Vista Update installation problem

  tarren 17:46 11 Aug 2008


I am endeavouring to install update KB940157, Windows Search 4.0 for Vista.

However, it's been on the boil now for the last 90 minutes, should it be taking this long? This is the 3rd attempt at this installation, give up at 1 hour on previous attempts.

Would be grateful for any info on this.

Vista Home Premium.

Are you trying to download/install from Windows Update?

If so, trying manually downloading and installing from click here instead.

If all else fails, give up as it's not that important to waste so much time and effort.

I tried the CC route but no go I'm afraid, sunny, and I appreciate it's not that important an update, Nuts, so I'll kick it into touch.

Thank you all for your input.
