Windows 7: W7 SP1 Installation fails on Error# 80070057

W7 SP1 Installation fails on Error# 80070057

Hello -

I used Windows Update to try the SP1 update, it updated all except the SP1 package. I tried to update and then turned off M Security Essentials, spent an hour looking for the version number, but have downloaded all W7 updates ever offered, so expect it is up to date. Scanned for the Essentials update, but not found on the MS download site.

I ran the W7 Update TroubleShooter, downloaded and ran the W7 Windows Updater system checker and checked the two logs generated, no errors or problems there.

Went into manual mode, went to the download site, pre-installed the 4826 update and downloaded the W7 SP1 file, same error message, 80070057.

No other malware or other programs running, it is a recent Sony Vaio laptop, 8 GB memory, no weirdness when monitoring install with Task Manager.

My other 4 computers updated SP1 with no problems.

Any ideas considered,

Windows 7
Problem solved

I installed SP-1 successfully with the following procedure:

1. Reinstalled Windows 7 rebooted
2. During re-install, software reported: Net Framework V. 4 needs to be repaired
3. Was repaired by install program, rebooted
4. Checked services.msc, found Windows Updater running
5. Ran 64 bit Software Update Readiness Tool rebooted
6. Ran 64 bit Windows SP-1 Standalone Installer rebooted
7. Restarted Windows Security Essentials

Evidently there is some setting in the registry or some minor corrupted file in the existing W7 installation that is not found by running the Software Update Readiness tool that generates a wide variety of error messages and cannot be fixed by the various registry fixers. I sent a my log files from the failed installs along to Microsoft tech support, hopefully they can update the SURT and the SP-1 Automatic Update to fix the problem. Otherwise the most time-saving approach is to do a re-install that leaves the files and installed programs intact.
