Thank you for these points. As my son's PC denied it had any restore points when booted from the Vista DVD and we had limited ability to do very much from the command prompt, we decided it was time to completely re-install.
That's now been done and all the updates installed without problem this time.
I very much appreciate the exceelent responses supplied by many contributers in this group - it has been very helpful in getting through this problem.

I checked with our setup team and so far they have only seen one case with
1. Located a full edition of the media to test recovery options using the
system restore to go back to a restore point prior to the problem.
940765 How to use System Restore to log on to Windows Vista when you lose
access to an account
2. Once on the machine, check "update history" to see which update(s)
failed to install. Go to microsoft's download center
and manually download and install this update (s).
927532 When you use Windows Update to install an update in Windows Vista,
the update may not appear in the Programs and Features item in Control Panel
3. Once updates have installed and the machine has been rebooted, test
Windows Update again.
NOTE: This particular case had problems with KB937287. Update 937287 is a
prerequisite package (pre req for vista sp1) that contains updates to the
Windows Vista installation software. The installation software is the
component that handles the installation and the removal of software updates,
language packs, optional Windows features, and service packs.

My computer is not an Acer, its a home made PC I built myself.
My computer has been up2date since I installed Vista (ultimate), and the
problem must have come from one of the latest updates, I only remember one of
the updates in the list before it rebooted, it was the one with the
"addresses a vulnerability in Windows Vista" text.
