Hi,
Only if you tried to install the wrong bit update I posted both 32 and 64 bit versions earlier.

Hi,
Maybe it has already installed ?
It was reissued yesterday too as well as back in July I believe.
Look at your updated history
That one or KB3179573

When they're already installed, it states that, but I'll check out that other number.

It told me that KB3179573 was also not applicable to my computer. Strange.

Everything seems to be ok on my wife's laptop, in that I got all the updates, and they all installed, so I'm hoping I'm ok with that one.

Now my desktop is doing weird stuff, and my boot drive has 2GB left on it, so I may be buying a larger SSD, and reinstalling 7 on it, or just try 10, not sure. I can't even do system restore on mine now.
I get this

A Windows 7 drive should have 10 to 15% free space or many things will not work properly.

Yeah, I'm going to replace it soon. That's not the one that I was trying to install Windows Essentials on though.

I did exactly the same thing, and tried to only install Mail and Photo Viewer. It would not install them. It's really strange, if you ask me.

Upon searching, it is a very common problem. I personally think it's because the program files are still on the C Drive, as well as some registry keys, but you'd think that wouldn't matter, but I think it does.

I'm tempted to start it in safe mode, delete those files/keys, and then try it.
