I will try this idea about untweaking my logon screen as I disabled alot of Aero. I will get the error name and repost here, any other ideas let me know your success.

I gave up and uninstalled. Went back to Vista. I wish they would stop beta testing on us and release something without problems like this.

I am curious as to why you have had such lack of success with SP1.

Are you in the habit of running "Registry cleaners" (e.g., Registry Mechanic; System Mechanic; RegCure; RegClean Pro; Advanced SystemCare; AVG PC TuneUp; Norton Registry Cleaner; PCTools Optimiser; SpeedUpMyPC; CCleaner Registry Cleaner)

I'm sorry you feel that way because Windows 7 is a great system.

You can get support from Microsoft on updates issues.

Yeah I run registry cleaner, avg pro, tons of stuff, went to the Microsoft website for help, tried all the fixes online and even went to a computer shop where they tried to load it from disk with no luck. The people there weren't too happy with that service pack either. I just didn't want something pending trying to install day after day, easier to go back. Thanks for the advice!

SP1 wouldn't install if the boot screen or logon screen has been changed for the purpose of customising the computer. If that was done then one must first restore the original screens and then install SP1.

After SP1 has been installed one can revert back to the changed screens. When SP2 appears one has to remember to do the same again.

If I was you I would check your "Windows Module Installer" in services. I also have had that problem for a long time, till I decided to do something about it today. If you can't install Service Pack 1 and also if you're having problems with installing iTunes, Windows Module Installer, may be the culprit.

First you will want to check and see if Windows Module Installer is working or if it's missing.
Click Start and in the search box type in "Services" then click on the one with the icon Shaped like a gear.
Scroll all the way down till you see "Windows Module Installer"
Once you find it, double click on it, you will see the preference menu pop up.
If your WMI (Windows Module Installer) Has stopped, click on Start, then in the middle you will see "Startup Type" Change that to "Automatic" and click "Apply".

That's how I fixed my Service Pack 1 issue today, after 5 months of not being able to install it.

Let me know if that helps you. If you can't find Windows Module Installer; type in google "Missing Windows Module Installer" or Open a Command Prompt.

Do a dir \Windows\TrustedInstaller.exe /s

See what directories TrustedInstaller.exe is found in. There should be one in C:\Windows\servicing. If not, copy it from one of the other locations it's in.

On my Win 7 Pro X64 system. it's in

C:\Windows\servicing

C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-trustedinstaller_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_ed02252b66d7bca2

C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-Trustedinstaller_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_ef3338f363c6403c

Reboot, then start Services and see if the Windows Module Installer is listed. If yes, set it to Automatic and Start it.

I just copied and pasted that part from another forum, so I can't take any credit.
