My Windows 7 computer can not install the Windows 7, Service pack 1 (KB976932) for the last one and half years. It failed hundreds of times. I purchased McAfee software and now I need to install it, but it can not install the software. I called McAfee and they told that I need to have the service pack install, so McAfee can be installed after that. Please, let me know how I can install the service pack KB976932. Also, how important is this service pack 1 to run OS properly? Do I need it really?

Please run sfc /scannow command in elevated command prompt and analyze the BS log file,

Download and run System Update Readiness Tool and check that fixes the problem .(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821).

After installing SURTool run below command in elevated command prompt.

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

If you've been running Windows 7 for that long without the ServicePack, and you didn't even have an antivirus utility installed (which seems to be the case as you are only now trying to install McAfee), your system will probably be full of malware and compromised.

I very strongly suggest you do a complete reinstallation, then download and install the ServicePack, then run all windows-updates and install your AV utility. It will probably take much longer to clean out all the infections.

Yes, it is probably just like Rindi suggests. You need to become aware of the importance of updates. Those are more important for overall security than an Anti Virus solution.
