I had the same issue and uninstalling SP1 (BETA) and reinstalling SP1 resolved my issue. It should resolve yours as well.

Windows 7 Professional X64

I am having the same problem, but unable to find how to uninstall SP1 - v 721. I followed the link from airbot but was confused since it addressed update to SP1. Does that uninstall the old SP1 v 721 and install the new sp.

I followed option 2 and it worked. Apparently I had goofed and had not put in the colon between kb and the number.
Thank you all for your great assistance
