Of it goes OK, install remaining updates in batches of 5 or so (expect a couple of failures as the order in the list isn't the same as the needed install order)
Noel, I'm not sure which updates to download, here's a picture, you tell me.

That surprises me - the indication is that there are still problems that CheckSUR should be seeing.

I think resetting the SoftwareDownload folder should fix that...


Open an Elevated Command Prompt
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.

Ok so, I went into the 100+ updates and only checked the 2013 ones, which were 35 of them. Its currently doing that with no problem, taking forever but its going. Im at update 11. Should I stop and do what you just said or do it after?

No - wait until it's finished, and then try the others.
Once all the updates that can be installed have gone in, post the list of failing updates, and the error code associated with the oldest.

Reboot after each batch of updates and run another Check for Updates before attempting the new installs

Noel, Just finished downloading the 35 updates I told you about and it successfully installed 32 and failed 6. Have a look.

OK - run SFC and CheckSUR again, and post the new CBS folder.

Noel, I'm doing that now. By the way, I installed the other updates and they're just 16 failed updates left to download and install.
