reinstalled win 7, updates kb2618451 2305420 2685939 failed, what do?

windows 7 hp 32 bit

I have reinstalled windows 7.
That means many updates.
After the updating these are listed as failed

cumulative security update for activex killbits kb2618451
security update kb2305420 and kb2685939

This recommended update also failed
update kb2834140

There is no way I know what they mean?
Should I get them installed, and how should I do that?

Thanks.

Have you done a new Check for Updates?


Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data
If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CBA files, for a number of reasons)

Thank you for answering.

Do you ask me to do all steps on 'windows update posting instructions'?

I have done an update again. And there was a def update for 'sec essentials'. It got installed.

I ran the 'sfc /scannow'.
Result was 'not find any integrity violations'.

I copied and opened the 2 mb cbs text file.
That is a lot of data, and I do not know what it says.
Am I not handing something over about my system, that I should not?

I have not run the 'surt' software. I do not know what it is. Can you explain?

The tutorial explains what you need to do.
The MSE/Defender updates use a different method to update - so even if WU is failing badly, those updates will often still install.

Thank you.
I will look into the defender, and if that does not solve it, I will try a reinstall, and see if the same problem repeats.
