Can anyone explain what's going on? Also, ReadyBoost returns to 'disabled' each time I check the box in the driver interface. On the latter, does a USB drive need to be plugged in in order for it to ever stay on a setting of...

I am running Vista 32-bit. I have an HP Officejet 6110xi. When I run Windows update, there is an update for Officejet 6100. However, this update never installs properly.
