have Vista home premium and windows update is red and when I try to update it comes up with error 80070424
Checked forums online but nothing helps, just comes up with another error
anyone having trouble with this and any clues as to fix without reinstall back to factory settings

Try this (http://www.vistaheads.com/forums/microsoft-public-windowsupdate/181814-re-error-80070424-windows-update-vista.html)

Open an *Elevated* Command Prompt by right clicking cmd and choosing

'Run as administrator', stop the WU Service, and then register these files pressing Enter after each command

NOTE: The net stop command may not be applicable in Vista. If so, then do this first:

To stop the Windows Update service

net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 wucltux.dll
regsvr32 wudriver.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuwebv.dll
net start wuauserv

Then reboot then try again
