I have a HP Pavilion DV6000 Notebook with Vista Home Premium SP2 that has 2 problems:

1. There are 24 updates available but will not configure properly and reverts to original settings after rebooting.
2. Restarting from the Start Menu shuts down by does not restart - needs to be turned on manually.

Are you sure you did not interrupt the computer when windows prompt you to restart and is installing/configuring on boot-up? Try going to safemode and choose startup repair or go here -> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/

I had consider that as part of the issue, but would leaving the computer for 24 hours be long enough time to wait?

1 day would be too much actually. 5 to 10 minutes would be realistic. Try this http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_update/ or follow the previous suggestion with links.

Could not run FixIt without Vista CD (not supplied with computer). Any further help with loading updates or will I need to upgrade to Windows 8?

I think your notebook can create multiple copies of System Repair Disc and 1 set of Recovery Discs which you may have overlooked. From your Start button, type repair disc and choose "Create a system repair disc". Have your 1 piece CD-R disc ready by this time and then proceed as instructed. If your computer came with a recovery partition, you can also create a set of recovery discs. Recover Windows Vista OS using HP Recovery could only be a last resort if you've backup all important documents. This is only applicable if the system is beyond repair. If you are successful in creating the system repair disc, boot from there and follow the links including the MS support fixit if needed.

If tha doesnt work,install each update individually.

and restart the PC.
