I'm at the end of my tether with this problem now, so any advice/help would be very much appreciated!

 

I am running Vista 32-bit SP2 and cannot successfully install KB2839229 no matter what I do.  It fails with error code 80070020 every time.  Initially it tells me that it has installed correctly, but on rebooting, configuring the update is unsuccessful.  I have tried downloading the update directly and that fails in exactly the same way.

 

What I have tried so far:

 

Disabling all security software during the process

Running Microsoft's FixIt

Running Windows Repair (All in one)

 

I can't seem to do a clean reboot, msconfig hangs when I try to disable all but Microsoft services and WU will not run in Safe Mode with networking at all.

Great! Now don't forget to install windows update regularly! (Or just select automatic update.)
