windows update fails (again...)

Recommended Posts

uhh, I'm having a little problem with my windows update (vista)

It downloaded service pack 2 for my office 2007 installation but after downloading it gave an error (code 57A).

I've tried everything, and each time I end up in screwing op my pc :P

Hurray to system restore! :P

Any ideas how to fix this?

(p.s. my pc is spyware/adware/virus free)

A question is never dumb, the person who asks it is.

 

system: Windows Vista home premium sp1, 4 GB RAM, Intel Core 2 quad cpu Q9400 2.66 GHz, Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX/9800 GTX+

What security software do you have? Are you behind a proxy? Do you have a router and/or hardware firewall? Is it Windows Update that fails, or automatic updates?

There could possibly be a registry fix in either of these links:

Googling brings up a lot of folk having the same problem. No consolation, but you're not alone, which means there's probably a fix out there somewhere.

 

The first link looks promising.

 

Hope this helps, but if not post back, as there may be suggestions from the other guys.

I tried most of those 'solutions' but none of them worked (except for the one where you have to reset your registry, but that one messed up my pc :P)

So I just re-installed windows, there were a lot of anoying errors and this one was the drop that did it...

problem solved! (my system works even better then before) :P

thanks anyway and sorry to disturb you :)
