Hi Avast,

Since the last auto update from Avast, I am no longer able to download and install any updates from Microsoft on my PC.  Prior to the last release, I was able to download and update without a problem.  Please help me understand what has changed and how to enable installations.  My operating system is Microsoft Vista Business. 

Thank you,

Alicia

Try running this tool:

Then run Windows Update again. I've had issues with updates as well, but this method fixed it. Give it a try.
