Default Updating problem

SO my laptop is like 2 years old now and i have had to reinstall my OS on it not that long ago. Im running Vista 32bit and now its really slow and it barely updates anything important. I think it may give me like 1 complete update. The other times it just says the update failed. Im thinking of putting the windows XP on it or just turn off the updates. Any idea of why it wont update?

Default Re: Updating problem

Was it always like this or has it got like this recently? If so, was it sudden (after you made a change or it just appeared) or more gradual over a period of time?

Also, do other applications that use the internet appear to work ok? And could you give us the error code that you get when it fails?
