    Unable to download & install M/S updates

    Since installing windows 7, I guess I have a corrupt file in windows somewhere. I receive all windows and Microsoft patches but my computer only installs some. The main denial is SP1. I tried the system update readiness tool (KB947821) for win 7 X 64 to no avail. The error messages are 800B0100 and 8007065E.
    Would appreciate some guidance please.

    If sfc doesn't sort it, there is one easy way, which I had to go with my own desktop - a non destructive windows 7 repair install.

    SFC scannow

    Thanks for the replies guys,
    I did 2 scannows which were clear
    I am still having the problem but it seems to be limited to SP1 for win 7 X 64 only.
    Should I try and insert the win 7 CD and try a repair, if so would appreciate any hints & comments
    Cheers
    Les

    The repair install I suggested is explained here: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html

    It can be a slow process, depending on the number of apps and it can even seem it gets stuck at some point, but it works and you can apply SP1 immediately after completion. It was the only way to solve it, for me.

    Ruirib,
    Thanks - I think I will use a Techman to do this re-install as I would probably make a mess of it & bugger the computer
    Your help is appreciated never-the-less

    flyfisher, wish I were there with you! I love to do installs/virus cleaning. My two specialties.

    The secret is all in the preparation. Having the proper drivers (preferably the latest), pre-formatting the drive to keep that 100MB partition form installing. One must have a game plan when doing a clean install. Having access to a good forum helps too, as we all can run into a snag at times.

    When you get that computer back, be sure to back it up, that way, you'll always have a good install to revert to when needed.

    Best of Luck,
    Cat
