Windows 7: SP 1 fails to install, but no error message.

SP 1 fails to install, but no error message.

I have been working on my friend's Dell laptop running Windows 7 Home Prem. It keeps informing me that I have one critical update (Service Pack 1) when I install it, it says the update was successful, but the next time I reboot, it gives me the same critical update message. If I look in update history it shows that it has been successfully installed 4 times. If I go to system in control panel it shows that I'm running Win 7 Home Prem, but no mention of SP 1. as it does on my desktop. I hid the update to stop it from nagging all the time. I tried to update to IE 11 but it downloads, but will not install because it says I have the wrong version of Win 7. I ran sfc /scannow. It said it couldn't repair all files, but somethings do run better, just can't run the update. I have run 4 anti-virus scan with different software including RogueKiller; Nada. What's next? I've run out of smart.

Thank you for your prompt reply. Here are the issues: I had already downloaded and run the SURT. The Hotfix that it sought to install was already installed, so it would not continue and I got the following; installation encountered the error 0x80240009. I ran sfc \scannow and have attached the CBS zip. Spoke too soon. This happened:
500 - Internal server error.

Second Reply.

I rebooted the computer and ran SURT again. This time it installed; I received no error messages. I ran SFC again and am attempting to attach zip file.

500 - Internal server error.

Will attempt to zip individual files and upload.

It appears the zip file is too large.

SFC shows no problems - but we really need the CheckSUR.log file
There are a number of errors n the background CBS log data - CheckSUR may give us a handle on them.

Hmm - nothing amiss there

Please upload the C:\Windows\windowsupdate.log file - then try this....

Open an Elevated COmmand Prompt, and run the following command
Code:
 
 
dism /online /remove-package /packagename:Package_for_KB976932~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.1.1.17514
 
.
Once complete, reboot, and then post the new windowsupdate.log file - and run SFC and CheckSUR again, and post the CBS and CheckSUR log files.

Then download the SP1 installer from Download Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) from Official Microsoft Download Centre and run that (make sure that you get the right one!)

then post the new CBS.log file, and the new windowsupdate.log file.
