Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
Hey there!
I downloaded the hot fix update and did sfc scan with no integrity violations.
But Im stummped!
Do I just take screen shots of every error code from update history and post them? I read the tutorial. But, it's sort of confusing.
Also, I do not know what cab files are. I do not know how to zip cab files. And, I do not know how to remove cab files either.
Thanks!

If you follow the instructions in the tutorial, I think they go through everything you need to know
As far as zipping CAB files is concerned, just right-click on it the same as any other file, and select 'Send to... > Compressed file'

Once you have the fully-compressed copy of the CBS folder on your desktop (the zip file) double-click on it to open it in Windows Explorer You can then delete the older files inside, until the entire zip file shows as being less than 8MB.

K thanks.
How do I find C:\Windows\Logs in step 4?
It reads in the tutorial on step 4-1 to navigate to the following folder:
C:\Windows\Logs.
But, it doesn't say how to find it. How am I supposed to navigate to it, if I don't know how to get to it?

I have the zipped CBS file icon on my desktop. But I'm really confused about the deleting older files to 8 mb part. Would you please tell me which older files I need to delete to make a 8 mb, zipped CBS file? And is there a certian way I need to delete them?
Thank you

Every CBSPersist file has a timestamp - simply look for the oldest one, highlight it, and hit the Del key (and confirm on request).
Then check the overall size of the folder.
