Windows 7: Unable to Install Service Pack 1

Unable to Install Service Pack 1

I'm having a problem with the Windows Update and have reached the frustrating conclusion that the SP1 update just doesn't want to install on my desktop.

I continuously get the "code 80070005" error every time SP1 tries to install. I've looked at and run just about every "fix" suggested on this and other forums, but nothing has solved the problem.

Should I just ignore the SP1 update and install the other security updates as they become available?

Steve2526,
Welcome to SevenForums. I googled this and by chance did you update your OS from Vista to Windows 7?

Well good news is you've got full function of the system till this gets resolved as I'll do some additional checking around on this but you've come to the right place and as they say the Cavalry is coming !

I don't use MSN or have it installed. I'm using MS Security Essentials for AV and firewall.

This is kind of a stretch but have you tried the update in safe mode with networking?
