If I go to windows updates in vista,where it says "updates were installed" it says never?And if I view update history it tells me I have not tried to install any updates for my computer.But if I click on "go to installed updates" it shows me 64 updates.Any idea why this is?I'm just trying to find out if I have ALL the updates I need?Thanks.

Not sure what you mean - "There doesn't seem to be a download for windows vista though"

There were several reference to Vista in the link I gave. The error code seems to be validation-related

All it takes is a little scroll through the list of links.

This page, for example, mentions Vista several times click here
