Windows plug-in validation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to download a Vista update that will fix some problems in Windows Explorer.  I have a licensed copy of Vista Ultimate that I purchased when I upgraded my Vaio.  My automatic updates work fine.  When I try to download this one update manually, however, I get into two problems.  I can't get the plugin to download.  This exact problem was described here in an earlier thread that was marked "resolved," but in fact there was no resolution given.  Second, I get an error message saying the browser cannot find "download.microsoft.com."  This is driving me nuts!  Does anyone have a solution?
