Yesterday I attempted to update this computer to Win7 SP1. When I logged in this morning, I had no icons present on my taskbar nor desktop. The start menu was not working either. I was able to successfully do a system restore to a date previous to the update.
Now when I try to update via Windows update, it freezes at 99% of download. So I downloaded the SP1 standalone update for 64-bit. When installing (with Run as Administrator), I get an error stating that sqmapi.dll is missing or corrupted.
Steps I've tried:
- I ran sfc /scannow (as Administrator) - all cleaned and repaired
- I ran the System Update Readiness Tool (Windows6.1-KB947821-v10-x64.msu) to completion.
- I have restarted the computer multiple times - no problems with boot or login
