Have you tried rolling back to a previous restore point?

The problem is , this things in my face when i switch off "Configuring
updates do not switch off computer" then when i switch on "Installing sp1 3
of 3 0% " But it's not done it's "Pending" it just goes on and on in a
vicious circle. And dont forget my poor old CPU'S They'll be worn out before
me! CHEERS

Again, don't worry about the CPUs. They will be fine.

If I was in your situation I would boot my Vista install DVD and do a Repair
Install.

The chat support is horrible. I log on and get connected with an agent, he
receives my first or second message and then it fails. Tried two times.
Whatever chat software they are using, needs to be changed. It's very
frustrating.

Hi cdlaney,

This will show you how to uninstall the SP1. I would recommend that you backup anything you do not want to lose to be safe first.

Go here, download the full standalone install;
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...6d-5ebb-413b-89c9-cb3d06d12674&DisplayLang=en

Boot into Safe Mode (F8) and start the install from there.

I've used this method on three different Vista machines,
two desktops and one laptop..... it has worked flawlessly.

Ignore the title and use the Methods laid out here:
The update is not installed successfully, you receive a message, and the
computer restarts when you try to install an update in Windows Vista

HELP! PLEASE!

FIRST calm down, I have had cpu's running at 100% load for over 5
years now and there is NO damage to them!!!! It is called Distributed
Computing and that is what it does, run your cpu at 100% full load
24/7/365. Yes even quad cores are designed to be fine running at 100%
24/7/365. Now you get into overclocking and you MAY have issues. But a
standard processor will do much more than most people think!

Second follow the link provided by MowGreen.
