    The problem at the moment is SP1, Windows Vista users who have SP1 installed are experiencing issues with updates that will not configure correctly,and experience reverting changes error messages. You will notice after installation, and at boot-up that a registry script runs before windows boots to desktop, Microsoft have apparently released 2 fixes that were to have fixed this issue,however both will not install on systems running SP1.

    The only guaranteed way to fix this the problem, reinstall a fresh copy of Vista, (Use upgrade option to keep your files etc.) turn Automatic updates to download and let me choose when to install, And download the Standalone Vista SP2 service pack and install. Keep updates non automatic untill there are no more to install, and only choose to install a maximum of no more that 5 at a time if the updates are Optional, such as Ultimate extras etc. after which you can go back to Automatic. : Problem should be solved>
