So what happens if you have to reinstall Vista? If I was you, I would get the DVD or
explore the other means that the dealer who sold you the computer has done to enable you
to restore Vista in emergency situation.
The update is not installed successfully, you receive a message, and the computer restarts
when you try to install an update in Windows Vista
For those who are unfamiliar with System Restore in Vista - see Using System Restore from
the Vista Windows Recovery Environment
