Windows Update KB3033929 fails with code 80070490

Hello,

I have a problem on one of my Win7 x64 PCs.

The Windows Update KB3033929 fails with code 80070490 because of missing components of KB2949927 (see attached CheckSUR.zip).

I would need the KB2949927 files to put it into c:\windows\temp\CheckSUR\.....

Thanks!

You have major registry corruption.
Code:
Seconds executed: 9701
 Found 126 errors
  CBS Watchlist Package Missing Total count: 59
  CBS Watchlist Component Missing Total count: 67
These errors all relate to update KB2949927.

I would suggest attempting to uninstall the update from the Installed Updates listing, as a first step

sorry, the Update KB2949927 doesn't appear in the Update list in Programs and Features, so I can't select it for removal.

I had a feeling that may be the case.

I'm very wary about dealing with this type of error - especially in the quantities you have - so I'm going to call for assistance.

Don't run away, but it may take a day or two to get someone to come here.

I've talked to my Guru about these errors, and it seems that my first instinct (to delete them en masse) was correct.

I'll work up a registry file that should do the job, and post it later.

Hello Noel,

have you already generated the registry file?

Thanks in advance?

It seems you have a long, long ToDo List :-)

Do you think there will be a solution? Otherwise I would reinstall that PC then...

Yikes!!
I've been learning a lot about this type of error in the meantime
Just in case things have changed, can you please run CheckSUR again, and post the new log?

I promise, I WILL get to it this evening!

Ok, fine.

Attached the new file (but nothing really has changed).

Thanks!
