For what it's worth, This solution worked for me.
There was mention made of using some 3rd party Reg cleaner possibly causing
I have used CCleaner on this machine running Vista Ultimate W/Office 2007
Pro. I also have another machine running Vista Home Premium W/ Office 2007
Standard. I have used CCleaner on that machine as well. SP1 installed
correctly on that computer.
It might be interesting to note that during the install process for the
failed update, a virus scan initiated itself and caused the system to freeze,
requiring a system restart.
From that point on it was not possible to successfully install The SP1 update.
The virus scanner is AVG.
It's purely conjecture on my part, however it seems that disabling AV during
an update or install still holds true.
Thanks again for your solution,
