Whenever I downloaded IE9 to update manually, it tells me that it can't be installed because of the SP2 pack...I tried updating that but no good.
If you go to Control Panel | System and Maintenance | System and can confirm that Service Pack 2 is installed, it still might be worth running through the instructions on page 1 of m#l's thread Updates not working, it has been searching for updates for hours to ensure the four critical updates listed in STEP # 2 [KB3205638 (rel. 13-Dec-2016); KB4012583 (rel. 14-Mar-2017); KB4015195 (rel. 11-Apr-2017); KB4015380 (rel. 11-Apr-2017)] are installed on your system and that Windows Update is working correctly. If any of those security updates are missing then your Vista SP2 OS might not be fully patched.

If you still need Service Pack 2, download links for both 32-bit and 64-bit Vista SP2 are posted in Brink's thread Download Available for Standalone Vista SP2 in the VistaForums.
Oh, by the way...the only AOL file left is on IE7 and it's being used as the Search Block and that well may be the source of my error..."all" of the AOL files/folders I've uninstalled via Revo Uninstaller or by deleting files manually but I still can't change the Search Block to Google or anything else.
I've never used AOL but the AOL support article Manually Delete AOL Folders in Windows 10/8/7/Vista might be helpful if you need to clean the last remnants of AOL off your system.
