Windows 7: Win7 SP1 "successfully" installed but keeps showing in Windows Update

25 Mar 2015   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64 Windows 10 Pro x64

Yes, I am also wondering why Service Pack 1 is just being attempted now ?

Please shed some light on how long Windows 7 has been installed on this machine.

Hey guys,

wanted to let you know that I managed to get SP1 installed successfully and the problem was.......

AVG Anti-virus. All i had to do was disable the virus shield before rebooting and it worked like a charm. I am embarrassed that it took me 2 weeks to try that.

Thanks anyway.
