I am getting the error 0x80080005 when trying to update Vista SP1 to SP2.  I ran SFC and it found errors but it was unable to repair.

Any ideas other than reinstalling the OS?

Important Before you install Windows Vista SP2 from the Download Center, follow these steps:
•Recommended: Install the latest updates for Windows Vista SP 1 from the Windows Update
and install the update for Ks.sys from Microsoft Web site.

Consider upgrading to windows 7 as this is the full package and includes the advancements from Vista SP 2

Nothing I tried from the recommendations above or other forums worked.  Decided to do a backup, format the drive and start from scratch.
