Hi, guys I am new here.

I have a laptop with windows Vista and I did not realize that windows vista is not supported anymore until now, when I restored the laptop back to 2008 as I thought the laptop would work better.

I am trying to download the last windows vista updates but I only get errors, 0xc8000247, code 80072EFE etc.

I cannot even install my antivirus

I am quite desperate guys.. I like my vista and would like to stay on this windows version.

I am pretty dumb for these things being honest, anyone can help?

Thank you, have a lovely day

Windows update is notoriously broken on vista, until you install certain updates.
Get them all with this tool:

use the ESR version, the download link is sort of hidden, click the version number.

And here is easy instructions to use it:

also run windows update afterwards to get any missed ones. then tell it to never check for updates, there will be none, and it is known to sometimes consume all CPU cycles at random times if left on
