Windows 7: Many but not all updates failing on Windows 64-bit

Both of the deletes fail because the file is being used by another process. I'll try maybe booting into safe mode and doing the delete.

Here's a screenshot of the delete attempt.

Interesting - it ran through without a problem when I tested it.

Actually I did a reboot and tried again and it went through without a problem. What should I do to test whether it helped? I'm hoping it did since something was clearly holding the files...

Thanks,

Try the SP1 install again (reboot again first to allow the system to update anything it needs to)

{sigh} Still no good. Tricky little bugger:-)

Seems like there should be something somewhere on the ERROR_TRANSACTIONAL_CONFLICT(0x80071a90) - I think it briefly says some like it "tried to use a name reserved for something else" - poor paraphrase, but that disappears before I can capture it.

Thanks for your continued help.

The big problem is that I suspect that if I were to recommend a repair install, you'd run into the same error
I'll do some more hunting later - I'm occupied, currently.

No problem - thanks Noel. My company is now going to order me a new laptop that should be here in a couple of weeks. If there doesn't seem to be a path forward, I can just wait for that. If you do think of something, it would be great because of the performance issues.

Thanks,

The obvious thing is a Recovery back to factory settings (a flatten and rebuild, in effect) - but that will consume a fair amount of time as you reinstall the apps and back up/restore data.
