What do you mean by what problems are outstanding? What should I run to find out?

I haven't been doing anything on the computer during this process, so I'm not sure what problems it may still have.

Incidentally, back in December of 2011, the Windows Vista Service Pack 2 for x64 based systems update would never successfully run for me. Should I try this update now or wait to see what other problems may occur?

Thank you for your help so far, I was very happy to see my desktop load and stick around without rebooting!
