    I keep getting this error code when I try to install my Windows Updates. I
    can find no information through Windows on this error code. Any help would
    be appreciated.

  2. 32-bit or 64-bit Windows Vista?

    No service pack installed, SP1 installed or SP2 installed?

    If 32-bit - have you tried resetting the Windows Update Components?

    E:\>set /a c = 0x652
    E:\>net helpmsg %c%

    Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation
    before proceeding with this install.

  5. Hi Andrea,

    I should add, in addition to what others have (rightly) said,

    Copied Ñesponse from Eddie Bowers [MSFT]

    You may want to look at the following registy keys (via regedit)
    If these keys were not cleared after an install it may appear that the
    install is still in progress:

    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager"

    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update"

    Reboot Required



    Good luck
