Windows 7: Problem updating to SP1 x64 update

Problem updating to SP1 x64 update

I have three computers running Windows 7 and I cannot get them to update to the SP1 update that is available. One pc is Windows 7 Pro x64, and the other two are Windows 7 Ultimate x64. The update is Windows 7 Service Pack 1 x64-based Systems (KB976932). I click install update and then it will set there and show "Downloading 1 update (87.2MB total, 15% complete) and that is as far as it goes. It will eventually error out with this error message Code 80072EE2.

Anyone got any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks!

If you receive Windows Update error 80072ee2 while checking for updates, the Windows Update servers might be experiencing an unusually high number of requests for updates. Close Windows Update, wait 10 to 15 minutes, and then run Windows Update again. You can also wait for Windows Automatic Update to run at its next scheduled time.

If you continue to receive error 80072ee2, you might need to add some Windows Update website addresses to your firewall's exceptions or "allow" list.


To add the Windows Update websites to a firewall exceptions list


Windows Firewall ships with this version of Windows and should already include these sites in the exceptions list. If you use a different firewall, refer to the software publisher's help to see how to add these websites to your firewall exceptions list:

http://*.update.microsoft.com


https://*.update.microsoft.com


http://download.windowsupdate.com

Thanks, but it's not a firewall issue. Windows update has updated fine on all other updates, it just will not do this one update for some reason. Maybe SP1 is a huge file and if their servers are getting to many hits, maybe it times out. But I have seen this issue on all three of my Windows 7 computers, just this one update.

Just hang in their and don't do anything on your computer. You must stay with your computer because it will need your input if it ask. It took me a little over a hour to get SP-1.
