I am looking to set up an old computer with new memory and hard drive. I have windows vista from my laptop computer can I install this into my newly updated computer and how.


Generally, the licensed software for your laptop is tied to that machine/brand. If you bought a copy of vista and installed it on the laptop, you may be able to install vista on three machines if that is the version you bought.
Most Microsoft programs are locked to one machine and won't activate on another system.
Now, if this is an old, slow (less than 1 Ghz) with less than 2 gigs, it probably will run Vista very slowly if you get it installed. I'd use the OS that was on the old machine instead of trying to install Vista.

Updates won't install Vista


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
