Did you get SP 1 from the Microsoft Download site?  and did you get the correct SP 1?  32 vs 64-bit and correct CPU?

The message above does not look like a Windows message.

Uninstall KB958830 if it is installed on your system from View Installed Updates ( Programs and Features ).
Reboot the machine
Disable antivirus software
Install SP1. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15090/windows-7-install-service-pack-1-sp1

I think the link is https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842
Also verify the download with SHA or MD5 to ensure that download is not corrupted

with all of the above being stated i remember a major problem for windows 7 sp1 was a file check error where it would check your hdd with a quick drive scan for errors or bad sectors. You may want to run a HDD quick check also...

TS4Bm, I am tried your sfc /scannow solution until id did not find anymore errors. I did not try to download sfcfix. The update fail again. I am going to try two of the other solutions posted and if those work then I will reformat the PC.

Nothing works. It is ok to use a Windows 7 SP1 (the full O/S CD but at the SP1 level) and run a windows upgrade?
John

One of the steps here was a Windows 7 Repair Install. If truly nothing works, then back up the system, and install Windows 7 fresh. Update drivers and the OS and then install your applications and recover your data.
Ramin

Yes, Windows 7  In-place upgrade with or without SP1 might fix this problem and if not you have to do a clean Install.

As per John & Ramin's comments, yes that is fine. Either upgrade if it allows for this, or run repair from it.

Everything failed, a fresh install is the solution.
