Don't get me wrong here, I could be quite so wrong. However, I did a fresh install, backed up my Documents, Music, Video's Pictures etc, and transfered them to my 500GB External Hard Disk. I kept getting Blue Screen's in the middle of the Windows Installation when the DVD was in my BluRay Drive, so I put it in my Samsung External DVD/R and started the installation, format my 1TB Western Digital Hard Disk, and tried reinstalling. It installed Windows successfully, so I began to install my updates, programs etc. Well, when it came to the update of Visual C++ it failed giving the same error. Then Service Pack 1 came up AFTER I disabled Windows Firewall.

Anyway, I installed SP1, then upcame the Visual C++ update again...so I attempted to reinstall it. And hey presto, it installed successfully.

All I did really was disable my Firewall, but since my old Windows Installation may have been corrupt a little.

Thank you for the added information.

Do you have problems with other CD/DVDs in the Blue-Ray? The Windows disk sure did not like it.

Another parallel with the Windows Update link I provided in post #26

Again it is good news you have it sorted out!

All other Discs work perfectly fine in the Blue-Ray drive. o.O

Make sure your firewall, and your antimalware programs are turned back on.
Give it a few days, then if your machine seems to be running okay you can mark this one solved.
