Great - before attempting updates, run an SFC /SCANNOW and see what that reports.
If it's all clear, go ahead with WU.
If not, post the new CBS.log and we'll take a look.

I actually went ahead doing the update before your reply hahaha. I did sfc /scannow check after the update and file system is good. With several restarts and updates I now have one important update left, it is a rather old one, I suppose I should just ignore it and hide it?

Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2992611)

Download size: 5.1 MB

You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.

Update type: Important

That update is one of the ones we replaced files for - does it show in the Installed Updates listing?
It may be worth uninstalling and reinstalling it.

Hmmm - it should be OK to leave it, and hide it from WU.

You could perhaps force a removal using the following command..
wusa /uninstall /kb:2992611


but since it's a superceded update anyhow, so long as update KB3018238 is installed properly it should be fine...
check your Installed Updates and see
