Microsoft recently released the Service Pack 1 for Windows 7. When installing this through Windows Update it would keep failing and give me “code 80200053.” After looking around for a bit I found a solution that fixed this.
- Go to the Start menu and type “services.msc” and press enter.
- Find “Windows Update” service, right click on it and click “Restart.”
- Go to the Start menu and type “Windows Update” and try installing the service pack.
