There are a million and one possibilities. Would you rather spend a week racking your brain or just get it done in a few hours?

If a SP won't install, something is wrong somewhere. You may never find it. What if registry cleaners or driver uninstallers were used? I'm not saying the OP has used any of these, but many people feel the need to.

Hi, Gary1951.

Actually, I understand that having Language Packs installed can cause aC000009A error on install. The solution being to uninstall any language packs.

I understand your frustration and I'm not making light of yours or others problems.
Venting here is fine but we are not Microsoft nor affiliated with them.

We are just a group of volunteers trying to help everyone find the answers.

If you want to make a complaint to Microsoft feel free to pay them a visit.

We will continue to try to help everyone to the best of our knowledge though at this time it is not sufficient to fix everyones problems- YET!

It at least isn't a lack of trying to assist.

Hopalong, I realise that this is not a Microsoft affiliated site and I value the support that sites such as this give,I can only hope though that someone at Microsoft does monitor the problems that are cropping up everywhere with this one update.
The last frustration I had with SP1 beta install was caused by IE9 beta once deleted SP1 installed. Have tried deleting IE9 RTM but no luck this time.

Wish we could solve all the issues.

As you have read the many threads and posts it is a big mess for many people.

Some people think we are affiliated or are part of MS. I wan't sure if you knew.

Thanks for the kudos for all our members. I gladly accept on their behalf.
Greatly appreciated!

Dear jd,
I must say sorry for not posting my comments much earlier! Iam leaning towards(like the leaning tower of Pisa) Electrotune 1200's suggestion of a clean re-install. But let me put forth my small opinion :

1) Your computer does not have any malware(yet to scan with HOUSECALL)

2) You have installed the Windows update readiness tool

3) You have patiently tried all the suggestions we offered you regarding download via the route of WINDOWS UPDATE!

4) Now, you have almost prepared the ground for installing via the Microsoft Download center,except for two things!

A) Install Windows Update KB2454826 (This "may" be important) click on --->start---->type " View installed updates" in the search box, and click---->Enter.Then search whether Update for Microsoft Windows (KB2454826) is listed. In rare situations the absense of this update will cause your kind of problem! Courtesy : Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 from the Microsoft Download Center

B) update the drivers (which anyway is a good thing to do), but let us keep it on the backburner for a while!

Cheer up! I searched for this quote with tenacity ! It was said by General Doughlas McArthur,one of the greatest American Generals ever(Second world war) " “Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.

I wanted to become a specialist in Diabetology after MD in Internal Medicine and desired to study for it in Australia. I was short on dollars and long on gritty perseverence and wrote the entrance test 4 times until i succeeded to get a percentile which gave me a scholarship for six months there in the New Castle University.

Please spend 5-10 minutes for searching this update : KB2454826 in -->Control Panel-->System And security-->Windows Update-->view installed updates.

If you can download the above update via windows update or if it is alreay installed, you should confidently try this other tack of downloading using the Microsoft download center

Best wishes,
Sreedhav

Dear HopalongX,
A site "almost"(b'cause we have WIN.8 and Vista forums too) dedicated to Windows 7 is like the Kohinoor Diamond embedded in Her Excellency Queen Elizabeth's crown!

I have been really active only since 2-3 months! I liked the signature tune (your's too) of Brink,our Admin.-->There are no dumb questions, only those who don't ask(along those lines)!

That's a reassuring signature tune indeed!

Regards,
Sreedhav

After deleting SoftwareDistribution Folder SP1 will partially download from Windows Update. Stops at 33% and gives same error 800b0100.
Strangely standalone installer still does nothing just gives same error.
ps I have done every suggestion put forward sofar re install problems.
My issue is that unless this is resolved without reinstalling the same issues will arrive down the track with other SP's or major updates.

I have no idea. I have never known or seen so many problems with a service pack before. If it's just a series of hotfixes which I was led to believe there shouldnt be this many problems.
