  1. I'm on a friends Vista Home Premium & noticed there are numerous MS updates that never got installed. Some are shown here;

    Install them or forget them? When I run the updater,it says no updates are available.

    Is it a pretty fresh install? I've seen some fail when updating a new system because other updates trump others (include same thing, or an update). I've never seen that many fail though so that may not be the problem here.

    No,its not a fresh install. I just found out about it yesterday but I've known the guy for about 18 months. I've been in here before cleaning it but never looked into it this far. Thanks for your help.

    Ok, I just returned it to the owner & told him so I will give it a shot later & post back either way, thank you.

    Four & a half months later, I finally tried the fix & it told me there were no missing MS updates. Thanks for the help. :)
