Last thing (hopefully)

Open an Elevated Command Prompt window, and run the following command

NETSH WINSOCK RESET

reboot on request.

Thankyou for all your help, would you have any idea why my internal memory card reader wont work i can upload pictures from my camera using the usb cord but not directly from the SD memory card, but the memory card works in a different camera so there is no fault with the card itself.

Check in Device Manager and see if there's any problems showing there - if there are, uninstall the affected devices, and reboot - Windows should reinstall them and fix the problem.

Update REQUIRES WIndows Firewall Service - Is it missing?

Check to see if the Windows Firewall Service was missing.

Please confirm that your "Windows Firewall" service is listed in "Services.msc". If not see: (Windows Firewall damaged by 'Windows 7 antivirus 2012'). There is a link inside that post that resets the service. Once you run the tool to fix the service restart the computer and ensure the "Windows Firewall" service is listed and proceed to try your update again.

The user I worked with had McAfee Firewall installed and I can only assume it removed the default Windows one which is apparently a prerequisite for this patch.

One would assume that since the OP's last response to the forum was 9 months ago, the problem is resolved one way or another
