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.

as kaspersky is good antivirus software may be there are no viruses but who knows...
you can try disable the dns client (it cashes the resloved domain names, and sometime keeps old info, sometimes viruses use it to stop your access to sites like microsoft update or so).
you can give it a try - right click on my computer icon, then select manage from the menu. locate the "services" on the left pane and then look for the "DNS client" and disable it (right click, then stop). then try to update again. you can start it back or disable it - its not important for OS working.

Updates not configured correctly reverting changes help


Good morining, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to answer your question. Your updates aren't configured correctly and you want to know if reverting changes will help? The answer is yes! You can revert changes to an update by using a tool called System Restore. System Restore is a tool provided by Windows Vista that allows you to revert to your computer's last known configuration settings. Do not worry, this will not restore your computer to it's factory settings unless you are installing Vista for the first time. This is helpful if you want to resolve a corrupted file or uncorrect update configuration issue; an error causing you to not be able to upload your OS: or something causing your system to run slowly.

To upload System Restore:

1. 9_26_2011_1_23_39_am.pngClick the Windows logo or press it on your keyboard.

2. 9_26_2011_1_27_06_am.pngThe quickest way to find this is to type "System Restore" in the search box.

3. 9_26_2011_1_29_08_am.pngOnce the System Restore link is shown, click it.

4. 9_26_2011_1_33_59_am.pngIf User Account Control (UAC) asks you (the administrator) to give it permission, click Continue.

5. 9_26_2011_1_37_13_am.pngThe System Restore menu comes up and asks you if you want to either use the recommended restore point or a different restore point of your choosing. I would choose the most updated restore point if possible (ususally the "Recommended restore" one).

6. 9_26_2011_1_39_22_am.pngClick Next>

7. 9_26_2011_1_42_16_am.pngClick Finish to confirm your restore point. You will need to close any open programs or files before doing so because your computer will be restarted.

If you want, once the system is restored, you can try the update again if you want. Knowing from experience, I have had to install update two even three time before they were successful. I hope this answers your question and solves your problem.

My windows vista won't open


If it does this after re-booting the computer then something got corrupted when it was updating. You could try pressing F8 when the computer is first booting up(right before window starts). This will bring up a menu. Choose the option to run the last known good configuration and see if that gets windows working again. You might need to choose a restoration point to get windows working. If you get it working and then the windows update tries to install the updates again hopefully they will work this time. If it happens again then make sure to cancel those updates and contact Microsoft with the software issue.

There was a problem with one of Microsoft's security updates recently and it causes problems with Vista. I had the same problem. Microsoft published a bulletin on this. Do a Google search for "KB973879". and you will find the solution in depth. Basically, all you have to do is start your computer in safe mode and go to control panel and "add remove programs" and delete that security update labeled "KB973879". Windows will reinstall a new version to replace it when it does its next update. Please do a search on Google for that number and you will see what I am telling you is true.

Good advice from the first expert. After reinstalling the operating system, allow Vista to install updates from the Microsoft site instead of installing from a disk. You did not specify if you had done this. If given a choice of updates needed for Vista, choose only the service pack and no other software initially. After it installs, you can continue on and choose to install additional updates from the Microsoft site.
