Cannot install, all the updates been loading

Maybe you want to state what is happening in full detail.

Are the updates downloading?

Are the updates installing?

What do you mean by all the updates been loading except the junk e-mail filter?

All updates have been downloading.....
by degotak / September 13, 2007 1:15 PM PDT

and installing except the junk mail filter downloads but doesn't install. After it tries to install it fails. All the other updates like windows defender, windows vista, malicious tool, etc install properly except the junk mail filter fails every time. Tanks, Darryl.

Why not try an alternative to Windows Update....
by dab3 / September 14, 2007 10:53 AM PDT

When I was recieving errors for Windows Update... I tried this site.

It installs all windows updates VIA a Firefox plugin. You will probably experience constant lag in firefox while using the plugin so refrain from using the browser while you are installing the updates for Windows until completion.

You must have Firefox to use this however and the length of installation may take a bit longer but it worked for me.

Treid that too but no luck....

I keep getting an error code 800B0100 and when I click the get help link beside it it cannot find the error. Now here is where it started. A few months ago I was doing windows then norton 360 updates, then the norton froze and what not so did a windows system restore. Then after that the norton and windows installed fine except the junk mail filter update.
So from there it has been getting that same error code. Tried getting help from microsoft support. Tried doing it in safe mood, uninstalling norton, windows update still the same so installed norton again. They couldn't solve this.
Now I only use windows mail to send stuff, make sure I check my mail on internet explorer before I use windows mail(used to be outlook express). Darryl
