Thank you, but it didn't do anything.

When trying to run it, it told me their was a problem with one of my windows live programs, and to try removing it first.

There is no effing program to remove.

It asked me if I wanted it to run anyway. I let it.

Nothing changed.

More Microsoft BS.

But thank you for trying to help.

Hi,
Take a screen shot of your uninstall a program list
On the top right next to the question mark switch the page view to List and everything should show up on one screen shot.

No need to do that, there is nothing at all to do with Windows Live on that list. No Live Mail, no photo viewer....nothing at all. I have Windows Live Essentials on my desktop, and it's all on that list, her list has NO Windows Live anything on it.

No, Skype is not installed.

I believe I tried the offline installer, but I can't remember for sure......feels like I've tried everything. I think it's because I can't get rid of those program files off my C drive.

No, I haven't. It's a brand new SSD, and a fresh install of 7, and theses stubborn program files came with the OS, obviously. I'm always leery of those programs, more so with my wife's laptop. If anything goes wrong, she'll say, "well, you were screwing around with that cleaner program.......you get the idea. I've used that before myself, but it's been a long time. Will it show unused program files like that? I tried to remove them, and needed permission, and I changed the permission from TrustedInstaller to me, and it still wanted administrator permission, which was ridiculous. Can't help wonder if it would simply let me delete them in safe mode.

Hi,
I doubt it came with windows
It's a lot easier to clean install these days with the unofficial sp2
There are essentially 3 updates needed for a clean install of windows that will get you updated through April of 2016

KB3020369 & KB3125574 & KB3172605 all can be downloaded from the M$ catalog using internet explorer
Microsoft Update Catalog

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/...ows-7-and-8-1/
When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.

After restart you will need to ensure the built in windows update service is stopped and set to manual first too or it will conflict with the stand alone installer.

Afterwards reset the windows updates service to what it was before and update settings to your preference and check for updates
Should be only 50 or so updates left to install.

I also have all 3 updates on my OneDrive if you can't or don't want to deal with the catalog
https://1drv.ms/f/s!AsjD7o6P3KLKj2TjShn8-SumV1rr

Frankly it's just a matter of culling through updates loading Important one and making sure you excluded Recommended updates from being mixed up with them first.

Thanks for this info. I did have an issue with Windows updates after the install.

On a side note, I got the ISO from a friend that used to do some type of IT work, and I trust him( I think). He said it was Windows 7 SP1, so why would it have the windows live essentials program files on it?? Seems strange to me. Wonder if he gave me a "corrupt" ISO?

That said, I had to clean out the update cache, as it tried to configure 270 updates, and couldn't do it, and reverted everything. I followed this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpT05nwk57w

I have it back to "normal", I guess you could say......and it's back to where it's ready to download and install 282 updates.....something like that.

If I'm following you correctly, I can simply install the 3 you linked to, and I'll be almost caught up, correct?

That "Solution 1" should be performed, to update the update client??
