I read in your column that Windows 7 isn’t updating properly (see tinyurl.com/zzhdlyf). Do you know why I can’t update my PC’s Windows Vista 64-bit operating system?

I’d like to update my PC before Microsoft stops supporting Windows Vista this April. But I haven’t received an update since mid-July of last year, and the software last checked for updates in early August.
