Note: Microsoft provides free phone support for problems installing service packs.After rebooting, it immediately informed me that another 2 updates were available totaling another 5.6 MB which I'm now trying to download but so far it's 0% complete..as before.

It seems that Microsoft has cut back on support of Vista. But when the virus tables are 6 days old, it updates quickly.
Win 7 updates are also slower than they should be, but not as slow as Vista. I haven't tried doing anything with Sept updates yet. I had mine "automatic" (no joy), then "check but let me decide to download and install"; then back to "automatic".
