Hi,

 

This issue may occur if any of the system files are missing or got corrupted while trying to install SP1.

Since you have already tried to run System Readiness tool and SFC scan, let’s try the following steps and check.

Method 1:

You may try to reset Windows update components by running the Fixit or the manual steps and check.

How do I reset Windows Update components?

Important: The above mentioned link contains steps to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

For more information, you may refer to the article:

Back up the registry

 

Method 2:

You may also try installing the standalone package of SP1 in clean boot state and check.

Note: After you have finished the troubleshooting, refer to the section “How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot” to boot the system in normal start up.

Note: Also make sure you have a backup of the important data on the computer.

For further information, refer to the article to install the standalone package:

Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

For more information, you may refer to the article:

Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center    

 

Method 3:

I would also suggest you completely disable all the third party security software and firewalls installed on the computer and check.

Some of the security software services will be still running when you only try to disable them.

Important: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable or uninstall your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable or uninstall it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled or uninstalled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

 

Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance with Windows related issues. We will be happy to help.

III.- Right-click "Command Prompt" and click "Run as administrator".

IV.- In "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type in " net stop WuAuServ " (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Note: Pləase look at the cmd window and make sure it says that it was successfully stopped before we try to rename the folder.

V.- Click the "Start" Button, in the "Start Səarch" box, type in " %windir% " (without the quotes) and press Enter.

VI.- In the opened folder, look for the folder named "SoftwareDistribution".

VII.- Right-click on the folder, select "Rename" and type " Sdold " (without the quotes) to rename this folder.
