unable to update windows vista ! ! !

  AB's 19:43 22 Jun 2007

i need to instal some updates for my new comp with vista, including net framework 3.0 but every time i try i get the message

windows could not search for new updates
errors found

I have tried turning off user account control.. restarting comp etc but it still wont work ! i also found this click here
but when i try to rename the software distribution folder it tells me i need permission to do this even though i have admin rights, i have also gone into services to stop Automatic Updates service. as it suggests in the above link but Automatic Updates service is not shown ??????

would really appreciate some advice here as i need to install some software that needs the updates.

Thanks in advance

On Windows Vista go to Control Panel>Classic View>Administrative Tools>Services to find it.
