Windows Update - Reverting Changes

Hi all,

I give up in frustration. I have three Windows Updates that will not install:
  • 3003057 (IE11), Error 800F0826
  • 3002885 ("Security Update"), Error 8007054F
  • 3003743 ("Security Update"), Error 8007054F
I have utilised the System Readiness Update Tool, run that sfc command - no errors reported.

I've deleted the WU download folder, re-started the WU service.

I've tried installing them one at a time - no difference.

It seems to be any that require a reboot, that fail (although the AMD SATA driver did install).

Is there something I am missing?

I'll attach the CBS log in a minute - it seems to have gone missing!

I'll try and get the CBS Log File attached tomorrow.

It's too big and it's taking too long - in fact it looks like nothing's happening when I click "Upload File".

This is after splitting it into under 8Mb zip chunks.

It can take a few minutes to upload 8MB files, depending on your connection speed. be patient

There appears to be a problem with your file - it won't extract at my end? It also appears to be too small for the size of file that is indicated. A 159MB CBS.log I would expect to come down to about 8MB on compression, rather than the indicated 760KB.

Please try again

It was compressed (and un-compressed, to check) with 7-Zip, as I knew it made really small files.

Trying to do it with another ZIP tool now.

Re-compressed file attached.

I've split the CBS Log into two halves and created two zip files accordingly. I don't know how else to get it under the 8Mb limit.

Thanks.

Interesting log! - unfortunately it's all about the rollback, and not what went on in the install phase
Please post the CBSPersist files (you'll have to zip them, as the forum doesn't accept bare CAB files) and the CheckSUR logs
