Start menu not updating vista
First click the "more info [for other microsoft products]" link when you open "check for updates" in Windows updates.
Then add compatibility mode in IE11 for and reboot.
How do I get this machine to switch to Microsoft Update? The latest version of the Windows Update Agent for Windows 8 is 7.8.9200.16693.
Try to update Windows Update agent as documented here: 2. The latest version of the Windows Update Agent for Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP is 7.6.7600.256. The suggestion to install Silverlight and have the box checked at the end of the install process to "Update Silverlight and other Microsoft products" that is suggested in the link 'I cannot enable Microsoft Update in Windows 7' from Joe P517 did the job. FYI to anyone else with this issue: I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office 2013, but that did not work either.
Doing so brings up a menu similar to the one displayed below.
Click the down arrow for the drop-down list, select Restart, and click OK.
Thanks Joe I know that this is an old thread, but the direct answer is missing.
Here it is (borrowed from a post on sevenforums.com): The unhelpful screen you get that tells you to use the start menu to check for updates is caused by the need to configure IE compatibility mode for in IE 11 to reach the correct page that will enable the "other Microsoft updates" function.
The Microsoft Update checkbox is also missing from the 'Change Settings' page in Windows Update.
Windows 8 and 8.1 Neither of these versions of Windows has the Start Menu.
However, with the 8.1 update, Microsoft added the power options button to the upper right-hand corner of the Start screen that allows users to restart their computer quickly.
First proper answer I read on a forum about this topic in ages !
To complete, you can add compatibility mode for website from IE menu (Compatibility View Settings) I know that this is an old thread, but the direct answer is missing.
