Windows 7: Windows update - KB3046482 always failing on Win 8 machine

It reports a C++ error message, when I first log in. However closer look the pages that don't work are .Net framework ones - pages with pie charts of live data. It just sits there. I tried reinstalling .Net however get an error. I then tried any other installer and I get the same error. So it looks to have caused an issue on setup installers.

I tried reverting to defaults in IE however that didn't fix it.

Let's just put it to Malware - sadly I don't have time to run anymore scans/troubleshoot further. Think it's easier to just rebuild the laptop but appreciate the time and effort spent from your side.

Thanks nevertheless

I suspect that you're probably correct about rebuilding being the quicker solution

Good luck with it!
