Backup your data files (external hard-drive or burn some DVDs).
Then, reinstall Vista -- much quicker than trying to "trouble-shoot".

Updating...


Sounds like the automatic updater has glitched. Start by trying a system restore from the system tools in the accessories section of the start menu. Go back to a point about a month or so back. However, since this is integrated into the operating system you may need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc, if the restore doesn't clear up the problem.
