Windows Updates on newly installed Vista
I had to restore my laptop to factory condition. After doing all that Vista's Windows update is telling me I have 87 updates dating back to 2007, most of them security updates. I let it do its thing twice and both times it froze on the Welcome screen after about a half hour of updating. Thats as far as it would go and I had to restore it to factory condition both times. I was doing the updates with Wi-fi so I thought maybe my signal was dropping (which it sometimes does). So I plug in my ethernet cable and now I'm going to try it again. My question is, do I need to download all those security updates or can I just select the latest ones?
I believe if you install SP2 it will include most of these updates. You can download SP2 and install it without using Windows Update

Yes he will have some newer updates. But I just recently redid my workstation computer and after loading Sp2, the updates were minimal and did not take long at all. Now if they would just release SP3....oh wait, sorry, it's called Windows 7 :laugh2:
