Gentlemen, I have a severe problem that I am unable to re-solve, and that is Updating my Win 7 64-bit to SP1. I have tried all possible methods outlined on Microsoft's Website, even downloading and burning the ISO DVD. It's quite clear to me either a virus or spyware is stopping the updating process. I started a thread on Seven Forums to resolve this, but after some time they recommended I try here. For all the details I refer you to that post. http://www.sevenforums.com/performance-maintenance/401663-repairing-corrupt-files-found-sfc.html

 

So I've attached my two FarBar text files to this post, in the hopes someone can lead me to a resolution. I should add if this is indeed a virus, it's a quite sophisticated one, because no Virus Detection software has been able to find it so far.

SOLVED**
I fixed this by inserting my Win 7 CD and choosing Upgrade. It repaired all my Windows files while keeping my Programs in place. (I didn't know you could do that.........my bad) Anyways, all the corrupt files are fixed, I'll now able to update Windows in the normal fashion, and I have SP1 installed.
Thanks to all of you who offered assistance. Sorry to have wasted your time on something I could have fixed on my own, had I known the solution was there. Now I know!!!
For any who are curious, it wasn't a virus it was corrupted files from installing faulty RAM. Thanks God, I back-up everything in Triplicate.
Anyways, safe journeys............and I'll see you guys next time catastrophe strikes!!
