Windows 7 SP 1 Will not install, error message included

This message differed from the other threads I read on here.

The volume for a file has been externally altered so that the opened file is no longer valid

Error: ERROR_FILE_INVALID(0x800703ee)

Tried windows update, tried manually dling it but same thing came up. I tested the hardware and it came up with no errors however this computer does act a bit funny so I think the tests came back wrong. Any suggestions? Windows 7 HP 32bit. Intel Processor.

Thank you and sorry for 2 questions in a row, Ive never had such issues with 7 before I thought i was almost a good operating system!!! :-P
