Thank you for the help given to stop the re booting of my PC, it seems from the link given that it is a windows vista Update 937287 that caused the problem. what i need to know is what do i do about new updates that need installing, what if it has the same update and it causes the same problem. I don't want to have to keep re installing . there was no disks provided with PC and a lot of answers on other sites say to run the Vista CD at start up at the moment i have not updated anything more, hope that makes sense.

If you change the automatic update setting to 'inform me but don't download', you will be able to untick the ones you don't want to install.

You can also hide the update so you don't accidentally download and install it in future.

I would hide it if i knew which one it was. I've read a lot about this problem with the Vista update, i was lucky to be able to get out of the loop, lots of others haven't,
It seems it's a big problem so why has there not been a fix for it? or has there and ive missed it?
The PC is only 3 weeks old , i might try taking it back to Argos and see what they say.

You say in your first post that it was 937287 that caused the problem. You can block that particular one if you change the settings as I suggested. If it's a download causing the difficulty, Argos won't be the slightest bit interested.

Yes i read somewhere that it was 937287 (cant remember where ive been reading anything i can about it all day).
The reason i thought of taking it back is so many people are having trouble with microsoft updates on Vista ,i thought they should know, oh well,

Is it a laptop ? Most PC's have a recovery procedure to enable you to return it all to "day one" by reinstalling the operating system from a hidden partition.

3 weeks old with Vista... are Argos still selling PC's with Vista.

I googled your KB number and it seems an old problem... 2 years old... so that should have been sorted ages ago.

I run Vista and tbh haven't had a single update problem... not much comfort to you... although I don't have them install automatically.

Is your PC already supplied with Vista service pack 2 installed ?
