I've _exactly_ the same problem (and Google says I'm not alone :-)). I tried all the suggested workarounds (and even more), without success.
My guess is that there is a problem with WMP11, which is NOT uninstallable/re-installable under Vista, AFAIK
Moreover, with the KB973540 installation pending, SP2 installation fails shortly after the reboot, when Vista tries to substitute/install Wmpplayer-ppdlic.xrm-ms.
I've an Acer Aspire M5100, with Avira free as antivirus.
