Failure configuring service pack

I have upgraded my laptop from Vista to Windows 7 and since installed 91 updates. Service Pack 1 installs but then fails to configure. I have tried so many different ways to sort this, all without success. I even tried to install and configure in 'Safe Mode' but it made no difference. I cannot install my printer drivers and I am hoping it is merely because of the lack of SP1 being installed. I'd appreciate any help with this. Thanks.

Have you got Trusteer Rapport Software on your PC, If you have Uninstall it and try SP1 again, Then Re-Install Trusteer Rapport.

go to your printer manufacturers website ,and check to see if they have windows 7 drivers , but I would not hold my breath ,windows 7 has rendered most previous printers obsolete .

Brilliant Lazarus the 2nd. I uninstalled that programme and have now installed SP1. Thanks for that advice.
