    I have been using Windows Vista in my PC. Since its performance became slower I tried to update the latest version of Vista. But it does not work. How can I get the updates?

    """DEAR""

    To resolve this problem, try the following methods. After you perform the steps in each method, test to see whether the problem is resolved before you go on to the next method. If the problem is resolved by any method, you do not have to use the remaining methods.
    Method 1: restart your computer, and then try to install the updates again

    Close all programs that are running, restart your computer, and then try to install the updates again.

    Note Restarting the computer will make sure that all previous installations have finished, and that no remaining processes require a system restart before they can finish.
    Method 2: Run the System Update Readiness tool (CheckSur.exe)

    Download and run the System Update Readiness tool. This tool runs a one-time scan for inconsistencies that may prevent future servicing operations. For more information about how to download and run the CheckSur.exe tool, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    947821 Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7, and for Windows Server 2008 R2
    Try to install updates again.

    Note After you run the tool, the CheckSur.log file is saved in the following location:
    %systemroot%\logs\cbs
    Method 3: Run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe)

    Run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe). To do this, follow these steps:
    Open an administrative Command Prompt window.
    At the command prompt, type sfc /scannow, and then press Enter.
    After the scan is finished, try to install updates again.
    Method 4: Reset the content of the Catroot2 folder

    Reset the content of the Catroot2 folder. To do this, follow these steps:
    Type the following commands, and press Enter after each command:
    net stop cryptsvc
    md %systemroot%\system32\catroot2.old
    xcopy %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 %systemroot%\system32\catroot2.old /s
    Delete all contents of the catroot2 folder, but do not delete the catroot2 folder.
    Type the following command, and then press Enter:
    net start cryptsvc
    Exit the Command Prompt window.
    Method 5: Remove any incorrect Registry values

    Remove any incorrect values that may exist in the Registry. To do this, follow these steps:
    Click Start, and then type regedit in the Start Search box.
    In the Programs list, click regedit.exe.
    Locate and then select the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS
    Right-click COMPONENTS.
    Click Export.
    In the File Name box, type COMPONENTS.
    In the Save in box, click Desktop, click Save, and then save the file to your desktop.
    In the details pane, right-click PendingXmlIdentifier, and then click Delete. If this value does not exist, go to the next step.
    In the details pane, right click NextQueueEntryIndex, and then click Delete. If this value does not exist, go to the next step.
    In the details pane, right click AdvancedInstallersNeedResolving, and then click Delete. If the value does not exist, go to the next step.
    Restart the computer.
    Try to install the updates again.

    Hello,
    If os is not updated automatically check for internet settings.
    Then check the windows update settings. And even if the problem persists then
    You can download the service pack from windows website.

    Re: Unable to install Windows Vista updates

    Hi friend,

    As you have said that you have installed windows vista on your pc previously.

    Any virus might have attacked your pc as its performance has decreased.

    As you are saying that you are trying to update the latest version of the vista, it would not be possible because of the following reasons.

    1. If you have installed the genuine version of the windows vista that you have then it would update to the latest version.

    2. But if you have installed the corrupted version or the duplicate version then the updates could not be installed properly.

    So in order to increase the performance of your system all you need to do is either re-install the windows vista or else change the operating system with the compatible version of the windows vista.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    Thanking you....

    Hi,

    First of all Run an antivirus software to check and clean the whole computer .

    Log in to Microsofts official web site and select Windows Vista section and download drivers from there. They will provide you latest virus free download.

    Install them in your system and run smooth.

    Run Defrag from Accessories and under system tools to unfragment all files and arrange them in order.

    Hope those will do.

    Re: Unable to install Windows Vista updates

    Dear

    Most new Vista machines experience issues when a user/admin attempts to install Windows Updates. This is due to the Windows Updates Service not running.
    To resolve:
    1) Click Start
    2) Click run and type services.msc, click OK or press enter
    3) Locate the Windows Updates service, right click and click properties
    4) Set the service to automatic and click ok
    5) Right click the service and click start
    Try Windows Updates again
