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.

Need the product activation key for windows vista ultimate 32bit please

You should contact Microsoft directly to get a genuine activation key. Contacting Microsoft directly will also keep you from having issues with activation or updates in the future.
Hope that helps!

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.

Im not able to install security updates and I've tried alot of things and still wont work

Are you sure your product key is valid and your product is activated. To see if it's activated go to start --> right-click on My Computer -->left click on properties. Scroll down and windows activation should be at the bottom. If it's not activated, you need to click on the activate link. You can activate over the phone and through the internet. You need to have a valid license (not pirated) for activation and updates. If it is activated, able to connect to the internet (just open internet explorer and go to to make sure) then contact microsoft by email by filling out the form at or call them at (877) MY-MSSTore

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..
