Help! Windows Update Standalone Installer problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok, So i have had some issues since installing the Service Pack 1 for vista. One problem that I am running into is when I try to download the security updates that pop-up after my computer checks for vulnerabilities.

             The download process goes through fine, but then i get a box from Windows Update Standalone Installer that says "Preparation has completed." and the progress bar is flowing from left to right. The probelm with this is that it just keeps going and never finishes. I can't hit cancel either, i have to close it down using the task manager. I have left my computer on for over 12 hours to see if it would finish, but it doesn't
            What can I do?? I have about 13 vulnerabilities that I really need to update but i can't because of this issue? Do i need to reinstall the SP1? or what? PLEASE HELP!

    Thank you!
