    The install fails. I have tried emptying the temp folders and cleaning the
    system, all in safe mode. I have tried agressively removing the update
    history (using the Microsoft 'do it for me' program, which worked) to reset
    the update system, and getting updates all over again, but nothing has
    worked. This is a Sony x64 machine. Would appreciate any help getting
    KB975467 to install

  2. Hi Phil,

    Perhaps some maintenance, try running the "chkdsk /r"

    Check Disk or Chkdsk is disk error checking in VISTA.

    It can be used to check for corruption and possibly repair errors and bad
    sectors on the hard drive.

    Run SFC /SCANNOW
    System File Checker (SFC) checks that all Vista files are where they should
    be and that they are uncorrupted.
    WHY: You want to ensure that core operating system files have not been
    damaged or modified.

    My Vista HP is SP2 and supposedly up-to-date. Where do you get this SP3
    from?
