Uninstall it if it is and then try updating again.
What I would suggest is Uninstalling All Programs you don't need or don't want anymore through Add/Remove Programs
Do this by going to
Start and then to Control Panel
Click Add/Remove Programs
On the top of the window you will see a box that says something like Show Updates. Make sure to click that and let the window populate as it may take a minute or two.
Look through the Microsoft updates for the above update and if there then uninstall it.
Restart once you have the update you don't need uninstalled.
Be careful not to remove anything needed by your computer, some of which you may be unfamiliar with the name,

The reason I ask is this update can only be done using a administrative account.

I believe this is the same error message that I was receiving when I attempted to install SP1.
I tried a bunch of things like disabling my Anti-Virus program & Firewall, but still had no luck installing it that way.
The thing that did work for me was to manually download the installation file for SP1.
Visit this link here: http://windows.micro...ice-pack-1-sp1# and scroll down to where you see: "Downloading and installing SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center".
Click on it, and follow the instructions it has listed there.
Please be sure to post back, and let us know how that worked out for you, and if it worked for you.

My computer's been giving me the bsod and cutting out on me. This happened a couple of months ago and I narrowed it down to an update which hadn't installed properly.
I suspect this time it is a similar problem. I've spotted that the windows 7 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) has failed. I have checked that my log in account has admin rights. I have then tried the updates again through Windows Update and also by following the instructions on the link (above).
Both have failed. I get Error code 80070005 on Windows Update - but have not found any useful information to help me with this.
If any one could help then please msg back. I'm in my final year with two weeks before my project hand in!!!
Thanks for all the posts so far!
