While I understand that it's urgent for you to fix this issue, I believe that the repeated attempts to fix everything the moment that it pops up have resulted in additional problems that are masking the true issue here.
So here's what I'd suggest:
1) Perform a repair installation of Vista (this may be difficult as the RC is set to expire in the near future) and get the Windows Updates if you are able.
2) Uninstall all of your drivers (one by one) and then reinstall them with the latest, Vista compatible drivers that are available. At this point, if there isn't a Vista driver for a component on your system - disable it. This will prevent compatibility issues from rearing their ugly head during the troubleshooting process. (this, I suspect, will fix the problem)
3) Test the system for hardware issues. I'd suggest SiSoft Sandra Lite for a general checkup (it's free), MemTest86 for your memory, and a diagnostic utility from the manufacturer of your hard drive.
