Which version of Essentials do you have installed? 2012 is the latest. You may have a false prompt and not need KB2434419.

Thanks , im using vista premium , and as far as i know ive got windows essentials 2011 installed but i keep getting an update for it and each time i try to update iut says : you have a different build flavor of windows live then asks me to delete the present one and reinstall but i cant delete the one thats already installed , should i try to install 2012 instead ?

Control Panel and Uninstall a program will tell you which version.

Thanks all i tried a repair but to no avail , i then deleted it but still the error message came up so finally i used cc cleaner to sort out the register and that did it , ive now installed the update , thanks everyone for your help .
