Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hello Everyone, Can some PLEASE HELP.

I have a Lenovo G560 laptop with Win 7. I have tried to download Win 7 SP1 from the MS download center and although it goes through the intallation process it doesn't seem to get installed.
I have read the reasons why SP1 may not install and I have checked each and every reason and neither applied to me.
The reason I want SP1 is to upgrade to IE 11 which required that I have Win 7 SP1 inorder to upgrade my laptop.
Does anyone have Win 7 SP1 on a DVD? Or how can I get around upgrading my IE without having SP??

I have fair knowledge of a pc and understand but I am not a programmer.

Office XP Service Pack 3 Update Failed
I am running Windows 7. For some reason the list of updates includes an update for Office XP Service Pack 3. However, this update always fails. Why does Windows 7 include an update for Office XP. All the other updates install fine.
