Vista not updating gets stuck

01-Mar-2016 21:41

I have tried everything on Microsoft support trying to fix it. It might take a while for windows to check for updates.

I ran MS Fix It about 10 times, opened and checked all those settings, did a Clean Boot, ran the "sfc /scannow command and much more. When I try use Windows Update, it just runs forever and then comes back and gives me the 80244019 error. I have a windows vista laptop too and I too notice this for the past few months.

After installing this and restarting, windows update gave me the same error 20844019.So I went back and did a system restore back to before I installed framework 3.5. Then I check for updates and installed all but framework 3.5.The check for updates took a long time for the list of updates to appear.You should just leave the laptop for a while (more than 3 hours+) Mainstream support for Vista ended April 10, 2012.I have a Lenovo 3000 Y410 laptop that originally came with Vista on it.
