Hi, On 9-4-2007 I wrote in the windows update about KB938194 not installing and Mow Green wrote about Windows calendar folder being deleted...To my knowledge I have never deleted a calendar and would like to know the steps to find out how to add this folder as I am not familar with windows vista at all. I have Vista 32 bit and this update says it has installed sucessfully once and failed 7 times, and of course every time I turn on the computer there it is ready to be installed again. I have turned off all security and firewall and anti-virus but it still wont install. Getting to be a pain because it constantly wants to reboot after saying it was installed and then says it failed. So I guess I am asking for a step by step guide to do what Mow has suggested.....Where is the task scheduler??? Sorry to be illerate on this. I have included the windows discussion below. Thanks for any help you can give. Dusty




See the following for an explanation of why the update is reoffered:

Vista KB938194 Appears To Install And Is Then Reoffered

Workaround:

Open Task Scheduler, and in the Windows folder
add a WindowsCalendar folder.
No task has to be assigned, just create the WindowsCalendar folder.
Install KB938194 now.

Moral of the story: Don't delete any folders in the Windows folder of
Scheduled Tasks. <w>

Thank you Jaycee for your response really appreciate it. Well I tried to manually download this update and that did not work...I also went to the google post and did step by step to clear the data out but nothing seems to work. I did a disc check and fix error run and that did not work so I finally choose to hide this update until I can see what the next ones do...Don't know what else to do, really at a loss of why this is not going in. I did download a drive update from Nvidia at windows (which I did read somewhere that you should never download drivers from windows update but go to the manufacture and get them ) so was wondering if this may have caused a problem ?? Or was what I read not true ? Anyway thank you for the help and have a great week. Dusty
