Sorry - couldn't see it for looking!

As far as I can tell, there's nothing amiss there - which means that all the CheckSUR errors originate from the SOFTWARE registry hive.

Repairing this manually is a royal pain - but possible.
There is a tool available to assist, but I'm not an expert in its use, so I'm going to call for assistance, but it may take a couple of days for the cavalry to come charging over the hill - don't run away!

Not sure if this helps but I figured I might try to uninstall IE 11 and reinstall since the one update was related to it. IE11 wont uninstall and most likely has to do with the software registry errors also.

Some permission problem on COMPONENTS hive? I'm not an expert on it. Follow @NOELDP's instructions.

The problem is with entries in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing part of the registry (The SOFTWARE hive).
The permissions on this are strict - and the hive is always in use by the OS so it's difficult to make changes without either a tool for the job or a lot of sweat and worry.

Hopefully, I'll learn enough from how the cavalry performs to be able to do the job myself next time!

Wow. At least it's narrowed down. Thank you so much for your help and hopefully we can resolve this.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing
has explictly set permissions (so not inherited):
TrustedInstaller: FULL CONTROL
Users, SYSTEM, Administrator: Read

So easy to set in my opinion.

All its subkeys inherit the permissions. At least on my computer all subkeys have inherited these permissions.

@RFOG80: Please run regedit and goto key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
right click on "Component Based Servicing" ->Permissions->Advanced. Post screenshot.

Everyone??? I don't have that. I expected this:
TrustedInstaller: FULL CONTROL
Users, SYSTEM, Administrator: Read

Here my screenshot (sorry in Dutch). Any idea why security is gone on that key? It's not the source of the problem... you grant more access as usual.
