    HI All

    I had to buy a new laptop begining of last month and it cam with Vista Home Basic installed, this did not really bother me but i have now spent the last week or so trying to get windows update to work but it keeps failing.

    when i open windows updater it searches for the required updates and gives me the list, when i press i tell it to install the update it fails, it does not download it at all.

    I have turned off my firewall, my anti virus and still nothing happens.

    when it fails it gives me an error code which is 80246008, when i press the get help link and select the error code it gives me a list of possible things and how to sort them, 1 of which is that "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" needs to be turned on in 'services' but when i tell it to start it says that it can not be started and says "error 2 the system can not find the file specified"

    does anybody have any ideas?

    cheers in advance :)
