Re: Impossible to update vista

Go here: Microsoft Malware Protection Center
http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/default.aspx

In the right frame under ' Latest Definition Updates ', click the
appropriate link for the Version of Vista installed and SAVE the
definitions.
Close the browser and any other open programs.
Right click mpas-fe.exe [or, mpas-fex64.exe] and choose 'Run as
administrator', follow any UAC prompts.
Did that get it installed ?

Windows Update error 8024001b
http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...182391033.mspx

Usually indicates that Windows Update itself is being updated and/or
installed. This could take several minutes - suggest you try installing
updates later.

If you receive Windows Update error 8024001b while trying to install
updates, an update for Windows Update itself is being installed. Depending
on how many programs are currently running and which operating system files
or folders are affected while this update is being installed, it might take
several minutes before you can install other updates for your computer. Try
installing updates again later.

If the problem persists after you try installing updates later, go to the
Windows Update Support Center (
http://support.microsoft.com/common/...h=1&gprid=6527 )
website to request support by e-mail.
