Windows 7: Windows Update not detecting Windows 7 SP1

Windows Update not detecting Windows 7 SP1

Hi

I'm new to the boards so hullo to everyone.

Basically when I tried to install the Emsisoft Anti-Malware program I found out SP1 for Windows 7 hadn't installed (program would not install without this; obviously double-checked via control panel etc, and it indicated just Windows 7 was installed).

I have also checked for updates via Windows Update a couple of times after this to be sure, but wasn't detecting that SP1 wasn't installed.

Has anyone experienced this / know the most appropriate solution?

I understand you can manually download SP1, but after looking at the particular page on the Microsoft page, I'm not sure which of the options to select. I have Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.

Many thanks in advance for any advice / suggestions...

Many thanks Quickdraw, appreciated. Excuse the stupid question, for Windows Pro 7 64 bit, is the correct option windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe (second option from bottom / the 903MB one)?

Please confirm if SP1 is installed {or not} via

1. Search > Winver

or

2. Control Panel > System & Security > System > View basic info about your computer

What does yours say?
