When installing Service Pack 1 on Windows 7 installations, you may enounter the following error code in the \Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log: 0x8004a029

This is due to the filter limit in Windows 7. To resolve this, do the following:
Windows 7 is hard coded to allow 14 filter drivers, but the following registry sets the limit to 8 by default. You can adjust the amount up to 14 or delete this key and it will be set to max of 14.
Remove some filter driver from ncpa.cpl –> Chose network Properties –> Select and filter –> Uninstall
**Note** Not all networking filters are listed under ncpa.cpl, so application may need to be completely uninstalled (i.e. personal firewalls)
