I've attempted to download/install this KB941649 "important update" that appears in the Microsoft alert on this machine.
The installation proceeds as expected.
Then I am prompted to restart the computer.
When restarted there is an extended period of time during which I see the "Configuring Updates" notification.
Then Windows Vista Home Basic goes to "Shutting Down" and hangs there for a couple of minutes before initiating the re-boot sequence .
During the re-boot, I get a Please Wait for less than 1 minute, and then "Configuring updates..." for another couple of minutes. Then Vista shuts down a third time, before rebooting to the Vista login screen.
Again, I get the "Please Wait" and "Configuring updates..." alerts before getting to Login Screen.
Upon logging in I get the "Important Update" icon in the notification area of the try again.
It shows "Update fore Windows Vista (KB941649)" and if I select the download, the entire process repeats.
In View Update History, I have multiple instances of "failed" for KB941649 update (recommended).
In View Update History, I have (2) two instances of "Successful" for KB941649 update (Important).
I continue to be prompted to download the KB941649 update.
What I've tried:
I moved the entire contents of C:\Windows\Software Distribution\Download\ To a temporary Folder.
Upon attempting the KB641649 update, it repopulates the C:\Windows\Software Distribution\Download\ with this update's downloaded files.
I've Run IE as Administrator and gone through the above.... same result.
I've successfully Registered from cmd line Regsvr32 wmiutils.dll
I've used the following to Run the cmd Regsvr32 as Administrator
Click Start > type cmd in the Start Search box > right-click cmd in the
Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.
I've gone to MS to download KB941649 with the Standalone Installer, completing the Validation - Download - Save - Open ----- initiates the above sequence again.
The following files are available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:

Anybody else have this difficulty?
Anything else I should try?
