Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
I GET AN ERROR CODE : 8000FFFF WHEN I TRY TO GET WINDOWS
UPDATES FOR VISTA . AUTOMATIC UPDATE FUNCTION DOES NOT WORK. I HAVE WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM ON MY TOSHIBA
Why struggle like this when you can download and install version COMPLETE with all service packs and current updates. Then just make an Acronis copy of it just in case your system crashes.
Download a copy of Windows whatever your version. Just make sure it already had all the service packs and current updates included. I have found that best results and easiest downloads come with first carefully perusing associated comments on the appropriate entry, then downloading such a file through reputable torrent sites.
Better this than jumping through hoops and running the gauntlet with Microsoft just to get the download to work and if you are lucky to keep your connection running through the hours it takes for the download.
The problem here can come up in an instant again and it becomes a nightmare of days to correct.
I see no ethic problem here if you have already purchased and installed a genuine copy from Microsoft if they continue introducing instabilities in their updates like this.
