Option #2 didn't work either. It claims that SP1B isn't installed, although, it obviously is.

That's what I thought if it wasn't listed under the release KB number.

One other thought. You wouldn't happen to be using Windows 7 Backup would you?

How long ago did you run CCleaner? Also, what's your system specs? Use an SSD for system drive? If you do, I'm out of bullets. If not, there may be another way to recover the deleted files.

Hiya,
I had this same problem when SP1 RTM came and after doing a lot of research and help from this forum and other MS forum's, I found the ONLY way to sort this out was a clean install of my PC & Laptop. Have a look at this thread for more information:-

Hello!

As already mentioned, a Clean Install is most likely the only way. There is one long shot method, however, which does work for some lucky people. Do you still have the SP1 beta installer you used? See if you can dig it out from your Downloads folder.

Then read the Using PKGMGR Command: Uninstalling Service Pack at the very bottom of this link: Windows Update - Uninstall from Console Level

To save yourself a bit of time, consider using my tool for the extraction process: Windows Update - Extract an Update

Summary:

Find installer,
Extract using my tool
start /w pkgmgr /m:{full service pack name}.cab /up /s:{sandobox folder}

P.S. If you can't find the installer easily, this method has such a low success rate (although high enough for me to mention it), that I would just recommend a Clean Install.

The very best of luck!

Sadly, it was so long ago, that I have neither the original installer, nor a chance of recovering it. =/

I thank all of you for your help anyway, although, I guess I'll -have- to do a clean install. -
