SOURCE: Unable to check for updates with Windows Vista

I've been having the same error when I try to run Windows update on a Vista Ultimate machine setup for use with our SBS 2003 server running ISA 2004.

The Solution that I found is this.

When you setup Vista for use with a domain it creates the following regkey with a subkey etc ( policy ) that sets Vista to look for a WSUS server.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"WUServer"="http://serversbs"
"WUStatusServer"="http://serversbs"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
"AUOptions"=dword:00000004
"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000003
"NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001
"RescheduleWaitTime"=dword:00000001
"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001

When I deleted this key and rebooted my PC windows update was working.


Hope this was somehow usefull

How do I turn on windows defender in win 8?


Hello Donna,
if you install a third-party anti-virus/anti-spyware software, Windows Defender turns off automatically by itself. So, before turning on Windows Defender, please be sure that you have completely uninstalled the other anti-virus solution from your computer. Now, get your computer restarted and Defender will be turned on by itself.

After restarting if Defender does not turn on automatically, go to Start menu, type Windows Defender and press enter to execute Windows Defender. If the status shows that you have to turn it on manually, do so and you are done.

Please let us know and we are here to help you!


Regards, Mrityunjay.

I have a problem trying to turn on windows defender on my pc.. i try a few diferent ways but no luck.. can someone help with a solution that works for sure yhank s


At the startup of Windows XP, you may see an error that says "Unable to Start Windows Defender service". This issue occurs, if some of the registry entries are corrupted. Restarting the service from the service console may also prompt the same error.

To resolve this issue, you may need to uninstall and reinstall the Windows Defender. Follow the below mentioned steps:

1. Click Start, Control Panel.
2. Click Add or Remove Programs.
3. Click Windows Defender, and click Remove.

This will uninstall Windows Defender. You can download and reinstall the updated version from the following link:

Hope this helps!!! Let me know if you need more help

  6. A “Windows Defender is turned off” dialog message will appear, confirming that Windows Defender no longer runs. Once the Windows Defender is disabled, it’s sort of been uninstalled too, as any attempt to run the program will bring up “Windows Defender is turned off dialog window and unable to proceed to Windows Defender main window anymore. windows-defender-off.jpg
