Yea I tried but it still kept wanting to download again I think problem was in secruity center not being able to recognize something. Client was happy after complete system recovery back to factory settings. Yes I used the desructive one and wiped all. Reloaded his docs and he's happy.
Intalled all Vista updates with no problem.
Thanks!
