Windows 7: Win 7 SP1 fails with 800B0100 error along with 3 other updates

Windows 7 Proffessional 64 bit

None of those hits were anything massively bad, just the usual low key stuff.

Now to re-install windows :/

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit

Well, sorry it came to that, but it's probably for the best.

As an aside, when it comes to installing SP1 you might want to consider using the standalone intaller, rather than getting it through Windows Updates.

As for the other updates, I've found it beneficial just to install a few at a time rather than a whole bunch all at once.

Heh - I used to actuallly sell AVG, I liked it so much!
Not any more - it's got more and more bloated (and, I think, less effective) over the past three or four years.

MSE works well for me - and seems to be fairly light on resources. It's certainly never conflicted with anything I've thrown at it, but be careful if you put a real-time malware scanner on there as well (such as MBAM paid-for or trial), as they can have big problems.
I tried MBAM with real-time protection together with MSE in Vista once - and only once

Looking into Avira atm, the detection rate and removal seems top notch when compared to most.

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

FWIW RE Security.
AVG Anti Virus Pro {paid} is used on all computers here. {for years in fact}
Have never had a problem or intrusion ever.
No AV is 100% accurate. So much depends on the surfing habits of the user concerned.

Re Spybot. This is not recommended by the so called " experts" for Win 7.

Recommendations >
Microsoft Security Essentials.
It is free. A lot of people use & recommend it here

Also check out the free versions of SuperAntiSpyWare.
or Malwarebytes.

SpywareBlaster { free} runs happily in the background offering great protection.

Remember to include in your protection a Firewall too.
