Do the following.

Repair your PC via the Windows installation DVD

Then again download the required activeX controls.

In this way you wont lose your data either and the problem would also be solved.

If you are behind a dial-up or cable modem, you may not be getting the required speed for the current Windows Live dl app/setup. At any rate, you cannot give up with trying, because i've heard reports of taking up to 20 tries to get this! It is an MS problem, so keep trying! Problem Solved! Thanks!

When I'm told to down load to my hard drive is that the same as down load to my computer?

Yes as the hard drive contains the operating system, personal stuff, programs and any files needed to work correctly. Usually to install anything you first download it to your hard drive and if you are asked for a location to save it to you select a folder of your choice. You can usually select Desktop if that makes it easier for you, then it will be right there in front of you. Then you click or double click it to run/install it and follow any prompts that appear. Hope this helps.

The BIOS has to match the files on the DVD. If you install it on a different make of computer or on an older version of the same make it will not activate.
What you are doing is illegal. You must pay for a licence for Vista if you install it. An XP licence does NOT cover you to run Vista. You must buy a copy of retail version Vista from a shop.

Windows vista activation

Yes, and you're definitely acting too thick to be trusted with a computer. For example, if you'd recorded error messages with more exactness, and attribution of errors to a particular context (say, a Windows Vista bluescreen or a particularly titled message-box;) then I might be assured that you could suffer people well to help you accomplish ambitions and fly through the checkpoints and tribulations. This is not yet the case.

Give some context as to what was working and when it stopped, what reproducible signs of malfunction and diagnostics arise, and in the case of Vista activation on spare HDs, RTFMYGDSOBOMGROFLMAO. Vista's acting normal. Try installing another OS for the practice and diversity. Most glaringly, you need to form complete sentences, with clear attribution of what says what when it says it.

VIsta bbusiness refusing to boot up

you could try entering in safemode to uninstall the update..
to enter safemode.. after a couple of seconds of being turn on, you have to press F8.. then it will ask you in what mode do you want to enter, enter in safe mode with no networking for less hassle and less time to enter..
then go to control panel, add or remove programs and try to find what you installed there to uninstall it..
