    You probably don’t have Service Pack 1 installed on your computer.

    Click Start > Control Panel> Security

    Under “Windows Updates, click on ‘Check for Updates’ .

    Download and install all Important Updates. Also, make sure that automatic updates is turned on.

    Note that if you’re using a pirated copy of Windows Vista, windows update may not work correctly. You’ll need to purchase a legitimate license for Windows.
