I had to reinstall a computer  with vista on it and it all went well installed vista then the updates and then sp1 all did pretty quick no problems and sp2 and bang every time I install the new updater and it isn't even connecting to the internet just says checking for updates and can't even tell that the internet isn't plugged in like it would do normally. I have reinstalled it over 10 times to 100% make sure it's not me or anything I'm doing and used various vista disks I have all original. I have checked many forums and tried everything and nothing has worked I also see a lot of people using windows seven and vista all have the same problem mostly with new installs. Does any one have a solution please

Thank you in advance for any help provided.

Hello Yes it's correctly installed to sp2 which is when the updates stopped and it says updating but no longer connect's to the net or even know's if the net is alive or dead. The Internet is working correctly and everything else updates av antimalware firewall and other software all ok just old troublesome vista.

Install manually the updates listed here http://wu.krelay.de/en/that apply to Windows Vista.

 

Make sure you configure first the Windows Update to Never check for Updates until you install the updates listed on that page.

 

When installing the updates if you see the message searching for updates for a long time cancel the install and stop the Windows Update service before trying to install the update again.

Hi,

 

About the error for KB3168965 its strange can you recheck that you did try to install the correct version.

 

By the way the Vista you have is 32 or 64 bits?

Ok.

 

Download MiniToolBox and save the file to the Desktop.
Close the browser and run the tool, check the following options:

  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Devices (Only Problems)
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size
  • List Restore Points

Click on Go.

Post the resulting log in your next reply.

Good.

 

Try to manually search for updates. Disable any Security software during the search and avoid using the PC.

So by manually you mean open windows update and hit the check for updates button or look for each update one by one and update them with standalone? if the latter do you have a current list?

Another thing from the log:

 

Error: (08/12/2016 08:53:56 AM) (Source: Microsoft-Windows-WindowsUpdateClient) (User: NT AUTHORITY)
Description: 0x80070020Security Update for Windows (KB3145739){DD72433D-ADBE-4139-8C43-1DA201137D26}501

 

Its possible that Comodo Firewall is blocking the updates!

 

By manually I mean open the Windows Update applet inside Control Panel and click Search for Updates if it works it should present a list of needed updates, you should allow the installation of the Security Updates.

I tried without the firewall and it still isn't even connecting to the net I used netstat commands to see connections while updating 0 to any affiliated with micorsoft. I tried strait away and after 10 min's to see if it had even made a connection and nothing at all. I feel the updater is not working for some reason before sp2 it would get updates in a flash click update and boom in less than 5 mins it had tonnes. I also looked in comodos blocked logs and nothing
