    Ok. All day for me, I keep getting an error code 80040154 everytime I click
    on the "Check for Updates" button in the Windows Update window. Does anyone
    know how to fix this?

    Get Dial-a-Fix. After you unzip it, check "Empty temp folders," "Fix
    Windows Installer," and "Fix Windows Update." Click on "Go" hope that
    it will fix your problem.

    Is there a way to fix this that the software IS Vista compatiable?

    I've had this problem for a few weeks and it's very very frustrating.

    How can Microsoft not have a fix for this... and for so long?

    I am running Vista on a laptop, and have another error too, got the BSOD
    with a usbccgp.sys error. I foudn a patch on the MS website for this, but
    then when I try to install it, I get the same 80040154 error. So basically,
    I can't do any updates whatsoever...

    I am seriously considering a rebuild and just going back to Windows XP... I
    hope Vista doesn't turn in to the same fiasco as Windows ME.

    I finally fix this issue and it is not the outcome that you want!

    I had to reload the software onto my notebook and then downloaded all the
    updates for the system.
    Currently my system is running correctly after 2 weeks now with no issue and
    I have reloading the same software that was previously on the system. What I
    have done is NOT enable windows defender after reading other people's

    The thing about this is that a network trojan made its way onto my system
    while performing the widows updates which McAfee found when loaded, after the
    updates. Luv the internet!!
