The only thing that the WU log shows is that it's repeatedly attempted to install the following update -
Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2909921), and that the install is actually refused by the user at shutdown.

Try using a Clean Boot process and installing the update that way..

Did a clean boot - same problem.

Did another clean boot, this time looking for a way to NOT decline the update, and I didn't find anything.

Clean boot doesn't help.

What I don't understand is: How could I decline the update if I wanted to? Where is this option offered? I never knowingly declined any updates.

What is interesting is that you've isolated the problem. I never knew that the user decline was a real error because I never saw a log without it!

It sounds like this could be due to some kind of a setting somewhere - perhaps in the registry. Unfortunately I have no idea where

You say you're using 'website blocking' - who from? it's possible that there's something there that is triggering the cancel, possibly by preventing internal links.
Is it just a simple HOSTS file, or something more complex?

Let's check something - please run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt, and post the results.

NET START TRUSTEDINSTALLER
SC QC TRUSTEDINSTALLER
SC QUERYEX TRUSTEDINSTALLER


Here are some instructions to make life easier
1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.
2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.
3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.

By the way: I don't knowingly have any website blocking set up, and I don't *think* I said that I do.

Presumably it's just part of MBAM you were referring to?

all the above output is normal.

I'll have to do some thinking about this

Ooops - sorry - MBAM and Windows Defender are indeed running, but the problem occurs whether they are or not.

Just for drills, I set Windows Update to "Update Automatically" at a fixed time, then shut down. At this point, auto updating kicks in, whatever time you've set. I figured that maybe this time, windows itself would be the 'user', and maybe it wouldn't decline the update.

Wrong - update failed.

But there was an additional line in the WUpdate.log, different from the one you listed above.

Maybe this is a clue?

Well, just to close this one out, let it be known that I finally gave up and did a repair in place which fixed the problem - I now have IE 10 installed and fully updated and did NOT install IE 11 - I was chicken.

We'll never know what I did to make IE 11 immutable (no update, no uninstall) in the old setup. Probably some tangling in the intricacies of windows update, almost certainly not caused by malware or virus, but what made it happen will remain a mystery.

Sometimes, it's better not to know

Thanks for coming back to tell us.

Good luck with it!
