I have followed the following suggestions, and nothing has worked. I have done the following with the last thing I have tried being point 4.
Is there a combination of any of the below which must be followed because Windows download has not worked since December?
I am thinking about deleting Explorer and reinstalling it? What do you think?
Surely Microsoft would want us to quickly fix this error, as it does not show them in a good light. I mean you download an update and Vista comes down with another error.
We are told because Vista (and it seems any microsoft product) is not checked properly before release and then we the users have to put up with all the wasted time in trying to correct errors.
Individually I have:
1. I have checked that I am the Administrator.
2. I have tried turning off all my firewall and all Virus Protection elements and then tried Windows update to no avail.
4. See suggestion at http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vistawu/thread/a9a2c92d-793b-4050-bdb1-720bb97bd78d
3. I have even tried (then when it did not work I put it all back the way it was):
I IMed HP Tech Support. . . Here is the solution, it's relatively
simple and more importantly, it works!
