PBCOPTER response fixed me right up, one of the 2 files I had the other I googled , downloaded, and finally started to update. Maybe u have another issue going on other than what I had,.

Hi MoxieMomma,
Looks like a good plan, except, I get an error message (0x80070422) if the Windows Update Service is not running. And, if I try and run KB3172605 (KB3020369 is already installed) the standalone updater comes up, and just sits and spins, looking for updates on the computer. At this point, nothing seems to be working.

This is because Update is running. It is important to set Updates to never check for updates then restart your computer. This will assure that Updates in not running when you download and install KB3172605.

You can rest updates to what ever you would like later.

Hi pbcopter,
"Never check for updates" was the answer (as you probably already knew). But, being the computer illiterate that I am, it took me a while to locate and turn off that feature. I've always suspected that updating manually was the way to go, and this latest go round confirms that. Appreciate the insight and expertise.

Now run a system file check, see if it comes up clean

Ran the scan as suggested, came back clean. I had run a scan a while ago, but it doen't hurt to run another for verification.
Thanks
