Installed June 2014 updates.On startup "Failed to connect to a window service blah blah blah."Haven't had this problem for some while.However our 'friends' at Microsoft never disappoint.Latest June updates have resurrected it. Last time it related to just one update.Anyone any idea which is the culprit this time? I have done a system restore and everything is back to normal. Running Vista (ok. stop rolling about laughing)

Set the updates to notify but do not download and install. Then run win updates and install one at a a time. Rebooting when required. You might find that they will all install correctly this way and possibly you won't get the error. If you do then you'll find the update culprit so you can uninstall and 'hide' it.

I'm not laughing.

Honestly.
