Failed to update windows update to get new updates

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by I_HEART_MS_VISTA, Oct 3, 2007.

  1. I've been trying to find a solution to this... Everytime I check for
    updates, I am told I needed to install a new version of windows update.
    Windows update then closes, and restarts. At that point, it informs me that
    windows update needs a new version of update in order to check for new
    updates. This happens repeatedly... I tried to restart, i tried to manually
    install a new version of windows update, now I'm starting to think I'm caught
    in a temporal distortion right out of the pages of Star Trek!!... I don't
    even know if I have any updates, but I've never wanted to check for updates
    more than when I know I can't. Any help would likely increase my lifetime by
    about 10 years and be greatly appreciated!

  2. Quoting PA Bear -

    Try downloading WUA v7.0.600.0384 from the appropriate link (x86 version,
    most likely) in this blog entry:
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/blo...15b76a269c1ef22a7fc7b88dcdbb92&showentry=1172

    Save the download to your desktop, then double-click on the saved file to
    install.

    If still no joy...
