Updates to Windows Vista after a complete reformat

Hi, I reformatted recently my husband old laptop to give to my youngest daughter. Everything fine until I start the Windows updates. There are 93 of them altogether and looking at the dates there are 25 of 2007, about 30 in the rest of 2009 and 2008. I tried to make them all at once and more than half fail and I get a boot error after reboot that I end up having to repair with a restore point.

Then I tried to install all 2007 the and it worked fine until I installed updates in 2008 and I was back to the startup error. I'm not sure what to do at this point.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

  • How long does take to install updates for Windows Vista after a new installation?

    Hello

    I'm trying to fix an old computer that I had lying around the House. She has Windows Vista installed.

    Today, I performed a clean installation of Windows using the recovery partition to try to make things a little more zippy.

    I know that Windows Vista is released some time ago, so I know there will be lots of updates for me to install. My question is how long approximately would it take to install all updates and get the operating system? It's a very slow computer at first.

    Thank you

    There is no way of knowing.  It is dependent on the speed of your connection, your CPU speed, etc.  They can even not available altogether at the end of standard support for Vista time.

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: Put 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 7 the link to start the computer to a Normal startupmode.
