No question, I just gotta vent...
Downloaded SP1 via WU -- a grand total of 61.2mb.
The service pack downloaded fully but failed to install with error 80004005.
(I googled the error ... its been around for years, its cause is 'unspecified' & it's
cure is evasive.)
In addition, my SoftwareDistribution folder grew by 726mb
while C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue swelled by 1.02Gb
in crash data.
(...off to restore a Macrium image I created just prior to this l'il fiasco.)
Thanks, done venting.
