I have a laptop,Vista Home Premium installed, for last 2 weeks I am trying to install Windows update, it displays the following message : Vista 80070424 Windows update encountered an unknown error.

I have AVAST as Antivirus / malwarebytes and spywareblaster installed on this laptop.

When I had previously installed Spybot Search and Destroy, got Security Warning sign, from User account control, letting me know that All 4 Security features are not on, I did checked it, everything was ok. Is this spyware compatible with Vista or not, let me know please
Any helpful suggestion and advice are welcome and appreciated

If you use Spybot's Teatimer function, you need to disable it

TeaTimer works by preventing ANY changes to the system.
  • Open SpyBot Search and Destroy by going to Start -> All Programs -> Spybot Search and Destroy -> Spybot Search and Destroy.
  • If prompted with a legal dialog, accept the warning.
  • Click Posted Image and then on "Advanced Mode"

  • You may be presented with a warning dialog. If so, press Posted Image
  • Click on Posted Image
  • Click on Posted Image
  • Uncheck this checkbox:

  • Close/Exit Spybot Search and Destroy
