...Sorry, I didn't realize VolumeZ didn't update his list of MS Office "speed up" patches in peggybegg's thread why has vista stopped automatic updates? in March 2018.  VolumeZ can confirm if this list is correct, but here are download links for the latest MS Office 2007 and MS Office Compatibility Pack SP3 security updates that should help speed up Windows Update:

 

Hi lycogan56:

Just a heads up that today is the April 2018 Patch Tuesday (the second Tuesday of the month) and there are four new "speed up" patches that you will likely have to install to get Window Update working again this month (see links below).  You're going to have to install new "speed up" patches every month as long as MS continues to release security updates for your MS Office 2007 and/or MS Office Compatibility Pack SP3.  That might not be much longer, since MS Office 2007 was supposed to reach end of support back in October 2017 (see the 2017 MS support article <here>) and the MS Office Compatibility Pack SP3 support is scheduled to end this month (see the 2018 AskWoody.com article <here>).

One of the forum admins in the Microsoft Answers forum finally unlocked peggybegg's thread why has vista stopped automatic updates? so I'm hoping Volume Z will be able to revise his list of "speed up" patches in that thread today or tomorrow once he's had a chance to test them on his own Vista SP2 virtual machine.

 

Be sure to post back if you see any more failed updates after your required April 2018 speed up patches are installed and you've run a manual Windows Update.

In the mean time, here are the new Windows Update "speed up" patches for MS Office 2007 and the MS Office Compatibility Pack for today's April 2018 Patch Tuesday:

I did the search and had four returns when I search for KB4014 in my control panel, programs, program features, and installed updates.

 

The four are KB4014652, KB4014793, KB4014794, and KB4014561.

 

Since it is patch Tuesday I will continue on with the recommended patches you sent today.

Hi lycogan56,

 

an automatic search for MS Office updates is required nonetheless. You now have only this month's worth of updates installed that would trigger the update search issue if applicable while searching.

 

Also, thanks to lmacri for helping to unlock my reply at answers.microsoft.com.   :)

I think I am all set.  My machine updated.  Do you think I should check anything else? 

 

Hi lycogan56:

Further to your 06-Apr-2018 post, once you have Windows Update working again and a manual Windows Update [Windows Update | Check for Updates] reports that there are no further updates available for your Vista SP2 machine, go ahead and install the emergency out-of-band security updates were released for Vista SP2 in June 2017 to patch vulnerabilities for the NSA-leaked exploits EnglishmanDentist, EsteemAudit and ExplodingCan (see More Shadow Brokers Exploits Patched June 2017 for Win XP and Vista). These out-of-band updates were not delivered to Vista SP2 machines via Windows Update after extended support ended on 11-Apr-2017 so standalone .msu installers must be downloaded and installed manually.

You mentioned in post # 21 that you already installed KB4018271 (Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9: May 9, 2017) so you should only have to install the four remaining KB4018466, KB4021903, KB4019204 and KB4024402 security updates mentioned in that MS Answers thread.
