Hi Spliff

You could try downloading the update directly from here.

Have you tried to activate your rc?

View windows update > remove updates. Which you probably tried already. I had a similar problem and I was forced to use system restore. You can also try a roll back with system image. Maybe the Win 7 disc, repair. In any event I wish you luck.
