@Pete: Let me take a wild guess: updated Automatic 'hangs' when trying to install one or more updates of security (for office or Vista), you're running Vista SP1 and SP2 do not installed yet either? If I'm right, SP2 outweighs the other updates in terms of free assistance (IOW it all is connected)...

  • Cannot update Windows Media Player security update

    I tried to download a book from library using Overdrive and it wouldn't work.  He said that I needed to update the Media Security Update window.  I did and I said OK to download the file, it gave me a message saying "a security upgrade is required to play this file. You want to download this update? "I said yes and he gave me a message stating:"the date of the certificate is invalid or has expired"the only option was to close or web assistance.  Help Web lacked all of the solutions and close terminated the option and left me in the same situation as before.  Any ideas on how I can get past this so I can down load books from library.

    Hello can not understand,

    Make sure you have the latest Windows Media Security Update.
    You can download it here:

    This is for Windows XP. If you need the upgrade of Windows XP 64-bit, check here:

    Since you use Overdrive to download your book, I suggest that you contact their support.

    I hope this helps.

  • Cannot update Windows / / Windows think that its true / / Windows Explorer crash

    BACK STORY: Windows told me that my old HDD is faulty and I need to replace it. I therefore created a system disk image and restore the HARD drive fault and buy a new. I have restored my image for the new HARD drive, and apparently some of the system files that got copied have been corrupted.

    I'll HAVE PROBLEMS: The main problem I encounter is that windows will not update. I'll go to the start menu and try to choose windows update and it will sit in the windows Explorer screen blank until it crashes. This is the only time that windows Explorer will crash it's fine otherwise. If I have correctly interpreted my read, inability to update windows is caused by the software is is not authentic. Which brings me to the next point.
    Windows don't think that it is authentic, even if I see the CDKEY in the system information window and when I hit "Activate Windows" in the search bar in the start menu, that it says "Activation was successful." I get a window saying: I thought that I humor the system and try and validate it although this Web site: when I try and install the software Validation of Windows, I get this error: 
    TECHNICAL issues: I bought my computer from a major retailer with Windows Vista, he came with an OS disk. I've then upgraded to Windows 7 a few months after it is released and subsequently lost the installation disk that really means nothing because it is not the full operating system. So, indeed, I have no way to find my drive upgrade for windows reinstall/repair, which is what I would have done originally.
    What I DID: I ran the command " Sfc/scannow " to the command window and he returned with: when I try and access the .log for this, he tells me access denied and I can't access the safe my life.
    QUESTION: Is there something I can do to fix this? Something like a Windows download different difficulty tool or something else that I don't know who's going to help me fix the windows before going outside and by a new Windows 7 disc to repair the files?
    Thank you for your time

    Try to run Windows Update manually again now. I have seen some indications that something was temporarily horked on the end of Microsoft recently & it is now fixed elsewhere. YMMV, of course.
