    Updates did not configure correctly, reverting changes back____Error code 0x800f0826

    I received a computer to fix that only has the most basic version of Windows Vista installed on it meaning it does not have SP1 or 2. Whenever I try to install these updates, they install fine but when the computer reboots I get the message of "Updates did not configure correctly, reverting changes back". I looked in the event viewer and I found the error code 0x800f0826. I saw that one way to possibly fix this is to restart Windows Update but I cannot display the interface for the program. I also cannot display the control panel. I learned after doing some research that the solution for this may lie in a service pack that I cannot download. I saw an auto fix for the Windows Update problem however after running it i got the message "Updates did not configure correctly, reverting changes back". Any help in this area would be greatly helpful since I have been working on this problem for quite some time.

    Here is interesting article SLB: Fixed! Vista SP1 Error 0x800F0826 Occurs During Service Pack Installation

    Summary it:

    Go to Start>>Search>>services.msc

    find services Windows Event Collector and Windows Module Installer and change their startup type from Manual to Automatic and next restart computer

    EDIT
    additionally:

    I saw that one way to possibly fix this is to restart Windows Update but I cannot display the interface for the program. I also cannot display the control panel.
    Go to services.msc ,find SL UI Notification Service ,make sure it's set to manual and run it manually
