    OK - I'm at a loss. Done the internet search with no help - contacted MS
    Vista support and their canned solution didn't help.

    ANY ideas how to resolve this error???

    Most likely cause is a Third party service which is running in the computer.
    Clean boot and then install the updates.

  3. Tommy says this is not supposed to happen, because Windoze is so
    "smart", updates never fail to install.


    Top tip for Windoze users, create a shortcut to regedit.exe, and drag it
    into the startup folder so the registry editor is running in the
    background, ready to deal with the latest ****-up in Windoze.

    It will also save you having to start -> run and type 'regedit' all day

    No Regedit needed.

    "1.. Open Start menu, select Run, type cmd, and then press Enter.

    2.. To view the current proxy settings, at Command Prompt, type
    Proxycfg.exe and then press Enter to run the command.

    3.. To clear the existing proxy settings, type Proxycfg -d and then
    press Enter.

    4.. Finally, ensure that the Background Intelligent Transfer Service is
    running on the computer by performing the following steps:

    1.. Open Start menu, select Run, type Services.msc, and then press

    2.. Scroll down the Services window and double-click on Background
    Intelligent Transfer Service.

    3.. If the service is not running, on the General tab, click the
    Start button.

    5.. Run Windows Vista update on the PC again. "

    Yeh, just like this "intuitively obvious" solution to a Mac OS X
    problem after the 10.5.6 update:

    After updating to Mac OS X 10.5.6, many users are experiencing
    problems with Time Machine backups, wherein the system will show an
    error stating the users does not have sufficient privileges on
    required files for the backups.

    Apple Discussions poster GreggSymington writes:

    "After the 10.5.6 update today my backup is no longer recognized, and
    when trying to reselect the drive i get this error: You do not have
    appropriate access privileges to save the files '.001b6397c156' in
    folder 'Backup'."

    Time Machine associates backups to the computer based on the
    computer's MAC address, which is a unique identifier number associated
    with the ethernet card. The computer stores this information in an
    invisible file that has the computer's MAC address as it's name. This
    file is stored at the root of the Time Machine drive, enabling the
    drive to be used with multiple computers. For some reason, the latest
    OS update has altered either the file or how permissions are read from
    the file. Basically, this file has become corrupted, and users should
    be able to manually reset ownership and permissions on the file with
    the terminal.

    Fix: Change ownership and permissions on the file In the "Terminal"
    application, perform the following steps to figure out what the file
    is called, and then change the permissions on it accordingly.

    1. Type "cd" followed by a single space, and then drag the Time
    Machine drive to the Terminal window. The command should then look
    something like this:

    cd /Volumes/Backup
    2. Press enter to submit that command, and then enter the following

    ls -la
    3. Note the name of the file that begins with a period and has 12
    characters in the name, such as ".001b6397c156" mentioned in the quote

    4. Now enter the following commands, substituting "FILENAME" in the
    commands with the file name exactly as it's shown both in the error as
    well as in the output of the command in step 2, including the period
    before it (ie: ".001b6397c156"):

    sudo chown `id -un` FILENAME
    sudo chmod 400 FILENAME

    Boy, I had that one figured out as soon as I heard about the problem!
    Right? or Touché?

    You were claiming that there was "no Regedit needed[!]" as if the
    solution was easier.

    It was not.

    So, no. Not touché, sorry.

    No, I was claiming that solving OS X issues can be as technically
    difficult as Vista.

    So, touché.
