Hello to everybody;
I am trying to install the Windows 7 Service Pack update to a friend of mine
but, every time I always get at before the ending of the procedure, the
error mentioned above;
I have also tried to manually download and install the update directly from
Microsoft web site and to follow the steps indicated there but it always
fails....
Someone has already had this problem and found a different solution ?

Solution: 1) NEVER allow automatic updates on any software (with
possible exception of _good_ AV), 2) Never do manula update on anythig
(else) until getting _positive_ feedback from stung users.
Above is eXplicitly pointed to M$ junk.

While there are occasional problems with windows and other updates, they
are in the minority. It's also not uncommon to find that update problems
occurred due to something the user did or didn't do in the
past.

The SP1 service pack is also available as a separate file.
You can run the Readiness tool if you want - I ran it just
for fun, and it was happy with what it found (apparently).
And then I did my SP1 with a file from here.

The last two files in the list, are the ones of interest.
Doing SP1 this way, uses nine times as much download data,
as doing it from Windows Update, but it's a lot more
satisfying when it works on the first try :)
