Put it in your Downloads folder, that's as good a place as any.

Once the download finishes, I'm sure it will be either an EXE or MSI or MSP or something executable. If you just double-click on it when it's all received, it should launch automatically.

Again, this doesn't guarantee to get the missing BITS service working, which is really at the heart of the failure for Windows Update to work. And why BITS is missing, well that's the real mystery...although it clearly is somehow tied to whatever was on that recovery disk you used to supposedly reinstall Windows to "factory".

But let's see what happens when you finally try and manually run the SP1 installer. Be patient, because this will take some time to complete once it starts. You've already said in your very first post that your system is very slow, so we need to be patient (while keeping our fingers crossed about the outcome).

I assume your SP1 download is still proceeding, and that we're still waiting for it to complete. Or maybe it's completed and you're now running it to get it installed.

Anyway, while waiting, I noticed another thread which seems relevant in that it asks about how to restore missing services that have somehow disappeared. In that thread there was a reference to a tutorial which told how to use a very simple and straightforward REG "merge" (i.e. update the Windows Registry with a pre-provided definition) to reinstall and activate a missing but at one time originally present service from the complete list of services.

Your missing BITS service is not the one that the other thread is discussing, but that tutorial which describes how to get a missing service restored seems very useful and helpful... is you click on the Background Intelligent Transfer Service item (in the chart of that tutorial) and follow the rest of the instructions.

Perhaps this will get your BITS service reinstated, so that official Windows Update can once again work. Dunno. Maybe.

well i tried to do the install and it said catistrofic erro and closed down so my next step is to just get a version of windows 7 and whip the hd and start from scratch and see what happens

Too bad. But you put up a good fight.

Anyway, you're going to be MUCH BETTER OFF doing a true "retail install" from scratch with an installation DVD. Something was very wrong with that recovery disk result.

Everything you need to get a good install is here: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

including where to download a legal copy with SP1 included.
