Service Pack Loop Problems

Service pack update is stuck in loop: 3 of 3
All the suggestions did not work. Is the next step to change the pending doc on the registry file? If so how easy is this?

A few more details would help here.
Service pack for what would be a start?
What operating system?
What,if any error messages?
What suggestions do you refer to?
Etc etc.

MS Vista
The pc gets stuck and message is
Service pack update is stuck in loop: 3 of 3 0%”.

I have tried to reboot using last good configuration and safe mode etc but nothing works.

Is the only option to do a factory restore? I dont want to lose the data I have and I have not made a back up.

Can you get into command prompt in safe mode as you could do a system restore from there.
