I have a Dell Laptop Inspiron 1521 With Vista.

 

I have been updating service packs from Microsoft, 

 

At a point it wants me to upgrade to Internet Explorere 8..

 

I get the message that IE 8 is not compatable with this operating system, ANY IDEAS..?

 

Well hold off on your comments for now, Been updating all day click and wait, when I thought it was done because at times it said it had no more updates.

 

101 more updates just showed up...

Some updates cannot be installed...until others are, there is a type of priority.

 

Just keep going back to Windows Updates until there are no more critical updates requiring install :).

Glad you resolved it, we don't normally close topics, preferring to keep them open.

 

Happy computing :).
