@sygnus21
if you go into windows update view update history right click on the update you have error with
click view details a window should pop up with the error
click get help with this error
then another window opens then click on click to open the windows update troubleshooter
run the troubleshooter and see if this helps (watch the promps)

I got it now. Not sure if it was a server issue or MSE. I disabled MSE and the download completed and the SP installed. I'll chuck it up to a server issue.

Anyway all is good now

Once it got going it was pretty quick.

W7 64bit Home Premium:

Installed it today, and I had 2 total lockups (first 2 ever) followed by a BSOD. I restored my machine and all is good again. Also I had this problem: SP1 Intel Graphics Problem

I shouldn't have tried to fix what wasn't broken.

I think (hope) it was a server issue. Even though things got better once I disabled MSE I think it was just a coincidence that it worked when MSE was disabled - I hope that's the case cause - Windows 7 SP1 RTM Can Break Some Programs

Anyway no smoking components so......

With my line speed, the x64 download will finish in about 12 hours. Hopefully when it's done and installed, my problem of not being able to install Internet Explorer 9 RC will be solved...

Are you running an older 1.0 program version of MSE?

This article mentions the older 1.0 version MSE could cause a problem. Wonder if the newest version would cause any issue either..

Oh. Nevermind, see you were already aware of that particular issue.

To answer the question - No.... I have version 2.0.657.0.

Anyway I've re-enabled MSE and there are no strange issues as of yet. It's obviously too early to tell. We'll see what happens as I still think it was a server issue on Microsoft's side.

BTW I just completed a couple of levels in Dead Space 2 and didn't run into any "gaming" issues with SP1 installed. Just thought I'd toss that out for those concerned. Will test out Crysis later.

That's my tidbit for now

I clicked on the checkbox when it appeared in Windows Update to download and install SP1. Rebooted it when the initial work was done then walked away for about 20 minutes while it did its thing and came back and SP1 was successfully installed. As I expected, nothing really changed and everything looked and worked just about the same.
