Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file



Never mind - found them!

I've uploaded a file - mikaa.zip - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive
Please download and save it.
Right-click on the downloaded file, and select Extract all…
Extract to the default location - which will create a new folder mikaa in the same place.
Open this folder - there should be one folder inside it ( Packages)

Copy the content of the Packages folder to the folder
C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSur\Servicing\Packages

Now run the CheckSUR tool again (it may take a while)

Post the new CheckSUR.log file, and the CheckSUR.persist.log file.

CheckSUR is happy now, at least!

Do a new Check for Updates - then attempt to install only the oldest found update.
If it goes in OK, try the rest - if not, then post back with the error code, and KB number.

Hello Noel, windows update is executing fine now. There were two updates initially, one installed successfully the other one (KB890830) failed. I retried Windows update and it installed successfully. I have successfully installed a number of updates thereafter. I really appreciate your help with this for I have been working on it for a while now. I saw the process you used to help others with this problem but could not locate the needed files. How do you acquire the needed files if the KB# of the problem update is not listed in the CheckSur log, if you don’t mind me asking? Again, thank you very much!

It helps when you have a machine with (almost) every possible version of (almost) every Win 7 update released on it somewhere... Windows Search then becomes really useful!
