On Vista, having recurring problem with an error code when installing updates.
The error relates to the "File system transaction log" and Microsoft have a fix

which works but the problem recurs.
Defender updates always OK, it's the "others" that cause problem like todays IE8 compatability one.
Anyone else had this issue.

i don't know so much about your update problem other than vista holds a temp file hidden away, so find that and empty that folder & start again with the updates, but 1st get rid of that IE 8 & go back to IE 7.

I can't see me going back to IE7 now tbh, only mentioned IE8 as it seems to be updates "other than Defender" that cause the problem.
What I have done (for no real reason) is run the chk disk utility and followed that up with sfcscannow, and then run the "fix it" wizard from MS (in the link at the start) but won't know until more updates come along.

I can see that you have tried to fix things, but Microsoft have not yet fixed IE 8, so that maybe giving you problems.
