Vista Service Pack KB936330 & System Update Readiness Tool KB947821 - Failed to Install

    Can anyone help me with this please? My PC has been trying since Sept to install these but it keeps failing.

    I thought I read somewhere that for it to succesfully install, I have to disable my Norton Internet Security - is this right? If so can someone advise how I go about temporarily disbaling this and then re enable it?

    It may not be your AV that is causing the problem, but to shut it down you probably have to go to the icons on the bottom right of your task bar.

    Find the icon for Norton, right click on it, then select Shutdown or similar (I dont have it installed so cannot be certain of the text).

    If that still does not fix it then you may have a problem with your System Updates, I have had this go wrong a few times.

    What actually goes wrong ?

    See if you get any error messages or error text in your System update window and make a note of them.
