Cannot install Service Pack 1 after 4 years, Windows Vista Factory restore

I have a Dell XPS ONE and used the option to restore to the factory due to several problems. The system is 4 years old and maintain a 4 year old Windows Vista Home Premium system proved to be too much for me to handle.

When I try to update Windows, I managed about 60 updates, but then I get to the SP 1. He tells me that it is installed, but then I go to the update again and it tells me that I need SP I... I can go through the same indefinitely, SP 1 installation, but he always tells me that I need to install Service Pack 1 even if it was just installed successfully. Aparently, SP 1 is not installed correctly, but it tells me that it is installed. It is not!

In the meantime, I can ' t reinstall Norton Internet Security. He tells me that I need SP2 for Vista.

It is good, that you can not install Norton Product.  Stop trying.  No McAfee either.
 
Avast, AVG, Avira , or UnThreat are choices fine (free option).
You could spend ~ 60USD during two years of eSET NOD32 AntiVirus (not more - just product AntiVirus) and which would be more worthwhile.

Regarding SP1 - do this manually.  Windows Vista Edition _, _ - bit? [Fill in the blanks]

Download and save the SP1 that is appropriate for your architecture of Vista (32-bit or 64-bit) operating system (on your desktop).  Reboot and logon.  Right click on the saved file and choose Run as administrator.  Follow through until it's done and restart with 5 minutes between each restart twice.

Download and save the SP2 appropriate for your architecture of Vista (32-bit or 64-bit) operating system (on your desktop).  Reboot and logon.  Right click on the saved file and choose Run as administrator.  Follow through until it's done and restart with 5 minutes between each restart twice.

Then download updates post-SP2 via normal means.

    Thank you!!

    If SP2 to SP3, is not installed, you could not possibly have a functional application of the antivirus installed and missing a value of more than four years of critical security updates! It is not a chance in h * that SP2 & SP3 will install with your computer in its current state, Erica.

  • Cannot install service pack 4 Windows on Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2

    I have recently installed windows service pack 3 and now when I try to install service pack 4, I get this

    No, it means that you are misunderstand any error message you see.  There is no service pack 4 for Windows XP.  All reputable antivirus meant for Windows XP software will install on Windows XP service pack 3.  If you have problems to install antivirus software, your computer may already be infected.

    You must install one antivirus resident program.  Do not install the Avast and AVG; Choose a.  You can have other anti-malware of on demand software.  The best of them is MalwareBytes AntiMalware (free).

    If you would like more information, please proceed as follows:

    1 display the full text, without paraphrasing, of any error message you get when you try to install a software of your choice.

    2. after the URL (link) of the Web site from which you downloaded the antivirus installation package.

    I want to know how I can install the service pack

    Hi jose Luiscastanedab,.

    Thanks for posting that query you in Microsoft Communities. It seems that you are not able to install service pack 2. Provide the following information:

    ·         Did you do changes on the computer before the show?

    ·         You use a third-party security software?

    ·         What is the full error message?

    Follow these methods.

    Method 1: Temporarily disable the security software.

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do not disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time that your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Method 2: Place the computer in a clean boot State to see if there is a software conflict as the clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: After completing the steps in the clean boot troubleshooting, follow step 3 from the link to start the computer to a Normal startupmode.

    Method 3: You can also install it manually by downloading from the Microsoft Download Center.
