Windows Modules Installer stopped working and was closed

Hello I am stock in a loop..very time Windows Update tries to install an
update (any update) it now crashes after about 1 minute with the message in
the title. I have tried running updates manually, indvidually, the systems
forces an update on close or hibernate then hangs which is really irritating
:-(...running Vista Home Premium (OEM build) on a HP Pavilion t3729.uk .
Last sucessful update was KB936825.......any help much appreciated
............

Plus if anyone knows how to get Vista to stay asleep for more than a couple
of mins without auto waking up for no apparent reason that would earn a bonus
prize !!

I have exactly the same problem! Theres no answers - all i recommend if you
are crazy enough is to re-format the drive then re-install Vista then update
before installing all yr software..

I wont try this if you have d/l's progs which you cannot ascertain again
afterwards.

Only other option is to try this:

The website mentioned below explains better about the above mentioned error
code.

Click on Start- > in search box type command.
Right click on the command from the list, and select the option "Run As
Administrator", click on OK to continue.


Type the following commands mentioned below.



c. Type NET STOP WUAUSERV and press Enter. (Leave this window open for later
use).

Open My Computer.



d. Find the folder c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

e. Delete all the components from the folder (SoftwareDistribution).
