Fatal error c0190003 after installing Service Pack 1 in Windows 7 computer.

Original Title: Fatal error c0190003 for updates and computer will not go past this error... system recovory wont work because of issues deleting a file/directory.

I started doing updates and one of the updates was the windows 7 SP1 and this was happening overnight... today when i come to check my computer it says it has a fatal error c0190003 and my computer does not go past this error... i have restarted and rebooted my computer more than enough times to be sure that this problem needs attention and cannot be ignored...(meaning i cant go through it without doing something about it).. so i read that i should restore my computer to a previous point... and i only have one system restore point and that is i believe right before i started downloading the updates.... but when i do system restore it gives me an error in the end saying: "System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computers system files and settings were not changed. Details: System Restore failed while deleting the following file/directory. Path: D:\Windows\winsxs\FileMaps\$$_ehome_createdisc_filters_5fe1b967f204215a.cdf-m" and the rest is blocked off.... i cant read it... nor can i enlarge the window  so if anyone can please help i would be gratefull a whole lot
