    The service pack 2 update keeps failing. First with the error 800F0823 and
    then when I try again with 800F0826. It just cycles between those two errors
    each time I try to install.

    I followed the instructions and tried to install SP2 through Windows Update.
    It said it installed, but when I checked my system still says SP1. Update
    history shows the Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (KB948465) update was
    successful.

    I still get notification that the Standalone service pack wants to install,
    but when it tries it fails.

    I'm stuck in a loop.

    How to troubleshoot Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 service pack
    installation issues http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947366

    Installation Tips:

    • Your computer will restart several times during the installation process:
    Make certain you've saved your work and closed all open applications before
    beginning the install.

    • Disable (1) your anti-virus application, (2) any real-time system
    protections afforded by any anti-spyware applications (except Defender), &
    (3) your third-party firewall (if any) and then (4) enable the Windows
    Firewall _before installing or uninstalling_ Vista SP2.

    • The installation process can take an hour or more: If you're installing
    SP2 on a portable computer, make sure that you plug-in the power cord and
    have the battery inserted into its bay.

    • Vista SP1 is a prerequisite for installing SP2. If you use Windows Update
    or the Automatic Update feature in Windows Vista, you will not be offered
    the option to install SP2 until you first install SP1.
