Windows SP2 will not install on Windows Vista Home Premium x64 based system; I have tried a stand-alone install and an install through windows update both give me the error code 0x800f0900. Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated, I cannot play the Diablo 3 game I bought because of this issue! :( I have already gone through the Am I infected? and the malware removal forums on this website and have removed the viruses on my computer I was told to post in the Vista forum for help with this

You did not complete the process of neutralizing malware in your topic at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic469409.html/page__st__15 . You were requested to run a malware log and you failed to respond/resply to said request...and your topic was subsequently closed for lack of response.

That topic reflected symptoms that you now complain about.

I suggest that you send a PM to Gringo, asking for that topic to be reopened...and finish that topic...before making assumptions that your system is clean and devoid of problems previously existing.

But he told me after running that last scan to take my vista problem to the vista board... and I didn't complain about anything.

Your PC is infected,, The error may go away with cleaning but it will niot succed until you are cleaned .

when we finish up you might have to check in the Vista forum about that

This is what gringo is implying.
