widows update stopped working RRS feed

  • Question

  • My operating system is Windows Vista Ultimate.  Windows update will download new files and try to load on the computer.  But for some reason the computer stopped updating as of 5/11/08.    The general error code 8000FFFF showed turning off LiveOne firewall and try again.  The downloads all failed.  Since then Windows update has failed over 120 times trying to install these updates.  Now I am getting worried my computer is becoming volnerable!

     

    What next?

  • I'll add to Jim's post - your Windows Update problem is not likely to be caused by OneCare as Windows Update is not only allowed through the OC firewall, using Automatic Updates is a requirement of OneCare.
