    Vista Home Premium x32bit; SP2 & boot failed

    You know, when an update tells you not to shutdown the computer... Don't shutdown the computer. Just yesterday (November 23 2009) the update manager was getting on my nerves to update my SP1 to SP2, so I allowed it.. Well, I was impatient and decided to let it all configure tomorrow but when I turned on my computer I was hit with an error message on Boot plus it won't continue to my Desktop nor will it boot in Safe Mode.

    I don't quite remember what the error said but the first number-code was !! 0xc0000034 !!.
    I had tried looking for help but everything I found, hadn't helped one bit. Currently I'm trying to get a System Restore from the CD-DVD to restore before I installed SP2, but it's just hanging at "Finalizing File Restore."
    At this stage, I'm a little desperate, but I'm trying not to Reformat my Vista seeing how I have no way of getting my files off the HDD. Otherwise any help is appreciated.
