Thanks everyone for the help. Finally got Win 7 Ultimate SP1 installed. The only trouble now is, apart from updating IE to v.11 and an update to the WU Agent itself...not a single update will download.
I think MS are sulking since all that bad press.
Well I hate to tell them, this isn't helping.

There is a rollup update available that includes most of the updates since SP1.
You can read about it here:
Simplifying updates for Windows 7 and 8.1

I would create a backup image now that you have a clean reinstall.

Yes, but have you tried it....as with all those types of updates, it starts up by polling for updates....which usually ends up nowhere. However, will give it a try again.
Thanks.

No, i haven't used it.
There's over 190 posts in that thread if you want to read what others say about it.

I don't see a need for it as my systems are up to date.
I would try it if i did a clean install.

There's a lot of threads and posts about problems with Win 7 updates.

Here is a recent update that "is suppose" to help Win 7 updates.
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3161647

I installed this update and it hasn't caused me any problems.
I don't know if it really helps.

I won't know until the next Patch Tuesday updates are published.
The only problem i have is Checking for updates takes a long time after PT updates are published.
Other than that W7 WU works the way it should - a minute or 2.

Ah, thanks for that last link.......we shall see how that helps.
It's going to take me weeks to get back to where I was, software-wise as I am going from memory regarding what I had installed......!
Serves me right for a) not doing backups and b) not printing out a Belarc Advisor report.

All is well in Paradise. But first I ran the reg file that blocks any Win 10 auto-upgrade....just in case.
Perhaps I should have gone with the original installation that I thought was broken, using my slipstreamed disk that contained the April 2016 Rollup.
It would have saved much of the below amount of updates.

Let me open by saying I'm too old to understand most of the jargon and directions found in a technical forum like this. I've been trying to fix this myself for about two weeks, and have made so many changes, I've probably made a complete hash of it. The latest thing I did was to attempt a...
