You just have to cull through the recommended updates to find it

Like I said the rollup will get you updated through April 2016 in one update

Worst case the way you are now beside rolling back you could have a lot of failed to install updates which has been pretty common occurrence pretty much why I lean towards installing the 3 updates manually now
Yeah, it just had 19 updates fail to install. It's supposedly configuring the other 164, or whatever it was, right now. Won't surprise me if it fails again, and reverts. If it does, I'm going to go back to yesterday, after I had cleaned the update cache in the download folder, and then just do those three.

To make sure I understand......does it give you the option to check which ones you want or don't want, just like the windows update? Just making sure.

Also......since I read all this talk about the windows update client being updated, and causing update to get stuck at searching for updates, and a bunch of other problems, would I need to update that before updating those 3 updates?

Again....hope that made sense.

Hi,
The newest update client is the 3rd update to manually install after the first two
The first and third update usually does wonders on older existing installs with update searching issues.

A clean installs starts with issues as soon as it connects to the internet windows auto installs a horrible update client at that point it's hosed until KB3020369 & KB3172605 are installed
Problem then is installing so many updates that have been now done away with.

Best solution is to start from scratch and install these three in this order KB3020369 & KB3125574 & KB3172605 unless you're just bored and gluten for punishment that is

Well, I'm almost at the end now, so once I have all the important updates, will my update client have been updated in that process, or am I still at risk for problems?

Ok I'll check. I'm not thrilled doing it this way, but it's been going on for a while, so hate to just change the whole process now.
If I get all the updates, and don't have those two, can I simply do those two at the end, manually?

I like a challenge. Sometimes.

Seriously.....I got all the important updates, and I didn't see those two. Should I install them anyway?

Also, I'd still like to try and get live essentials on there, so do you think it would hurt to reboot in safe mode, delete the windows live program files from the c drive, as well as windows live related registry keys, and try to install it one more time?

Oh, haha.....maybe you misunderstood me. I meant now that I have the updates, not start over.
Just making sure.

Ok.....I tried both, and it told me that KB3020369 was already installed. And then it told me that KB3172605 was not applicable to my computer?? Does that make sense?
