Setup: Sony Vaio laptop (was expensive) Vista Business with SP1
Saga - long and problematic battle with Vista (I am not a fan of this OS)
Problem - Windows update isn't working and I can't seem to get it to work. Error code is 80070424 and I think it might be as previously (and to solve other problems) I have switched off a number of services (on advice) to get the laptop to work with some semblance of speed and stability.
Possibly useful (?) - Although SP1 is fully installed - when I tried to install SP2 (and run the MS SP2 readiness tool) I am advised that SP! needs to be installed first (- but it is)!
My IT support (one overstrectched chap in my part of UCL) advises me to simply upgrade to Wondows 7 - but I'd like to see if I can get Vista to update and then (big maybe) it might work?
