    Hi, i have this problem:

    I had Comodo Firewall installed on my PC and with it i couldn't install the
    KB942763 update. Once uninstalled Comodo the update success, but the Vista
    update system went into a nerverending loop. Now, every time i login Vista
    tell me that i have to reboot my machine to complete the installation of

    If i start the Windows Update applet, it tell me "Impossible to update
    important files and services while in use. Save open files and reboot... etc.
    etc. "

    I tried to stop the Windows Update service and renaming the "Software
    Distribution" folder, but without success. What i hava to do to solve this
    damned boring thing?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure if this will help but it does seem logical to me. Restore your
    system to an earlier date when it was running OK. Then before you unistall
    COMODO, try to do the work-around disabling D+ as described in a reply that I
    posted earlier in this forum. If the work-around doesn't work [doesn't seem
    to be 100% successful] then your only other option is to COMPLETELY uninstall
    it - which it may be even after the restore. Reboot and then apply the
    update. Hopefully, the COMODO people are aware of the problem and are trying
    to figure out a solution with some sort of patch. If it is unistalled, make
    sure that you turn Vista's firewall back on.

    Hi Charles and thanks for the reply.

    The problem isn't the installation of the update, who success, but the
    continuos alert that Vista give me to reboot the machine. It seems that i
    can't get ride of this.

    Yes, I do understand that Vista is installed and somewhat working properly.
    It's my thought that perhaps a necessary file got corrupted or broken, thus
    the loop. If it were my computer, I would try the system restore. It seems
    to me that this would do nothing to hurt the machine and it just might help.
    Right now you have nothing else to try.
