I'm running Vista x64 Home Premium as admin (SP1 not installed)

Steps I've taken:

  • Googled the problem.

  • Uninstalled PowerShell 1

  • Cleaned the local registry via regedit, removed entries containing "PowerShell"

  • Rebooted.

I still get the problem. Windows Update Standalone Installer crunches for 30 seconds and then posts the "The update does not apply to your system."

Any additional ideas/suggestions for working around this problem?

Thanks
