    Following corrupted files , I did a full reinstall from disk.
    so now my laptop is trying to run an old version of internet explorer .

    have had lots of updates but not SP1 or 2

    I would like to get Chrome up and running but it wont download.

    also if i try to update the IE the page aborts.

    anyone else had this ?

    currently trying the microsoft fix it utility to troubleshoot.

    cant do a standalone download of SP1

    argggggghh:mad:

    have the same problem here
    had to re-install from scratch my vista due to directory problems
    when updating it tells me there is a new update available SP1 ,
    I download & install pc tells me it was successfully installed-restart pc
    When pc restarts the same update(SP1) is again there available ,
    seems its not really successfully installing it
    think I tried it more than 20/30 times now with NO success
    sometimes it also direct me to install IE9 64bit,
    but mine is a 32bit vista so its not compatable
    its driving me crazy
