Back in the xp days, your start menu was located in C:\Documents and Settings\MyName\Start Menu.  Now in windows 7 and Windows 2008, it is more obscure.

Yeah I know, why am I still on Vista ... I just don't look forward to finding all my original media to wipe the machine clean and reinstall. 
I've been having a ugly time with some windows updates (not all) failing to install.

This was an interesting app that I saw on ZDNET  
It seems to be more robust that task manager.

Ughh what an ugly issue on MS Vista. This error reared its head over a year ago and never have been to resolve it completely.
I think that I found one possible workaround that works for me: Disable Carbonite.

Update: Sadly disabling Carbonite didn't always work.
I believe that the issue is with the windows installer. I had another issue and got a HotFix from Microsoft. See Windows Installer Failure Blog Entry
