Yes, abort. Download FIWW (Free Internet Windows Washer). Run it for temp file and internet cache. Go to your computer manufacturer's website and check for software updates for your model. Also download Eusing's free registry cleaner and run it as a last resort.

Windows vista starter update and install failed....


in my experience you need to reinstall your OS, Vista is a pain in the *** where sometimes you cant do anything other than format and start again, though i heard a rumour that "starter" doesnt let you install alot of things, like updates, dont quote me though.

Cant install my pinnacl 110i on windows 7. Any one had success with that? It was working perfectly well with Vista. But I'm a ****** for pain! :D


Download updated VISTA drivers from here: http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/PCTV%20Drivers/ReadmePCTV.htm
If the driver have an installer try to install from it.
If not success try to run the installer in compatibility mode (right click - properties - compatibility tab - run in compatibility mode with WINDOWS VISTA)
If all of those steps faill try to MANUALLY install the driver:
Go to device manager, select your device, right click on it and select update controller software - try to find it in Windows Update (online)
If not driver available online try again, but select the "find on my computer" option, and select a folder containing the drivers.
An excellent website to find drivers and solutions is: http://www.driverguide.com

I cannot install Global Star Software's JetfighterIV Fortress America on my computer


What operating system are you running? Is it XP or Vista? if it is Vista, that is most likely the issue.
You can contact MS if you are running Vista and ask them for any driver update. also, go to MS web site and use the "Updater".

When i want to update an update that needs to be updated


Do you know what the update is that fails? I guess the easiest way to see it is instead of using auto update, use Custom Update and see what needs to be installed.

I have also seen were some people have suggested this is caused by spy-ware on your system. Perhaps a in-depth scan would eliminate that possibility.
Personally I would not worry much about HP updates. The only time I would think of doing such updates is if I were having a problem with my system and an update directly addressed the issue. In fact I would go as far as to remove the HP updater.

Now Windows Updates are a different matter and should be done as they often cover security issues.

The HP Update program (bloatware, in my opinion) doesn't work with Vista very well, even though the system would have been bought with Vista pre-installed.Vista.

If you want to get rid of the HP Updates program, go to the Start menu and into the 'Control Panel'. Select "Programs & Features". The program is called 'HP Update'. You can Uninstall that program there if you like. You can manually check for updated hardware drivers by going to the HP site's Drivers and Downloads area, and entering your Desktop Model Number.

The HP Updates program also seems to have problems with various software/hardware firewalls, particularly when running Windows Vista, preventing it to search for and download optional driver updates for your HP computer.

HP says that hpsudelpacks.exe is a virus which affects mostly the automatic downloading of hp updates. go to their website and download the realtek audio driver manually to see if you can actually download updates to begin with. You should update any spyware or virus program if you have to and then shut down my computer and restart in safe mode. When in safe mode , run windows defender found here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/defender/default.mspx , then run avg virus program found here http://free.avg.com/download?prd=afe , then restart your computer, click on hp update in my start button area, and you should able to download another update.

Regards..
