Do I actually need vista windows Service Pack 2

  prince midas 11:20 06 Jun 09

I have tried various times to install vista windows service pack2 without any success and I now have dozens of files which are zero size which are so long in name that windows says to remove them you will have to rename to a smaller length which really bugs me. Why does microsoft not make things easier for us.

Do I really need this update,what does it do,and can I live without it.

click here and download and burn the ISO image to a disc. This is a stand alone installation package which will install and then remove all temporary files in it`s wake. I suggest you disconnect from the internet and turn of firewalls and AV software whilst you install the package.

I would say go for it.

I always install Service Packs.

run chkdsk then try defrag the hdd,after running ccleaner download to desktop. disable AV and install remember to turn AV on afterwards.

If this does not work you may have a missing or corrupt dll that the update is looking for therefore try running SFC/ SCANNOW with the widows disc in the drive.
