yeah but it says ''checking for latest updates''....How I stop that?

Assuming you have SP2 and Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.256, it sounds like an old familiar issue is back!? (But Windows Update isn’t supposed to work anymore!?) Set Windows Update to “Never check for updates,” click OK and restart. Then manually install KB4015195, KB4015380, KB4012583 and KB3205638 either from Microsoft Update Catalog or greenhillmaniac’s repository. There is a YouTube video by WinClient5270 with download links in the description:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtGYgxfpkeg

(Minor detail: If IE9 is already installed, I would nowadays suggest KB4507434 rather than the older patch mentioned in the video.)

Act fast because M$ may shut it down again, and let’s try not to turn this into a “How to Update Vista” thread please.

Edit: False alarm. :blushing:

Oops! I failed to realize that “it” was Steam, due partly to another recent post. :blushing:

Yes because it says ''Steam is no longer supported on your Operating system Version'' over and over again.....

you need a hex editor to remove the win7 requirement and need the cfg file to prevent it from updating.

You can use an hex editor like HxD. Search for a sequence of bytes that goes

6A 00 6A 01 6A 06

And change the 6A 01 to 6A 00.

Change those bytes for steam.exe, steam.dll, and steamservice.dll

That's weird. The premodded october build of Steam never checked for updates and I never had to configure anything. The thread I linked to did mention what you need to add to the Steam.cfg file though. It goes to the Steam folder.
