Sorry if this has been asked before. I can't find an answer any where online.I have new windows updates waiting from 2 days ago but they fail when I try to install. What gives?
I am running Windows 7 Vista.

Just for clarity.. Is it Windows 7 or is it Vista ?

and.. for the updates that fail.. does it show any error or status messages?

I don't know the difference but I have vista. I see error messages for the failed 5 updates but nothing works yet.

Ok, so you have Vista (different than Windows 7)

So.. Do these error messages that you see say anything other than "failed"?

It gives error code but none of it makes sense to me.
I read on the internet today that microsoft doesn't support vista's that don't have sp2 after the date of april 13 2010. That happens to be the same date these updates started rolling in. Connected? The updates sound important so I realy want to get them!

I have and update that I keep trying to install Im running windows 7.  It is a security update for Microsoft works 9.  When I try to install it tells me to install the disk..  What disk?

Do you have/use MS Works 9?

Re: windows update

No so why is it telling me to install this update?

Re: windows update

..because Windows THINKS you have it, or a piece of it. Did you ever have it? (like, did it come with the computer?) does it show in your Add/remove programs? If so, you may try to UNinstall it.
