    Delete the "pending.xml" file in C:\Windows\winsxs if it exists.

    When was the last time you scanned the system for malware?. Do you have Anti Virus software installed and up to date?

    The earlier solution of delete pending.xml helped to resolve the issue. This morning when i restarted the laptop , it got booted without this message on and it Was quick enough.

    Thanks a lot Mumbodog for providing the solution to make the system works back to normal. These message has given me really tough time quite from long time.

    Thanks again.

    God Bless u.

    Regards

    I am still wondering if SP1 was installed properly.

    There is Service Pack 2 available for Vista and should be installed.
