Windows 7: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Failure Install Problem

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Failure Install Problem

I was installing Windows 7 SP1 last night and it got a certain point where it failed, it tried again and same results. When I got back to my desktop my Task bar had been changed to look like a Windows 7 version of the classic task bar. I can't get on the internet when I try to open my network settings to check for my wireless networks nothing comes up. I can't do a system restore cause my system restore points are gone. I've read around the internet about other people having problems with the SP1 but I can't find one exactly like or a solution. Btw I'm on another computer right now so that's how I'm posting this and online about it. I tried doing the BITS properties thing where I make sure the Service Status says running or something like that, but mine says stopped and when I click Start it says "Windows could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service on Local Computer........ Error Code 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start. I can't uninstall SP1 because it never installed. My computer started having this problem when it failed to install but it was working fine before it. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit so I believe that makes it x86. Please tell me if there is something I can do without having to reinstall Windows 7 and lose everything. Thanks!

Hello, and welcome to the Seven Forums!

Your SP1 is failing to install because BITS is not started.

Most services require other services to be already started in order to start themselves.

Error  Code 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.
Means that BITS itself did not have a problem, but one of its dependencies failed to start.

Please go back into services, and try to start ALL of the following services. If any come back with another error code 1068, move on. The one I am interested in is whichever one fails to start with a different error message.

COM+ Event System
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
DCOM Server Process Launcher
RPC Endpoint Mapper

The only other meaning for 1068 is that one of those above services has been disabled. Please make sure that none of the above have been disabled. If one is disabled, enable it, and then try to restart them all, and see if they now do.

Please include the name of the one at fault, any error messages, if it is enabled or disabled etc. of all of the above.

Thanks a lot, and the very best of luck!

It was the COM+Event that was disabled and once I enabled it everything else started running, but my computer is still in the same shape as before. Any idea what I should do now?

I also went to services and started all the other programs and now everything SEEMS to be working right.
