    No, you will need a third party app. Many people prefer Acronis True Image, but I lean toward a slightly more expensive, but a complete solution, with this app.

    Hi Colonel biggs,

    Welcome to the Forums Microsoft Vista

    This problem may occur if one of the following conditions is true:

    · A program on your computer interfered with the installation of the service pack.

    · There is an inconsistency in the store of Windows services. The store Windows maintenance is a required component to install service packs.

    To resolve this problem, try each resolution in the 'General resolution"and the"Advanced Troubleshooting"section in the order in which they are presented. After trying a resolution, try to install the service pack again. If you can't always install the service pack, try the next resolution.

    Resolution 1: Install the stand-alone package for the service pack instead of using Windows Update to install the Service Pack

    Note If you have already tried to install the stand-alone package for the service pack and you have encountered this problem, skip this resolution and go to resolution 2.

    If you don't know if you've tried to install the stand-alone package for the service pack, it is recommended that you try the following steps to install the stand-alone package for the service pack. By using the stand-alone package to install the service pack, you eliminate installation issues that may be related to Windows Update. This simplifies the troubleshooting process

    Solution 2: Run the system update readiness tool

    System Update tool checks your computer and trying to resolve certain conditions that can interfere with the installation of the updates or other software. However, before you download the tool, you must determine whether your computer is running a 32-bit version or a 64 bit version of the Windows Vista operating system. If your computer is Windows Vista installed, and you know which version you are using, go to the section "how to download the system update readiness tool. If you are unsure which version your computer has installed, follow these steps:

    1. click on Start

    2. collapse this includes it in the Search box, type System, and then click System in the programs list.

    The operating system is displayed as follows:

    · For a 32 - bit version operating system, 32-bit operating system appears for the system type under System.

    · For a 64 - bit version operating system, 64-bit operating system appears for the system type under System.

    After you determine which version of Windows Vista, your computer is running, download system update readiness tool.

    Resolution 3: Close or disable any applications that may be running, restart the computer and then install the service pack

    1. Close all applications and restart your computer.
    2. Once your computer has restarted, disable any antivirus or any antispyware application that can load during the startup process. You can normally disable the notification area application. This area is located in the bottom right corner of the computer screen. To disable an application in the notification area, follow these steps:
      1. Right-click the icon of the third-party program.
      2. Click Close, disable, outputor an equivalent term in the list of options. If these options are not available, you may open the application and then close or disable in the application.
    1. As soon as you close the antivirus or the antispyware software, try to install the download package full of the service pack that you previously downloaded from the following Microsoft Download Center Web site: (

    1. After completing the installation of the service pack, enable the antivirus or the antispyware software that you disabled in the previous steps.

  • HD store-bought from the computer broke down, new need for Vista Home Premium

    Computer is running (a bit) on Windows 2000.  I'd really like to come back in Vista.  Machine bought came with virtually NO cd just a little but highly recommended to 'restore' cd I've completed this step, but obviously, they are not intended for this use - tried to start a 'restoration' by loading "disk 1" of my cd 4 - but find this one .dll after another is either missing, or does not contain the correct data. ".

    I have the activation code for Vista - which means that I would really like to be able to install without having to pay as much as I already have the 25 digit key.  Impossible to find anywhere on the site Microsoft that seems just... all I see is upgraded to various service packs.

    * original title - store-bought computer s HD crashed. Bought the new HD and got that runs on Windows 2000 to now - new Vista Home Premium need - already have product key for computer but to recover CD not recherche.*

    The only people who can provide your recovery cd is the manufacturer of PC

    Missing waiting when restoring file is usually an indication of a problem of memory PC or cd drive have a bootable memory utility test

  • Why keep away my restore points for vista Home premium?

    I read recently on TechRepublic on Vista Restore devours all the disk space if not configured correctly. I used vssadmin list shadowstorage to see my restore points there is not! I did a manual restore yesterday point and repeat the command vssadmin, it appeared and everything looked good.  I went today to see if the restoration has created another point of restoration, as it is supposed to do on a daily basis, made the shadowstorage command, no restore points, including the one I did yesterday!
    I am running Vista Home Premium, SP1 32 Bit on an Acer Aspire 6920 G computer laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo T5550 1.83 GHz, 667 MHz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache, 3 GB of Ram and a 320 GB hard drive with a partition C: and D:, 104 GB left of 140 GB on D: and C:, so disk space is not a problem the latter being of full backups mobile operating system and storage, NVIDIA GEFORCE 9500 M. For security I run McAfee Security Center, as well as Spybot S & D operation resident Teatimer. Not a dual-boot machine. I checked that the C: drive is selected for restore points, and it is. Any help is greatly appreciated.


    Absolutely, I think, that's why I mentioned. Tried to get others who suggest Spybot
    for Vista and especially IE8 to tell people to stop the SBSD service and do not use TeaTimer.

    Good idea to stop the SBSD Service - value STOPPED and MANUAL, you can use SpyBot as
    as scan if needed.

    If you uninstall an antivirus/antispyware/security program never always go to their site and get
    the removal tools and/or special instructions - if you just use remove any at all they tend
    Let the remains.

    Here is what I use:

    Avast and Prevx proved extremely reliable and compatible with everything I threw at them.

    Avast Home free - stop any shields is not necessary except away from Standard, Web and network is working.

    Prevx - Home - free

    Windows Firewall

    Windows Defender

    Protected IE - mode

    IE 8 - SmartScreen filter WE (IE 7 phishing filter)

    I also IE always start with asset if filter InPrivate IE 8.
    (Sometimes you have to temporarily turn off with the little icon to the left of the + bottom right of IE)

    Avast - stop home - free - all shields you do no need except leave Standard, Web and network running.
    (Double-click the blue icon - details look OK. - upper left Shields - those that you do not cancel).
    Prevx - Home - small, fast, exceptional CLOUD free protection, working with other security programs. It comes
    a scan only, VERY EFFICIENT, if it finds something to come back here or use Google to see how to remove.

    PCmag - Prevx - Editor's choice, 2817,2346862,00.asp

    Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever suspect malware, and that would be unusual with
    Avast and Prevx running except a low occasional (not much), updated cookie and then run it as
    a scanner. I have a lot of scanners and they never find anything of note that I started to use this configuration.

    I hope this helps.
