    Hello,

    Windows update (Vista sp2) does not respond correctly anymore.

    So, I have a window with no informations about the updates and no possibility of downloading.

    Do you have any idea that can help to resolve this ?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the answer. You have reason, it is related to services.msc, but there Win. update was activated.

    So the following procedure must be followed :

    - Via services.msc, stop windows update

    - Go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore and delete the files

    - Then start windows update again.
