    don't know if this has anything to do with it but had to reinstall vista after putting in a new hard drive and it won't let me update vista even to the first service pak

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    Try resetting the Windows update components:

    You could manually do it or use the fix it tool. I would first try the fix it tool. Make sure you use the one for vista. It should be the second one.
