3) some pages of internet explorer like Hotmail login page are blank i tried to upgrade to IE 9 but it won't load due to having only service pack 1 and when i try to upgrade to SP 2 I can not use the windows update option to do it, i tried loading the long version of SP2 from the Microsoft website but i keep getting the installation wasn't successful error: E_FAIL(0X80004005), it is frustrating, I would greatly appreciate all the help, thank you

See if you can download and run the installer for Microsoft Security Essentials. I suspect you may have a worm or virus that is preventing updates. Or some grub boot loader or maybe some registry edits that are causing it.
This may be the best but not clear link.

It may be that you would have to buy or obtain a cd to boot your computer from then scan for malware. It may not hurt too much to try Vista's "repair" while booted from dvd.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
