Windows update agent 7.6.7600.256 stops windows updates RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am trying to fully update my Vista Home Premium 32bit laptop fully prior to installing Windows 7 update. All goes well until the new update agent installed. My laptop would not download updates after that. The update agent downloaded and installed without my instruction. I had purposely set the downloads to my choosing to download and install. This is the 3rd time I have reloaded windows to correct the corruption from the windows update agent so I am certain of the exact point updates stopped working. I have a Toshiba laptop that is running fine. I want to know If there is any way to keep this Malware from loading again. I have been seeing that Windows 7 has been having the same trouble with this same Update Agent.  I have tried all the Microsoft Fixit and readiness tools with no effect on the offending update agent and since we cannot uninstall this How am I going to update from this point? I don't trust that installing Windows 7 will do anything to solve the problem of the corruption from this update agent 7.6.7600.256.

    Follow VZ's instruction. Open the link he provided and follow the instructions. If you need more help let me know. It worked. After manually installing the updates I ran Windows Update and it found 186 updates in less than 10 minutes. Credit goes to VZ.
