    I am trying to install SP1 but get message"failure configuring SP. The function attempted to use a name that is reserved by another transaction. error_transactional_conflict )0x80071A90). A Micrsoft search tells me to install Windowsupdate standalone installer, this only gives error 0xc8000222. I have tried turning off Avast firewall, running the trouble shooter but nothing works.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Give This a try

    If your computer is having problems finding and installing operating system updates, try using a Windows Update troubleshooter to fix the problem. It makes sure that your computer is connected to the Internet, and checks to see whether your network adapter and Windows Update services are running correctly.

    Open the Windows Update troubleshooter by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under System and Security, click Fix problems with Windows Update.

    Thanks for the reply. I have tried the trouble shooter several times, it states that the problem is fixed, but I still get the error.
