Lets try everything. First, reset Windows Update.

Go to this link and run the Fix it for Windows Vista and retry.

Second option:

At an administrator command prompt, copy and paste the following command and press Enter:

CHKDSK /R

It will ask you if you want to schedule a check on the next boot, answer Yes. Type Exit and press Enter, close all windows and restart the computer. The utility will work at startup. Give SP1 another try once completed.

Any undesired results on CHKDSK?

Remove these programs from your computer:

"IObit Malware Fighter_is1" = IObit Malware Fighter
"IObit Surfing Protection_is1" = Surfing Protection
"IObitUninstall" = IObit Uninstaller
"Advanced SystemCare 7"


Did you ever used the Registry Cleaner?

Download the enclosed file. Attached File  ResetWU.zip   724bytes   38 downloads

Save and extract its contents to the desktop. It is a batch file to reset the Updates Components. Once saved, open the folder and rightclick on the ResetWU.bat file and select "Run as an Administrator.". The computer will restart.

Upon restart, attempt the Windows Updates.

Good morning. Regarding CHKDSK it ran for hours, no apparent action. Simply restarted Windows when it was completed, no messages, texts etc.
I have not used the Regist. Cleaner recently.

The maximum allowed number of round trips to the server was exceeded.

Try the standalone update.

An observation:

When CHKDSK runs for hours, it means the hard drive is having issues. A regular scan should last 45 minutes to an hour if there are no issues with the hard drive. Anything beyond that means issues were found and an attempt to recover the data and fix the cluster or sector was done. That could be the reason for the prior error, as it only happens when components are corrupted. That is an HP computer. See if there is a hardware diagnostic tool in the computer. Type diagnostic on the search box. It should appear on top of the Start Menu.
