    thanks, i will check that when i get back tonight but i am pretty sure i have been keeping up with the updates, installing everything but the language packs (unless i should get them too!!) went on the update site, not sure which one i need, i am running the 32bit vista ultimate, If i download and install manually will i be able to remove it if something goes wrong?

    thanks for your help, i will try the automatic updates again, had a quick look at the notes on the web page about the update and it say i may need to update some drivers especially the coixent hd audio which i have on my system. How would i do this? is this not something that gets automatically updated?

I would agree with Solution 1. If you can't get HIS way working, go to Microsoft Online Downloads.

I wondered the same until I had loaded all available updates, including optional ones (but I don't know if that last was necessary). Then "voila" SP1 was shown as an available update! You can manually download the SP1 from the update site, but this is a 400+ Mb download. Give it a try. Download and install all available updates (this may take several inspections and installs [each probably requiring a reboot in between] so persevere). Don't think that because you have installed all the (visually) available updates that you have in fact installed ALL the updates, some require a previous update be installed before the next update is identified. This is probably what happens with SP1. Good luck

    Use the "Windows Updates" selection in the "All Programs" listing under the Start Button. This will select Available Updates for your computer (but as said above not all of them). Do this several times until you find that there are no more updates available.



    Note: The automatic Updater did not find and Install all the available updates on my computer.



    I would shy away from manually selecting the updates on the Microsoft Update page as most of these are not necessarily required for your computer.

    Hi again.



    Yes you can uninstall updates using the "Uninstall a Program" option in the Control Panel (found under the Start Button). The updates are usually listed under "View Installed Updates".



    A second method is to create a Restore Point before doing the Updates. This will allow you to Roll Back to a previous state if all goes wrong (but it shouldn't).

    The coixent(?) hd driver may need to be downloaded from the manufacturers site.



    Google the manufacturers name and go to Support or Downloads page. Select your device from the list and download and install that driver. Before doing so, check that it is Vista compatible.

Error code 8000ffff when updating vista SP1


To resolve Windows Update error 8000FFFF, try the following steps:

1) Launch REGEDIT

2) Go into HKLM\COMPONENTS, and check if these three values exist under the COMPONENTS key:

PendingXmldentifier
NextQueueEntryIndex
AdvancedInstallersNeedResolving

3) Providing they do exist, back up the Components key, then delete the three above values.
4) Restart the computer, and Windows Update should now be working fine.


Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions

Windows Vista will Shutdown but will restart in immediately


You can create a shutdown icon on your desktop that might resolve your issue.

  1. Right-click on the desktop, choose New and then Shortcut.4ffc395.jpg
  2. In the shortcut location box, enter
    • Shutdown.exe -s -t 00
  3. When you've clicked 'Next...', you'll be asked to name the shortcut. Probably best to name it 'Shutdown'
  4. After you click 'Finish' you should now have a new icon that you can double-click to shutdown your computer.
Hope this helps! : )

Vista SP1


You can determine it by running DXDIAG (directx diagnostics) by typing dxdiag into the search bar. The opening screen of DXDiag will show the version under the classification "Operating System"

If it says SP1 under Operating System, then service pack is installed. If it doesn't (like this one doesn't) then it isn't.
