Problem with Windows Vista SP1 Update.

I have a clients machine to do some work on.  I tried to install an application program but it failed saying SP1 needed to be installed.  I started the SP1 Update but on restart, it had some sort of error.  I shutdown,  restarted,  went to Windows Update which said there were no important updates.  I tried to install the application program again but got the same error.

How can I tell if SP1 has been installed?  

How can I force a re -update of SP1?

Thanks in advance.

Client has taken the machine.  I should get it back in a couple of days.  Then I'll continue.

Nothing worked.  I took it to a reputable computer shop where I know the techs to be very capable.  After some hours work they concluded that Vista would have to be re-installed.  The client will likely take this option.

Thanks for your assistance.  What should I do with this question, points etc?

Please advise.
