I am running Vista Home Premium on a HP dv9500 laptop I purchased in August, 2007. Since December 6, 2007 Vista does not connect to Windows Update. I have even started Windows update and let it run overnight and it still will not connect. Also, I'm not sure if this is related, but the QuickPlay program will not update either. It just hangs and locks up. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do?
