    You can reset the Windows Update components by running the Fixit on this page. But if there is malware present, she will continue to reset the connection to the update servers:

    Suggest you download and save the Fixit. Then configure the system before the clean boot by running:

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista/Windows 7


    Once the Fixit has been downloaded and the system is started in the pure State, check that the native Windows Firewall is now on if a 3rd party firewall has been used previously. Now run the Fixit and choose the default mode. Restart once it's done and see if the system can be connected to the update servers. If he can't, then rerun the Fixit and choose aggressive mode. Turn it back on when he finished the race and updates.

    I suggest before you stop and install the updates, disconnect from the Internet, first.

    Hello again,

    Thought I would let you know that I've finally sorted this! :)

    In another forum I read a post from someone who had a similar problem and solved it by uninstalling the "failures" updated, restart the PC and then re-run the update. It worked! It had not occurred to me to try what I've assumed that 'impossible' meant that they had not installed at all, not that they didn't had simply not installed correctly and must have become corrupt.

    I hope this will help someone else who has the same problem, I've had!

    Best wishes


  • Problem message 66 a updated windows and performace error on Windows Vista

    Original title: windows update error

    I have problems to download windows updates.  I bought new spyware, PC unleashed and already have Norton. I tried everything I could think of to fix this.  I changed the settings, cleaned records etc. nothing works.  Considering that I know almost nothing about IT, I'm there winging.  My computer is Windows Vista Home Premium, 32-bit.  It's a gateway bought about 2 years ago.  He sometimes stops for no reason (no blue screen of death again).  I am desperate to solve this problem, but reluctant to take it to a computer repair store.  I tried Microsoft Fix Center several times and tried different repairs but still nothing.  Don't know what happened but suddenly, the computer is slower and updates do not work.

    I'm afraid to do too much fear I may damage my computer or worse.  I received the error 66 has time and time again.  I have received various messages which have failed since April but didn't know it was because my computer was always a small icon of security under the start menu that tells me to stop and install the updates so I could do this after I was using the computer think he was installing updates , but obviously none of them.  Now I can't even count how many updates have not been installed.

    Due to the scans, I have ran, it was said that my computer has high speed, a lot of RAM etc... but I have problems of instability.  It makes me wonder if it's something personal! Laughing out loud

    I would appreciate any assistance available.  Thank you.

  • Vista - update security KB982381 fails with the error Code: 80071AA7

    Update Cumulative security for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista still fails to install.  At the beginning I had 6 automatic updates which could not install (usually NOT a problem), so I individually installed each... reboot after each update.  Success on those.  I tried to update KB982381 more than 8 times without success.  I don't use IE as my browser.  My computer is constantly trying to install this and reboot... never works.  Don't know what to do.

    I did everything you suggested in the last email and I am sorry to say that the update has failed once again.   I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser, but I open IE * to run its difficulty etc.  I ran Windows Update (reset) in aggressive mode (what settings it reset?  I noticed when I went to the Control Panel, to look for updates and it listed that it is 'never' updates etc.).  When I did find updates sent to download, it came with one that was a failure and the other for Windows Defender.  This one has installed fine.  Let me know what I should try!  Thank you

  • Update NVIDIA VIBS fails with the error "device or resource busy".

    Hi, we have encountered an error where we are unable to obtain the density, we should be able to on our cards Nvidia K1. Specifically, with allocation of 512 MB RAM video for desktop computers, we approach, to no, 64 VM by GPU, we should be able to. I have a box to open with VMware and they suggested that I should update my drivers Nvidia on ESXi host. 304, 76 - running 1OEM.510.0.0.802205 and I found the version 319.65 - 1OEM.510.0.0.802205 on the Nvidia site. If I try to run software esxcli vib install v - NVIDIA - VMware_ESXi_5.1_Host_Driver_319.65 - 1OEM.510.0.0.802205.vib then I get the error:


    Error running /tardisks/NVIDIA_V.v00 rm:

    Return code: 1

    Output: rm: cannot remove ' / tardisks/NVIDIA_V.v00 ': device or resource busy

    If I try to run:

    esxcli software vib remove - vibname = NVIDIA - VMware_ESXi_5.1_Host_Driver

    Then, I get the same error.

    All the VMS are arrested and my host is in maintenance mode. How to uninstall we 304.76 pilot so I can install driver 319.65? Is there a service that I have to stop first or something?

    Here is the complete procedure:

    To update the VIB of NVIDIA GPU, you must uninstall the currently installed VIB and install new VIB, as described above. To uninstall the currently installed VIB:

    1. Stop all VMs using 3D acceleration.
    2. Place the ESXi host in maintenance mode.
    3. Open a prompt on the ESXi host.
    4. Turn off Xserver by running the command:

      /etc/init.d/xorg stop

    5. Remove the NVIDIA VMkernel driver by running the command:

      vmkload_mod -u nvidia

    6. Remove the VIB by running the command:

      esxcli software vib remove -n NVIDIA-VMware

      You can now install a newer NVIDIA GPU VIB.
