Just for info - have a read through this:

How to remove Windows 10 upgrade updates in Windows 7 and 8

I've found that the batch file does not always succeed in deleting everything that it is supposed to delete and that manual/ force deletion may be required.

Looks complex! I think for now I am going to leave the update service disabled and run Windows Update manually as and when. It's always seemed to me that Windows Update usually creates more problems on my PC than it fixes (though yes, I do realise, the problems are most often much more visible than the 'behind the scenes' fixes!)...

As the other error is related to the windows update engine, please follow the instructions from this link,
Windows Genuine and Activation Issue Posting Instructions

Uninstalled KB3022345. Did not make a difference. I tried running the SURT tool again. Still did not go thru. It hangs at installing the Hotfix during install and eventually runs the system out of memory.

Not sure about the link you posted. It contains nothing in it for Windows Update, just Windows activation.

IT will do, removes a lot of KNOWN incorrect errors within SFC, thats why MS patched it.
As for the link run the MGAdiag, it produces a report including the Windows update version your currently running.

You will have to reword that sentence for me. I could not understand it.

I ran the MGAdiag. Which tab shows the Windows Update version I'm currently running?

My system does something similar but it will automatically finish whatever it is doing after about
30 minutes or so, and CPU and memory levels will decrease to something normal.
I have my WU set to let me know about updates , but let me chose whether to download and install them.
I can actually download and install updates consistently, but sometimes you will get odd symptoms like
you go to download and install any update and the loading bar will stay at 0% and 0 KB for
5 minutes and then suddenly install the update as normal.

I've checked the sfc/scannow and everything checks out find, same with chkdsk.
I'm almost 100% certain that I have NO malware of any kind be it trojans, rootkits, ect. I have
MSE, and I use the program between my ears to keep things free of such things.

I hate to play around with it because it seems from my experience that trying to fix WU ends up creating other problems.
