Windows 7: Windows Vista Microsoft Updates WON'T Install

Windows Vista Microsoft Updates WON'T Install

Hey guys,

So, I am having a problem with getting the updates installed on a friends Vista laptop.

I went in to services and stop and restarted the BITS service and rebooted and tried it with no success.

I keep getting error "80072efd", which says to add these 3 things to the firewall



Number one, I don't see a place to add a URL to an exception list, its just programs..
Number two, those are supposed to be already added in (according to MS)
Number three, when I just removed the firewall, I still couldn't do the updates.

Any suggestions?
