It's been about 24 hours now without a recurrence of the prob.
I'll bookmark this forum right now!!

You're very welcome. I'm new to these forums and I'm just glad I can help. As I stated before I was having the same problem so it was a win win!!

Vista and Windows 7

I had the problem originally where it wouldn't update and kept failing. I took the update off using the clean up tool and then re installed using Mike's version. The update finally worked and the history says it was successful. However, I now have the update still telling me to do it every night? Does anyone know how to stop it? I have hidden it but really I wonder if this is ok? Isn't updating it once successfully good enough?
I was so grateful for the help about actually getting it to work, so many thanks all for that! I just need to stop the constant update bit now? Please help if you can!

If the cleanup tool fails too (Win 7 Ent x86), there is another solution.

Little drastic, but it's good for your system to do once in a while anyway.

I fixed the problem (finally) by doing a repair upgrade - I did have to download a warez version for this to do it - my original install cd is SP0 and a repair upgrade will not work when you are already on SP1. GOOD distro to use is by "BIE". Use Bit Che + utorrent if you need it... With poweriso, you don't even have to burn the dvd to fix your pc ;)
