NOT in the history, but in the Installed list.

In the Installed Updates list, I must have overlooked one of the 3 missing updates as I see it dated 8/10. I still don't see the other 2 in the list. The 2 are KB2758857 and KB2706045.

Hello Noel,

Thank you so much for your patience and time. It seems this may have been a non-issue all along, but I feel much more confident having received your assistance.

There was an issue - which is probably what caused the two updates to appear when they shouldn't have done, and blocked WU from working properly. This was cured when you ran the CheckSUR tool.

So your visit wasn't in vain
