I was wondering if DAF works with Windows Vista. I can''t install some Windows Update. I purchase an eMachine a few months ago and everything was updating okay...for awhile. Now, I basically ignore the update (or Red Icon next to the lock Icon) upon shutdown. It seems fickle. When I boot up the Icon appear grey and happy -but other times it turns red. It might be red when I boot up - I've become somewhat jaded : (

Open Task Manager (control+shift+escape), go to the Processes tab and click "Show processes for all users" which will elevate Task Manager to admin. Then click File > New Task (Run)... and type CMD in the box and hit OK.

Close task manager. From the elevated command prompt type all of the following:

net stop cryptsvc
net stop bits
net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 cryptdlg
regsvr32 cryptui
regsvr32 cryptext
regsvr32 dssenh
regsvr32 mssign32
regsvr32 mssip32
regsvr32 scecli
regsvr32 softpub
regsvr32 rsaenh
regsvr32 winhttp
regsvr32 wintrust
regsvr32 licmgr10
regsvr32 wucltux
regsvr32 wuapi
regsvr32 wups
regsvr32 wups2
regsvr32 wuwebv
rmdir /s /q %systemroot%\system32\softwaredistribution
net start cryptsvc
net start bits
net start wuauserv

Then try Windows Update again.

Dial-a-fix will not be ready for Vista for several more months.
