    Cannot install SP1 in Win-7

    As I posted earlier my Win7-SP1 is installed successfully from a downloaded ISO file from MS. For some reason - which I don't understand - I was able to get over the hang ups by reducing the RAM from 4 GB to 2 GB and then restoring the memory back to 4GB after the OS was installed and running...

    Cannot install SP1 in Win-7

    I don't see the banner that Rich mentioned about enabling Activex. When I open the Tools tab in IE I see that there is a selection for "Activex filter". After putting a check mark on it the result is unchanged. I just get a blue color full page with a world globe as an icon and no other window...

    Cannot install SP1 in Win-7

    I went to the link Kemical pointed to and go down to the Update Catalog link and get the same blue color page with the earth globe as a logo and nothing else Its possible that I did not get the Activex working. Can you tell me how to add Activex to IE-11. Thanks

    Cannot install SP1 in Win-7

    Kemical I am thoroughly confused. I opened the MS Update Catalog. It was a blank blue page with only the update logo and nothing else. I am using IE ver 11.0. and opened Active X and am running as an Administrator. How do I select the updates from this convenient roll up?

    When I put this computer together years ago, The RAMs I used were twin Corsair 2X2048-6400. 800 MHz as called out in the ASUS P5N E-SLI mobo handbook. I didn't know enough to look deeper for matching them. My computer properties show a 4.0 GB RAM with 3.50 GB useable. Now that Win-7 SP1 is...

    Cannot install SP1 in Win-7

    I finally got the SFC /scannow working with no errors, but I still.had the usual problem as before. i.e. halfway through the installation I would get a message that the update to SP1 failed. I went through the motions of trying to install Win-10 directly like Bigbearjed. But it would not let...

    Hi kemical I'm still having problems getting the win-7 updated to win-7 SP1. I've tried SFC Scannow a couple of times and it always stops at 39% with a message that it found a problem that was not repairable. I repeated the SFC Scannow in Safe Mode and that also stopped at 39% with the message...

    Cannot install SP1 in Win-7

    Taking the cue from Kemical I downloaded a 64 bit Win-7 from the link he suggested. I presume it will come with SP-1 & the latest updates. It is in the ISO format. I downloaded IMGBURN to do this conversion. Fortunately, I scanned it with Malwarebytes before running it. It detected a Trojan...

    Cannot install SP1 in Win-7

    Here is the report for the two checks kemical suggested earlier. I ran the chkdsk /r. It completed the 5 stages and at the end very quickly scrolled through the command screen and restarted the computer. I assumed that meant that it did not find any problems. Next, I did the sfc /scannow. After...
