Your error is (visible only in CBS.log and in WindowsUpdate.log)

Your CheckSur.log file is OK.SFC tool don't report any problem too.

SFCdetails. sfc.txt

Nobody know how to exactly fix this problem... Installing SP1 Fails

Try below things:

1.Run this tool Repair & Fix Windows Updates with Fix WU Utility | The Windows Club and "MS Fix It" in aggressive mode from this site:How do I reset Windows Update components?

2.Run cmd.exe with administrative previlliges (right click on cmd.exe and choose "run as administrator") and type:

fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\

+ restart

If still nothing help try reset transaction manually

Run system in "safe mode with command prompt" (see here Advanced Boot Options)

and type:

cd %systemroot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine

press ENTER

attrib -a -s -h *

press ENTER

del *.blf

Let's go at this a much easier way.

First before I spin any wheels.

This is imperative.

Run malwarebtes. I don't care what you have done before or what marvelous av programs you have used or are using.

Run Malware Bytes. Let me know the results.

Why am I so insistent? Years of experience helping people with unusual problems. It is absolutely essential that certain possible problems are eliminated.

1. Download MalwareBytes. Malwarebytes
2. Disconnect from the Internet.
3. Disable your present antivirus software and firewall.
4. Remove your present antivirus software and firewall.
5. Install and run the MalwareBytes Quick Scan (remove any bad guys). 3min 29secs on my laptop.
6. Reconnect to Internet.
7. Update MalwareBytes.
8. Run malwarebytes quick scan again.(remove any bad guys). 3min 38secs on my laptop.
9. Run MalwareBytes full scan. 16min 8secs on my laptop. With large,full disk ~2hours.

Now you can reenable your present av/firewall software.

Very important. What is your present AV software? Is your present AV software up-to-date?
