unsure Windows Vista Fails To Update
  

Hi Everyone! I have windows vista ultimate. I have MTNL Tri-Band connection and the speed is quite better. Whenever i try to update my vista when it prompts for available update, half of the update fails. When i reboot my computer, i get an error :
Code:
file: \windows\system32\winload.exe
status: 0xc000000f
Then it prompts me to select an option from :
  • Restart and use vista disc to repair
  • Use windows memory diagnostic

Any Suggestions? Help Guys!

First you need to repair your Vista. Boot from your Vista DVD and Select the Repair option. Now Select the comman prompt and type :
Code:
copy c:\windows\system32\boot\winload.exe c:\windows\system32\
This will copy the cached copy of winload.exe to the current directory as your winload.exe was corrupt. Now reboot your computer and download the Vista Update patch : KB938371.
Install it and reboot.
You're Done!

My windows vista fails to update as well. I get the following error in the event log. 2011-04-14 22:13:05:760 1360 1714 DnldMgr Regulation: {7971F918-A847-4430-9279-4A52D1EFE18D} - Update 0353718D-798D-4D39-9EB0-33BAF2B1F0E6 is "Priority" regulated and can NOT download. Sequence 8726 vs AcceptRate 0.
2011-04-14 22:13:05:760 1360 1714 DnldMgr * Update is not allowed to download due to regulation.

How can I fix his so my windows updates download and install?

Re: Windows Vista Fails To Update

I had some points that you can try on. First you will need to disable the firewall and your antivirus software. Disable the Automatic update thing and the bits service. Then run command net stop wuausery, net stop bits. Go in your windows directory and delete all from softwaredistribution folder. After that again start the automatic update service and bits servce. Just run the above command with net start.
