Impossible to install new Windows security Updates

  User-1227197 13:37 15 Sep 2009


I am working on a PC Vista x86 and never had such a problem. For the last month now, I have not been able to install the following updates: (KB 968389, KB 956744, KB968816, KB970653, KB967723, KB970710, KB973540, KB948465).

Have also try to install them manually but it still does not work. I have SP1 on my PC. I have tried to install SP2 but it keeps telling me that I should have SP1 installed first. (which I have!).

Any help with this will be much appreciated.

By the way, do I really need those updates?

I don't think Dial A Fix works on Vista.

How do I uninstall SP1 so I can try reinstalling SP1 then SP2 ?
