Windows 7: Can't install Windows 7 Service Pack 1

Can't install Windows 7 Service Pack 1

I have Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit. I have never had SP1 before. I recently rolled back my PC a few day with system restore, then updated Windows to the newest updates. I downloaded SP1 32-bit and when I try to install it, it installs right to almost the end and gives me:Error 0x80070002

I've looked around on the internet but have yet to found a fix. This error seems to affect a lot of different things.

i found this. they talk about 64 bit, but it should apply to 32 bit as well.

Make sure Windows Firewall is turned on. If you are using another firewall, disable it.

Are you installing Via Windows Update or Standalone Installer?

I've tried Windows Update and the standalone version. Still nothing. The consistency is good. The guide didn't help either. Thanks for trying. Does it have something to do with the system restore I did?

Guess there is one way to prove that.
You will have to decide.
