Vista SP2 not installing

  JITC1 18:44 01 Jun 2009

I have got the SP2 in my automatic updates and when I install it, it seems to fail. It gives an error code 800B0100.

I checked the microsoft site and it said that I need to install KB847821, which I did(twice), but it still gives me the same error.

I have tried it 3 times but still no luck.

I have Vista Business. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks sea urchin, will give it a try tommorrow.... but must say that as i only have the vista firewall, i'm surprised that it might be the cause of the problem

Give it a try - any firewall can cause a problem

Hi sea urchin

Gave this a go today and again it failed. Tried it three times. Once it came up with the message that I didn't need it (strange)
