Windows Update Failing 186 Updates

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just installed Vista Home Premium 32 bit on my new rig (see sig rig). I've been spending a few hours trying to get all my updates installed. Here's the problem. There are 186 updates that wont install (I got this number by counting the number of failed udates in the update history, so this number might be counting the same update failed multiple times, I'm not sure). So far, all that's been installed on the HDD is the OS and the drivers for the GPU, printer, integrated sound, and network drivers. Anyone have any ideas?

EDIT: Could the poorly written 8.12 ATI drivers be causing any problems? See this thread: http://www.overclock.net/ati/426780-i-hate-ccc.html

Try validating windows if you have not done so already.
