Code 646 when trying to update

You need to disable your firewall. If you’re using McAfee Personal Firewall, or Norton Internet Security or another Firewall vendor, see vendor support page for assistance in disabling it (temporarily).

If you’re using the built-in Vista Firewall, keep reading.

- Open the Control Panel and select Security.

-Select Turn Windows Firewall on or off.

- Select Off (not recommended), click Apply and then OK.

- Back at the Windows Update screen, click the Try again button.

-The download(s) and installation should start…

-And this time successfully install. Now make sure to re-enable your Firewall once your PC restarts.

* Though this solution will work for most Vista Update errors.
