error on vista update 80070652

My original problem is to deploy Symantec Endpoint 11 MR 4 on a server 2008 network with some Vista business computers.  
I get a "windows is waiting for a pending shutdown error on the Symantec install"  Some research has indicated that there are pending windows updates,  and there are.
The updates seem to be associated with office 2007 SP2.  The install failes with an unknown error and the number 80070652

I tried diabling windows installer and re-enabling but it did not help.  It seems to push from the server, but does not install.  If I try install from the workstaion [CD], I get the "instalations pending  waiting for a reboot error"  I can reboot, and the same thing keeps happening.  I also tried diabling defend with the same results.  The firewall is disabled on the work stations.
