there, kindly include any Error Codes, and exactly what happens when you attempt to Update.

That way you will receive the best help there.
