I have installed the Chipset driver then the webcam and broadcom drivers, not seeing a Display driver on dell's page here:

 

https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/xps-one/drivers

 

It's the Vista 32 bit.

 

Would take a lot of effort to find each driver with Device ID's

Is this Vista SP2 with all updates installed? Is this IE 11? For drivers in this situation I would download Snappy driver installer. It's open source. Use the lite version which downloads an index file first to find drivers.

Yes SP2 but the windows updates "could not search for new updates" with error code 80072F8F.

 

I will try Snappy driver now, thanks. Is it possible to run win 7 or 10 on this machine even though there are no drivers for it on dell's page?

You need to download a couple of updates manually first before you will get updates. Maybe a Servicing Stack and Rollup but I'm not sure. There is a thread in the Vista Forum. BC member ImarcI keeps tabs on this thread. You may want to post here.

Seems like I will need to manually do those 2 the video and broadcom when Snappy is finished:

 

 
but main issue now is how to get rid of the security errors?

Certificate errors can be due to an out of date browser or the Time being wrong. Other than those I don't know what would cause the certificate errors.

 

The Standard VGA driver is Microsoft's own native driver. You will need to find the GPU model and download the driver from their website. The broadcom driver could be a problem. Find the Vendor and Device ID then do a Google search. DriverIdentifier may have the driver.

The updates finished and no more security errors, thank you very much. I am not sure if it was the updates which fixed this issue or when I now checked, the time was correct but not the date [2007] so I adjusted it. At any rate there is only one driver showing as missing [don;t know what it is for] but since everything else seems to be working fine, guess I should not bother?

and this last issue, any way I can remove that Google chrome update error showing at the top of the browser please?

You can't remove that warning as far as I know. You should leave it for the client and I would tell them to forget about doing any online shopping or banking on the computer. There is a way to update using Windows Server 2008 updates but that is in another thread. 

 

What is the Vendor and Device ID on the unknown device?

I am not seeing a "device ID" in the driver properties, only a Hardware ID

Right click the device, select properties, under the details tab select hardware ids. What is the first line? It only shows a hardware ID and nothing else?

Hi mystic12:

 

Further to JonhC_21's comment, I've also posted a FAQ in the VistaForums at How to Fix Vista SP2 "Checking for Updates..." Hangs and Slow Windows Updates that includes an overview of the problem. As noted in that FAQ "Users who perform a clean re-install of their Vista OS will encounter these 'Checking for updates...' hangs as soon as Service Pack 2 (SP2) is applied."

 

If you've applied SP1 (released 04-Feb-2008) and SP2 (released 25-May-2009) then you might still have IE 7 or IE8, since IE9 was not released until 14-Mar-2011.  If Windows Update has somehow managed to upgrade you to IE9 since SP2 was applied, open iE9 and go to Help | About Internet Explorer and let me know if you have Update Versions 9.0.60 (KB4014661) as shown below.  KB4014661 (Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9: April 11, 2017) is the last IE9 update delivered by Windows Update before extended support for Vista SP2 in ended on 11-Apr-2017, and if your IE9 browser has a lower Update Version (KB number) that should give us an idea of the last time Windows Update ran to completion on your system.

 

Attached File  IE9 Version KB4014661 April 2017.png   17.66KB   0 downloads

 

Also note that Google ended support for Chrome on the Win XP and Vista SP2 platforms in April 2016. See my comments in pcpunks' thread Most Popular Browser For Vista.
