What happens when there is a security update for Office? We now have Windows XP Service Pack 2, which enables a firewall by default.If you happened to know about the Office Update website, you could run an Active X control to check for Microsoft Office updates. Windows XP SP2 also encourages you to enable Automatic Updates for the OS. As it turns out, an enhanced version of Windows Update, called Microsoft Update, was also released in 2005.However, after further investigation, I realized that the update process of Microsoft Update has changed.If you are not aware of these changes, you may end up with a Microsoft Office installation that is missing security updates.Regardless, my humble gratitude for your assistance!OS: Windows Vista 32 Bit Home Premium I am unable to install recent Windows Vista updates because the updater hangs at "Checking for updates". auth=1 "Resetting the entire Windows Update Component manually" I did this using the command prompt as outlined in the article.I used file "Windows6.0-KB947821-v35-x86.msu" and the resulting "Check SUR.log" file said there were no remaining unfixed errors. Reran the Fix It tool and it still detects error code 0X80070057 None of these bright ideas worked. However, when I attempted to install it stated update not for my system.
Attempts to fix the problem seems to have made the problem worse. and it fixed a couple of things but didn't fix error code 0X80070057 4. Having the same problem and pursuing similar solutions with out success, I tried downloading the recommended update for my Vista Home Premium SP2 64 bit OS.
Although my system is 64 bits the listed requirements did not specify 32 bits.
However, when I attempted to install it stated update not for my system.
Being a retired EE digital signal processor, I know the complexities of code contributed by hundreds if not thousands of SW engineers to build and maintain an OS.
I'm curious what this magic update fixed for Kelly B56 and me.
