If you zip it, it should come down to reasonable size (90% compression isn't unusual)
If it's that size compressed, upload it preferably to Dropbox or OneDrive and post a link.

Looks like the problem file is this one...
Code:
Package_for_KB2961072
I'll post a fix protocol later to replace both the affected file and its companion file, and we'll see whether that works

I've uploaded a file - tymaa.zip - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive
Please download and save it.

Right-click on the saved file and select Extract all...
Change the target to C:\ and click on Extract
Close all windows (it would be a good idea to print these instructions!)

Now reboot to the Repair Environment - as soon as the machine restarts, start tapping F8 - this should bring up the Advanced Boot Menu, at the top of which should be the option 'Repair my Computer'
Pick that
You'll have to log in with your username and password.

Pick the option to use a Command Prompt
At the prompt type
DIR C:\tymaa
hit the enter key - if you get a 'Not Found' error try
DIR D:\tymaa
or
DIR E:\tymaa



The drive letter in use when you find the folder will need to be substituted (for<drive>) into the following command...



XCOPY <drive>:\tymaa <drive>:\windows\servicing\Packages /y /i /s /v /h



(e.g. XCOPY P:\wfire P:\windows\servicing\Packages /y /i /s /v /h )



run the command (it should take almost no time) and when the prompt returns, type
EXIT
and hit the Enter key to exit Command Prompt - reboot to Normal Mode Windows.

Now run SFC /SCANNOW in an Elevated Command Prompt
then reboot and upload the new CBS.log file to your reply

That's sorta expected At least we've cleared the error I wanted to clear.

Now please open an Elevated Command Prompt and run the following commands




NET STOP WUAUSERV
REN C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution SDOLD
NET START WUAUSERV

reboot
then wait 10 minutes, and open Windows Updates, and run a Check for Updates.

Install only the oldest update found - and reboot once installed
then go back to Windows updates and install the others.

Your Update History will have cleared - but all updates are still installed, and listed in the Installed Updates listing.
