Okay. Try one of the following steps. If one doesn't work, try the other.

1.
  Follow Step 6 here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html - "Download DDS"

2.
  Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from http://images.malwareremoval.com/random/RSIT.exe and save it to your desktop.
  Double click on RSIT.exe to launch program.
  Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  Your firewall may alert you that RSIT is requesting Internet access. Please allow it.
  Once it has finished, two logs will open: log.txt<-- this will be maximized and info.txt<-- this will be minimized.
  Post log.txt in your answer.

          Re-install Vista...i'd do a clean install.
          Assemble all your drivers beforehand.

          Then invest in a good solid drive image app for backups for when things go sour...as they're bound to do again...

          Seeing as you can't do anything else, try one last thing. If this doesn't work then I'm afraid a clean install is the only recovery.

          Download ComboFix© by sUBs from one of the below links. Be sure top save it to the Desktop.

          Link #1
          Link #2

          **Note:  It is important that it is saved directly to your Desktop

          Close any open Web browsers. (Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc) before starting ComboFix.
           
          Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
          Vista users Right-Click on ComboFix.exe and select Run as administrator (you will receive a UAC prompt, please allow it)
          When finished ComboFix will produce a log for you.
          Post the ComboFix log in your next reply.

          Important: Do not mouseclick ComboFix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

          It may help but so far it seems he's unable to DLoad...

              I can't find or think of anything else possible other than a clean install.
