I have a HP DM4 Windows 7-64Bit notebook PC. I'm a very techy person and keep the machine very clean. I run Avast for A/V protection, run MalwareBytes from time-to-time to check too and both are clean. The machine's use is 90% for MS Office....mostly Outlook....with some web surfing. I even use CCLeaner to keep the temp clutter out.
Yesterday MS released a bunch of updates and I have never had any issue installing before.
All ~14 updates installed except KB2799494. MS13-017: Vulnerabilities in Windows kernel could allow elevation of privilege: February 12, 2013
It gave me error code 80070057....so I downloaded MSI and ran on PC....same error. Download Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2799494) from Official Microsoft Download Center
I did some web surfing and not much out there on it. update error code 80070057 - Microsoft Community
For the above I did run SFC / SCANNOW and came back OK.
I even found this link through another thread that had the error referenced and recalled on other machines in past that .NET Framework could be corrupted and cause issues. The KB does not seem to be associated but I tried the MSI FIXIT and also .NET repair steps.....no change....still fails. Error codes
I do have Horzion RollBack RX on the machine but usually only keep a week of so of previous snapshots.
I also religiously image my HDD with Macrium Reflect.
I mention the RX install because I can set a restore point and try suggestions and return to prior state very easily.
So, I am at my wits end on where to even start.....please provide suggestions.
Your help is most appreciated.
