Guard re-setting to update Windows Update Vista SP1 successfully, but it never appears in the list of installed updates!

This happened for months and I just found out 3 days ago.  If you look at the history of the update, you see that SP1 has been installed successfully for 14 months (more than 50 successful install of SP - 1).  I was prompted to investigate the automatic update of Windows, is that it takes forever for this system to stop and start.  He is constantly confuguring or install updates and there is no stopping it most of the time.  I can't seem to get it to start in SafeMode as he zips through even if the f8 key is pressed and causing a beep.

At first I restored to an earlier point, but noted that there was very little to choose restore points.  I contacted HP and they recommended a difficulty of their site that helps with updates.  I ran and persistent .net updates succeeded (However, he is the one who seems to be back).  I ran the program of preparation for Service Pack 1 on the site of Ms.  I ran the program fix - it on the site of Ms.

Can someone help me please?
