I have a Acer Aspire 5570 running Vista Home 32-bit and after a month and a bit, 1st e-mail dating April 7, 2008 , of e-mails back and forward to Microsoft Windows Vista Support I still can't get SP1 to install on my computer. I am getting overly tired of e-mailing back and forward with MS support people and making no progress at all. I was hoping that someone out there could help me out. I will list below the error info I get when I try to install and what the support people have told me to do, which was always unsuccessful.
