    Since installing SPK2 on Vista home premium andonce all updates and services packs are in I have encountered update problems that become apparent about1 week later.Prevoiusly I re-installed everything twice before I realized that if I turned off Windows Defender and then disable it in the services and rebootthe PC I am then able to ask windows to install the available updates without any failures. This does not appear to be a software firewall problem however I will point out that if I bypass my switch and linksys (with default settings) router and run a connection directly from my cable modem to my PC I am able to get some of the critcal updates. The hdd has is a SCSI and has been tested. The account is a member of the administrators group.

    Does anyone have any idea what could be happening
