Windows 7: Persistent Windows Update error - 80073712

Win 7 x64 Home Premium (and x86 VirtualBox VM)/Win10

That should work - and shouldn't do any harm if it doesn't.

Post the new log and we'll see what happens! It's possible that MS have updated CheckSUR again and changed methodology (which will REALLY annoy a lot of people!)

7 Professional 64 bit

Well Noel, seems you're a Welsh wizard!!! Ran SFC, re-booted, checked for updates and 29 are now coming down the line!!!

In case you need the CheckSUR and CBS log details, I attach anyway. You did say you thought there were a few Windows files missing. So let me know if you want me to do anything else.

Majorly grateful - many thanks!!! And give my regards to Ewloe and Trefeglws where I visit on occasions
