    Check for Windows Updates and let me know which KB numbers show up that need installed.

    Re: [7SP1HomePre x64] Windows update Error Code 80073701

    OK so I checked for updates and the KB2952664 was available along with Microsoft Security Essentials and I tried them and they both installed successfully, the essentials always were able to install with no problem. The only one that had the problem was the rollup and the system update. I have no idea why the system update now correctly installed, the only thing I did was did a disk clean and installed and ran CCleaner for the registry. I ran those this morning and restarted my computer which had the configuring windows update at 100% for quite some time before letting me onto my desktop.
