I don't know if this suggestion was supposed to help, but it didn't.

It looks like you have restrictions in 'Group Policies'. Were you able to download Windows updates in Vista?

Yeah. I have never had a problem before. Now every time I click "Check updates" in windows update I get that error.

I've even e-mailed Microsoft about it. They said they would get back to me within 24 hours. It's been 48. Gotta love the support!

Try this ....
  • Please download Dial-A-Fix from one of the following mirrors:
  • Extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Double click Dial-a-Fix.exe to start the program.
  • Press the green double checkmark box (Looks like this: )
  • UNcheck Empty Temp Folders, as well as Adjust Time/Date in the prep section. The prep section should then look like this:

  • Click on go
  • Exit/Close Dial-A-Fix
Next please go to windows update and install all critical updates
Microsoft Windows Update
Reboot, and see if that solves your update issues

When I go to double click it, it says "Dial-a-fix is not ready for Vista (yet). There are many changes in Vista that prevent the normal operation of Dial-a-fix. Check the Dial-a-fix website after Windows Vista has been released in the retail market."

Why is it thinking I have Vista?

because that program was designed for Win XP. Windows 7 wasn't even around back then. Win 7 is just Vista refined.

Makes sense. I thought it said it was compatible with Vista in its description, but I checked it over again and it isn't. Good catch.

Anymore ideas? I've e-mailed Microsoft...AGAIN since they haven't responded to my first e-mail.

Another idea ....

Step 1. Open Notepad (or any text editor).
Step 2. Copy and paste the following command lines into the Notepad window (the /s switch runs the commands silently, freeing you from having to press Enter after each line):

regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll

Step 3. Save the file to your desktop, as a .bat or .cmd extension.
Step 4. Double-click the icon of the .bat or .cmd file.
Step 5. A command window will open, run the commands, and then close.

Now see if you can update.
