Question about Computers & Internet
Windows vista wans to update something [i have no idea what]but it wont do it and comes up with 2 error codes:
Make sure that your firewall and antivirus features or programs are turned off (disabled) when installing. It may be better, then, to download the update to your desktop (save instead of open) and then install by double clicking. If you are concerned about potential Internet threats during this brief period, you will need to disconnect from the Internet to install, which will require this type of download and install setup. Please let me know if this is unclear or if you need additional help to do this, including additional details regarding what PC/model and software you are using. It is common that allowing antivirus to run while installing software will cause an install to fail.
