For awhile now I have been in an endless cycle configuring updates. After I install the updates and reboot it says configuring updates 1 of 3. Then when it is finished it says updates were not configured correctly reverting changes. Needless to say I have a lot of uninstalled updates. How can I fix this?

what are the microsoft reference numbers for the hotfixes which fail?
it will say under update history

Me too. It costed me to download and install that big SP1 and I plan to turn of because it won't even download. I don't know what is wrong with Vista Home Premium in my Laptop??

There are too many to list. Pretty much every update for the last few months.
