Make sure all programs are closed and run updates. It will take a while with that many updates. You may have to run it more then once since some of the updates won't work till the previous ones are installed. One way to do it to take less time start with the oldest and only install a few at a time. They do not have to be all installed at once. That way you can install a few each day till you have them installed. Also look at the updates some may not be needed if you don't have or use the programs the update is for. Also internet explorer 8 is not needed with vista and it does cause problems in the computer if installed. That is why you should look at and only install what is needed.

Shutdown, and choose to _NOT_ install those updates.
Restart, and try again to install the updates.

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.

How do I install all of Windows Vista's Updates at one?


You cannot install all at once. What you can do after you get it up to date is make an image of the drive and save it in a hidden partition or DVD.

If you ever have troubles again and need to reinstall it, you simply restore the image and Vista will be installed with all the updates already included

For both of you. Update Vista through windows update service. Even if this is a new printer the software CD may already be out dated. Go to Lekmark (After updating Vista), & download & install the latest software drivers for Vista. (Click the link provided). http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:479:0:0&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista&target=

If Vista still fail to see the printer call Lexmark. (Number in manual). Or click on this next link for help.
