SECTION #1

Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
Windows Vista, but only for Service Pack 2 (SP2). This support for Windows
Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2) is valid until November 26, 2009. Availability
of
chat or e-mail support differs depending on your geographic location. Go
to
http://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?prid=13014&gprid=582034 &
select appropriate category (e.g., Installation).

Generally, these errors can occur if the system files are corrupted.

To make clear the current situation, I recommend downloading Windows Vista
Service Pack 2] in Normal Mode and installing it in Clean Boot Mode.
Please
follow the steps below.

Note: This SP2 installation can be affected by certain third party
programs
running in the background. If you are running any third party applications
such as Spyblocker, Internet or web accelerators (programs designed to
boost
the speed of the Internet connection), security or anti-virus programs
(McAfee, Norton, etc.), I recommend we temporarily disable or shut them
down
during our troubleshooting process. Please be sure to enable them again
when
the update process has been completed.

Step 1: Download Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Standalone Installer
===================================================
1. Download Windows Vista SP2 from the link below according to your System
Type:

...Windows Vista Service Pack 2 - Five Language Standalone for x32-based
systems (Size: 348.3 MB)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...FamilyID=a4dd31d5-f907-4406-9012-a5c3199ea2b3

...Windows Vista Service Pack 2 - Five Language Standalone for x64-based
systems (Size: 577.4MB)
http://download.microsoft.com/downl...c1f58727b8b/Windows6.0-KB936330-X64-wave0.exe

2. Save the download to your desktop, do not Run it!

Step 2: Install Windows Vista SP2 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" and click "OK".

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. Go ahead and reboot
your
system when prompted as you are exiting MsConfig.

4. After rebooting, right-click on the downloaded Windows Vista Service
Pack
2 Standalone Installer, select "Run as Administrator" (if necessary) and
follow the instructions to install Windows Vista SP2.

To restore the computer to use a Normal Startup, repeat step 1 above. Then
click "Normal Startup" on the General tab, click "OK", and then restart
the
computer.

Running Vista Ultimate and have new updates to install SP1 here. I already
d/loaded SP1 / SP 2 manually so am asking this; which is better to do; let
the update automatically install or do it like above?
Don't want to mess anything up with the installation of SP1 / SP2.

Thanks for your help

God Bless... :)

Like you. I always download SPs to my Desktop and install from there handing
your pc over entirely to the installation.

You must shut down all activity, including and especially firewall and virus
scanner - even if this means temporarily uninstalling them - and even
screensaver and power management options. Run any reliable registry cleaner
(I use Registry Mechanic) so you're up to date in that area, and I suggest,
but it's probably not really needed, run defrag.

When all is ready, install SP1 first. This is vital as SP2 will not install
without it. This can take between 20 minutes and 60 minutes, depending on
your pc's spec.

When it's done check all is okay with your favourite programmes and you are
happy. (Leaving things for a day or two might be a good idea but a lot more
work). Then, as with SP1, having made absolutely certain all unessential
startup programmes have been closed, proceed to install SP2. This is a
monster update of nearly 400Mb for 32 bit and nearly 600Mb for 64 bit. This
took me 50 minutes (32 bit) including the prep work, but it could take as
long as two hours.

All in all, the most important element is preperation. The slightest
intrusion while installing either SP can cause mayhem later.

You can uninstall SP2 if it does go belly-up but in my experience, once
uninstalled, it will not go back any better so getting it right first time
is pretty well vital.

Good luck.

I would download the ISO images and burn them to disk. That way you'll
always have an install disk and not have to download again if Windows goes
south for any reason. I did this for SP2 and it installed just fine from the
disk.

I found the SP2 ISO but is there an ISO for SP1 or is it just the .exe
download?

Don't want to mess anything up with the installation of SP1 / SP2.

Without trying to be contrary but merely informative, I downloaded and
installed 'all' of my Windows Updates from the server and did not have to
disable or uninstall anything on my Vista H/P 32 bit system.
And I have next to the native Firewall and Defender Avast, Spybot S&D,
SpywareBlaster and Malwarebytes running.
The only thing one must be careful of is not to download and install an
entire heap of updates, especially when it comes to SP's and IE's which must
be treated singularly and exactly according to instructions during the
process.
Hopefully this helps.

Harry.

Parrot, I'm not sure, but Vista SP2 probably incorporates SP1 as well, much
like XP. You probably only need the SP2 ISO.

You have a driver or piece of hardware that is supposedly incompatible. You
could go to the downloads page and manually download/install it if you are
feeling lucky.
