Things to do when your Windows machine fails to install Windows updates

Windows updates are a service provided by Microsoft to enhance the performance of a fussy operating system. The update patches will be having fixes for various common errors, exclusive system updates and a few applications to lend a helping hand to improve the overall performance of a Windows machine. Microsoft took a different approach during the development of Windows Vista by generating a different tool for Windows updates. The best thing about this is, users won’t have to use a web browser to check for available updates. But, there is a negative side too and that is, errors usually eat up the time of Vista users when they attempt to install the new update. In order to troubleshoot these issues spend some time on the instructions mould out by the Microsoft Windows Vista problems diagnosing panel.
How to fix this issue?
First of all make sure that your computer is connected to the internet and you can use the official website of Microsoft Inc to verify this.
If you have downloaded an update from the Microsoft update center earlier, just restart you machine as most of the updates will require a system restart to establish the effects of that particular update.
Make sure that you are having sufficient disk space and open the "Windows Explorer" by hitting the "Start" tab.
In Vista, startup menu will be having a search box in which you have to enter "Windows Explorer".
A user will be able to access the properties of all the drives from the "Windows Explorer" menu. Right-click on each drive to reveal the "Properties" window.
Remove some unwanted files from your drive to free up some space and access the "Programs and Features" tab from control panel.
Power up the "Windows Update" tool and hit on the "Check for Updates" tab.
Mark the required updates and tag on the "OK" tab.
If an error creeps in, try the "Try again" tab.
Now the “license terms agreement” window will come up in which you will have to click on the “Accept” tab to initiate the download of the updates marked
Now tag along the tab with the name "Restore hidden updates" and pick out the Select "Restore" tab.
Restart you machine as per the recommendation of Vista problems diagnosing center to load up the new settings.
With these instructions you should have no trouble in installing the updates from Microsoft.
