Vista Updates fail - error codes - 800F0816, 80242016
Currently have 11 important updates that fail to install and 29 optional. I have tried to install updates 1 at a time, reboot the PC and the system then runs through Windows startup recovery. I have installed the latest version of Windows Update, I have
renamed Catroot2 and software distribution directories. I have tried to install SP1 and system response with SP1 already installed, tried to install SP2 and system responds with SP1 needs to be installed. Any help, ideas greatly received

Did you perform all the steps from this link that Halima provided:
Specifically did you try resolution 3 and 4? If not, then try them.
If so then try this:
Disconnect all external devices (except keyboard and mouse)
Then perform a Clean Boot and download the SP1 standalone (looks like you already have it).
Disconnect from the internet and then attempt to install SP1.
If that still fails, verify the error code and post which one you got. You may also want to consider the possibility that you have a virus\malware infection. Take a look at these links.
