If unsuccessful above, try this work around:

Step 1

Please download and run Reset Windows Update Tool from the link below:

http://go.microsoft....?linkid=9665683

2. Please download and run System Update Readiness Tool from the link below according to the System Type:

System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista 32-bit

http://www.microsoft...&DisplayLang=en

System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista 64-bit

http://www.microsoft...&DisplayLang=en

3. Restart the computer and install Windows Vista SP1. Let’s reinstall SP1 standalone installer in Clean Boot.
For your reference, I have attached these steps as below:

Step 2:

Download Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Standalone Installer
====================================================
1. Download Windows Vista SP1 from the link below according to the System Type:

Windows Vista Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista 32-bit (Size: 544.3MB)

http://www.microsoft...&DisplayLang=en

Windows Vista Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista 64-bit (Size: 873.0MB)

http://www.microsoft...&DisplayLang=en

2. Please save it on the Desktop.

Step 3:

Install Windows Vista SP1 in Clean Boot Mode
=========================================
Please disable all startup items and third party services when booting to avoid conflict when installing Vista SP1.:

1. Click "Start", type: MSCONFIG in the search box and press Enter.

Note: Please click "Continue" if the "User Account Control" window pops up.

2. Click "Services", check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).
3. Click "Startup", click "Disable All", click "OK" and restart the computer.

Note: Temporarily disabling the Startup Group only prevents the startup programs from loading at startup. This shouldn't affect the system or other programs. We can manually run these programs later.

4. Please double click the downloaded Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Standalone Installer and follow the instructions to install Windows Vista SP1.

Note:

To restore the computer to use a Normal Startup, repeat step 3 above. Then click "Normal Startup" on the General tab, click "OK", and then restart the computer.

Keep me posted.

Problem with ICE:
SP-1 is installing, it does regularly - then it uninstalls for no reason - same with SP-2.
So far so good...should I try to install ICE after SP_! or are you going to install SP_2 as well...

Please download Farbar Service Scanner and run it on the computer with the issue.
  • Make sure the following options are checked:
    • Internet Services
    • Windows Firewall
    • System Restore
    • Security Center
    • Windows Update
  • Press "Scan".
  • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
  • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

Open an Administrator Command prompt. At the prompt, copy and paste the following and press Enter

SFC /ScanNow

Type Exit and press Enter to return to Windows.

Please let me know the outcome.

Please download Farbar Service Scanner and run it on the computer with the issue.
  • Make sure the following options are checked:
    • Internet Services
    • Windows Firewall
    • System Restore
    • Security Center
    • Windows Update
  • Press "Scan".
  • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
  • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

Download CKScanner from here: http://downloads.mal...m/CKScanner.exe

Important - Save it to your desktop.


  • Doubleclick CKScanner.exe (Right click and "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7).
  • Give permission if necessary, and click Search For Files.
  • After a very short time, when the cursor hourglass disappears, click Save List To File.
  • A message box will verify the file saved. Please run the program once only.
  • Double-click the CKFiles.txt icon on your desktop and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
