Having problems with your Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

Updates won't install Vista

\015 I have a Sony laptop with Vista. It is almost two years old. I have it set to install updates automatically. It worked fine for a while, but now it shows two updates KB948109 and KB951338 continue to fail every day.\015\012\015\012It doesn't show that Service Packs 1 or 2 have ever been installed. It seems like it is trying to install them automatically, but the updates are not working. Can you help me?\015

Answers :

Both of those patches are security updates. To be honest with you I would not worry about them. They are not urgent updates. I own vista myself and I do not install anything unless it says urgent. Otherwise Vista is known for having you install certain updates that are not for your computer meaning 32bit or 64bit computers. So just keep that in mind
