It can mean that an update did not finish downloading or installing. The System Update Readiness Tool for Windows can correct some conditions that cause this error. To use the tool, follow these steps:

1. Go to the Knowledge Base article webpage <http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821>. In the Information for advanced users section, find the Windows edition and system type of your computer, and then click the link to download the System Update Readiness Tool.

2. Run Windows Update again.


The most reliable and quickest way to install Windows 7 SP1 is to install manuall.

First of all make sure you install the prerequisite to installing SP1. You can get it from here... http://www.pagestart.com/win7sp1steps021611.html> How to increase your chances of installing Service Pack 1 successfully.

Then download SP1 manually from here... http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=c3202ce6-4056-4059-8a1b-3a9b77cdfdda

For 32-Bit Windows 7 download: windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe 537.8MB

For 64-Bit Windows 7 download: windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe 903.2MB

Download, *save*, and install the Service Pack with no security software (antivirus/security suite) installed, disconnect from Internet, disable the fire-wall & close all non-essential process in the task manager. I also recommend taking off USB keys or any external media as this takes place.

When it is downloaded right click on the file and select Run As Administrator from the menu.
