Problem updating windows vista service pack 2
I did a clean install of Windows Vista Business Service Pack 2 64bit iso on my desktop computer.
I have activated windows and passed genuine validation.
After rebooting, it immediately informed me that another 2 updates were available totaling another 5.6 MB which I'm now trying to download but so far it's 0% complete..as before. EDIT: The additional updates downloaded and installed within 15 minutes.
Marilyn has helped me before with Windows Automatic Download problems...well, I'm back, Marilyn :( Vista Service Pack 2 (KB948465) did not install yesterday morning via my Windows Automatic Download.
Microsoft Support advised me that the problem is being worked on and that a KB article will be released in due course. In either case, once Service Pack 1 is installed, Windows Update will offer some additional updates and then Service Pack 2. Note: Microsoft provides free phone support for problems installing service packs.There may also be an error 0x80190194 appearing, associated with the URL Why won't service pack 1 install properly and how do I fix it?I've let my Vista Home Premium x32 run for 36 hours on Windows Update and zero/zip/nada.

I've tried the MS "fixit" both normal and aggressive modes - no joy. see: »[WIN7] MS updates taking too long While I can't and don't know if the root cause is the same or not, I think it is not unreasonable to assume that the issue has the same root cause, and the same or comparable KBs can fix the issue.
