Default Vista will not update from Service Pack 1 to Service Pack 2

Hi all I decided it was time to install Internet Explorer 9 but I am running Vista SP1 so I thought I'd update to SP2 also.

When I tried to update Vista SP1 to SP2 it has failed many times. I also tried using fixit and various other items but still no joy any help me please??

Updates are set to automatic tried several reboots no joy. When I also look at Windows Updates and click view installed updates nothing is there but there are loads when I View Update History.

This update fails all the time:

Windows Search 4.0 for Windows Vista (KB940157)

Installation date: ‎15/‎10/‎2011 08:53

Installation status: Failed

Error details: Code 80070490

Update type: Recommended

Windows Search 4.0 helps you to find, preview, and use your documents, e-mail, music, photos, and other items. On an upgrade from previous versions, you will need to rebuild your index. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.
