I am getting error code 80246007 when I try to install SP1 on my Windows 7 installation
Not a lot of help on the MS website BITS, which I have and is OK
There is someone on the web offering a download to fix it, but the website looks anonymous, and could be malware
Looks like 80246007 is some wort of general code.Does anyone know any more

I would recommend turning off any third party firewall you have running, packet filtering is a common issue when BITS download is failing!

First run system readiness tool

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=44e15787-66b0-4e9c-9c3b-1fc9ea40f69f

It will create checksur.log. Upload the checksur.log in EE for analysis.

 The website that is offering the fix might be selling some software. I wont recommend buying such software. Could be a spyware.

Windows update issue are easy to fix .

After running system readiness tool restart the computer and then try installing service pack 1.

If any windows 7 updates issues are not getting resolved...then boot to desktop..insert the windows 7 disc...launch setup...select upgrade option...this will repair windows 7 operating system .

You will not loose any data or programs after the repair process...after performing repair you will be able to install all the updates.

Repair install just repairs the operating system....also called as inplace upgrade.
