More information: Help and Support: claimed to have resolved the issue but I still get the error.
Do you know how I can reformat the laptop considering I did not get a cd with it? I think part of the errors claim that there are "security certificate issues". It's a netbook so I don't have much on it but I do use this as my primary computer (college student). Here were the three that failed (same as before): Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (KB976932)Installation date: 2/19/2012 PMInstallation status: Failed Error details: Code 800B0100Update type: Important"If you receive Windows Update error 800B0100, it means that a file needed by Windows Update is corrupted or missing."Update for Windows 7 (KB2522422)Installation date: 2/19/2012 PMIstallation status: Failed Error details: Code 800B0100Update type: Recommended Update for Windows 7 (KB982018)Installation date: 2/19/2012 PMInstallation status: Failed Error details: Code 8007065EUpdate type: Recommended Two thoughts: 1) Don't try to install the Service Pack at the same time as other updates.
I have followed some other guides that had me turn off services, rename file from the command prompt and then turn the services back on. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I have tried restoring the system countless times, even in safe mode.
So not only is the SP1 Update failing, the tools to fix the problems that are causing the SP1 Update to fail, are failing as well. I am at my ropes end and ready to load the shotgun.

Btw, despite taking the steps above, I still wasn't able to install the other two updates! No, I meant the updates you mentioned in your OP: Update for Windows 7 (KB2522422) and Update for Windows 7 (KB982018) should be installed separately from Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (KB976932).displaylang=en&id=5842Just my .02 Two thoughts: 1) Don't try to install the Service Pack at the same time as other updates.displaylang=en&id=5842Just my .02 Just making sure- I should try to install each one of those lines from the SP1 seperately, right?I have tried every online guide I can find to fix the problem with no results. I have tried installing SP1 by itself from the windows update console. I have run the Microsoft Windows Update FIX IT tool many times.
