Three updates won't install on Windows Vista

    Hi,

    It had to happen sooner or later in Vista also: Updates that won't
    install. Suddenly three updates KB942615, KB942624 and KB942763 can't
    be installed. I have tried several times. This is the error message I
    keep getting from Windows Update:

    Failed 3 updates
    Error(s) found:
    Code 800B0100

    I have been doing some poking around and found that it seems to have to
    do with certificates and security, but I have not been able to find out
    how to fix it. I have tried more "generic" solutions to update problems
    like renaming the repository and software distribution folders. No go.
    The error message changes when I do that, but the next time I'm back to
    the 800B0100 one again.

    Since MS offer free support for Vista users I will try that also, but I
    have a feeling I'm more likely to get help in here.

    Some of the updates refused to download and install for me, too,
    until I turned off my anti-virus program and software firewall.
    FYI, I use the ZoneAlarm Security Suite, and have to disable it for
    some MS updates. HTH

    I tried to disable firewall and anti-virus/spyware (both Webroot
    product), but that didn't help. Thank you anyway for the suggestion.
