Quite often the shorter the advice, the better the advice.

Please read the link given to you by Jaycee.

In the future, if you want to know if a program is still running, then:

And now I see there are more updates 23 of them I have to install. What else I can do to fix this mess.
Thanks again,

Please post your C:\Window\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.persist.log, and I shall see what can be done

Thanks a lot!

Windows 7 Home Premium x64-based

Here's what I did so far:
1) Ran System Readiness Update tool three times.
2) Ran Windows Update after above Step 1. I get the same error code as shown in this Thread subject line.

I have attached my CheckSUR.log and CheckSUR.persist.log.

If you are still having failed updates you might want to try this. Turn off automatic updates completely, restart computer. Then turn automatic updates back on shut down restart, and then try updates again. Years ago when I used windows vista this was a simple method to clear out updates that had failed and removed any updates in limbo.

Niemero will be back with an excellent analysis, but one thing to check.

Do you have a valid copy of Win 7?

Has your Win 7 been "authenticated'?

Win + Pause/Break key | bottom right, Windows Activation |
you should see Windows is activated with a "genuine" logo.

Win is the key with the wavy microsoft flag.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

The solution is to use the "system update rediness tool" offered by Microsoft


What is the System Update Readiness Tool?

(Try What is the System Update Readiness Tool? if the above link is broken by posting)

There are several flavors, for both Vista and Win-7, 32 & 64 bit so be sure to pick the correct one.

I have experienced this problem myself - especially after doing a "surgical virus removal" where I had to (in essence) slash-and-burn my way thorugh the O/S. Running this tool has all but universally solved these problems.

Note that running this tool can take hours - many hours - depending on how barf'd up the update store is. If it takes a very long time the first run, you may wish to run it several times until it finishes relatively quickly (in about five minutes or less).

Microsoft also recommends running this tool periodically as a "maintanance" activity to ensure the update database remains consistent.

Try it and post results.

What say ye?

I posted a new thread the other day where my system hangs after a power outage during an update install. you know when it says Do Not Turn Off ,,,
Well mybattery was bad and i had a power outage so it TURNED OFF! lol
Now I can't see the updates in the control panel and the hang has to be related to the update. I am going to try to SRT also! Hope it works I will Post back...
