    Hi All,



    I have a Lenovo X61 Tablet with Visa Business (32-bit). After a system restore, everything is working fine (after some reinstalls), apart from Windows Vista itself. For starters, Update does not work - I double click on it, a window flashes and then vanishes (no sign appears in the window). Then there are more troubling signs: I cannot get into User Account Control to turn it off and off, for instance; right click on the main desktop, go down to sort by... and I have a blank set of options rather than the usual choices).



    Does anyone have any idea how I can get Windows Update working again?



    cheers,



    L.

    Go into our General Technical forum and read the pinned post on repairing Windows Update. That would be a start.

    Thanks for the link WAW8, I tried that, but was told the file I was supposed to delete could not be found, and the Windows Update available for manual install was not necessary as Windows Update was already installed. Any idea what I should try next?



    cheers,
