Updating vista home
Attempts to fix the problem seems to have made the problem worse.
in the Vista Forums indicate that KB3145739 didn't fix the slow Patch Tuesday updates this month - or at least not for everyone. I did my Windows Updates last week, for the APRIL 2016 update issuances.
OS: Windows Vista 32 Bit Home Premium I am unable to install recent Windows Vista updates because the updater hangs at "Checking for updates". and "Most recent checks for updates" says "never" ... which I assume is the reason for the "never" labels mentioned above. I used file "Windows Update Agent30-x86.exe" with the /wuforce switch and ran it from a HDD not containing the OS. "Troubleshoot problems with installing updates" I ran the Fix It tool ... If not, you can try to download and install it manually: https:// Later you can enable it again if you want.) Edited by devilus, 22 April 2016 - AM.
Attempts to fix the problem seems to have made the problem worse. and it fixed a couple of things but didn't fix error code 0X80070057 4. Having the same problem and pursuing similar solutions with out success, I tried downloading the recommended update for my Vista Home Premium SP2 64 bit OS.
Well, there is nothing really stopping you from continuing to use the operating system.
After April 11th, your computer will still work as usual.
Although my system is 64 bits the listed requirements did not specify 32 bits.
However, when I attempted to install it stated update not for my system.
This created a new Windows\Catroot2 folder and a new Windows\System32\Software Distribution folder ... auth=1 Installed the latest version of the Windows Update Agent. After applying this patch, check the updates manually.
However you will be more vulnerable to security risks and viruses – especially if your PC is connected to the internet. Especially if you store sensitive or personal information on your computer.
Also, as more hardware manufacturers continue to updated and optimise their devices for more recent versions of Windows, expect to come across more apps and devices that no longer work with Windows Vista.
Regardless, my humble gratitude for your assistance!
