    I'm running Windows Vista Home Basic for several years and I have always downloaded Windows updates with no problem until recently when i was trying to install for Office 2007 software. I get a 646 error code with these updates failing all the time. Will someone please give me some advice on what I do to cure this?

    RayTheBear,
    Thank you for sending these help suggestions! The suggestion of the entry change in the regedit did the trick! You are "the Man" from a user in Tennessee.

    Thanks again,
