Tried Downloading And Installing It Manually?

Click on the link below, which will take you to the Microsoft Update Catalog, and you can select the downloadable file for Windows 7. Click on the "Download" button and download the full offline installer for your computer. (It's a large file, about 152 MB, but you should be able to download it easily if you have a fairly fast internet connection.) Download the file to your computer's desktop, double click on the file once it's there and let it install.

Hope this helps.
