    Microsoft you should be ashamed to call yourselves professionals!!! This is a
    known issue and has been ongoing for a year ,or more! VERY SAD! I'm tired
    of getting pc after PC brought to me with the same issues that your company
    fails to resolve. My next machine, and my companies next machine , will be a
    MAC! Instead of throwing money at advertising to compete against the MAC,
    put your money into employees who know how to make the software and the
    updates work properly. I for one, am tired of having to buy new operating
    systems everytime your faulty patched together crap fails on every other

    Hi guys,

    first off I have no Vista CD, I have tried all the methods in this
    thread, booting into safe mode does not work, it goes into the loop.

    I have also tried to get into recovery but when it askes for the
    administror pass word it says "administrator disabled"

    I'm kinda at a loss as to what to do next?

    Any help would be greatly apprciated.

    This IS an old issue, but CLEARLY no one has found a satisfactory fix. I
    installed the latest automatic update in Dec. 2009 and have encountered it. I
    am looking at losing EVERYTHING because of a trusted update. What is the
    tried and true action that will fix this? I see a variety of updates but no
    one has said it fixed their system and they were able to fix it once and for
    all. IS there a correct fix?

    Instead of tacking yourself on to an existing thread, try starting a new one
    with OS, service pack and error code/codes you are receiving. You may think
    you're having the same problem, but different OS's may have different fixes.

    Have you read the complete thread and tried any of the previous fixes listed
    in TaurArian's reply?

    It's a well known fact that most people who are helped here don't respond
    back with a "thank you" or "it worked."

    Try dropping the attitude. No one here works for Microsoft. The MVP's are
    volunteers as are all the others who try to help.
