Problems updating vista sp1
Today, you can update your Vista SP1 to SP2 easily by doing a small trick. As SP2 is in pre-beta stage, it’s a good practice to create a restore point or back up to avoid future problems.
I have been having the same problem with Windows update with Windows 7 since March 2016. I tried everything I could find on the internet to fix the problem. Those instructions assume that the SP1 service pack for Win 7 is already installed on your system. This might indicate that a problem occurred during your factory reset, but try Dalai's suggested workaround and see if the warning clears itself once you are able to run Windows Update again and patch your system.By First update, I meant the first update on the list KB3177725.The changes I made to the TCP/IP settings, I went ahead and reverted them back to Automatically obtain address and windows updates is still working properly.I tried Dalai's webpage at and it would not complete due to appidsvc service failed to stop.I tried installing updates with the stand alone installer and it would only install the first update all other updates said they were not require for my computer.
Unfortunately, Dalaia's workaround is only a temporary solution and you will likely see your "." hang and high CPU consumption return next month when another batch of security updates is released for the September 2016 Patch Tuesday updates on 13-Sep-2016 (the second Tuesday of the month).
