NoelDP,

I downloaded this folder to the default location (no location was specified in the directions). I then (as per your instructions) extracted all. This created the folder.

Code:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

C:\Users\John\Downloads>dir pvgaa

The newly created folder has a folder in it called packages.

I copied this folder to the Directory of c:\windows\temp\checksur\packages

This was incorrect, as you specified C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSur\Servicing\Packages

After running the tool, all references to KB3013126 in Checksur went away. However, references to KB3004394 remain. Also, the Checksur file size was reduced from a zip'd 24MB to much smaller, 31KB.

I have recopied the packages folder to the correct, specified folder:

Code:
C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSUR\servicing>dir packages
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is A01A-E001

The Checksur from today and before seem identical, while the CBS shrunk.

Brain-death and man-flu hit me - sorry about that.

OK - I think I'm sorted now.


I've uploaded a file - pvgac.zip - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive
Please download and save it.
Right-click on the downloaded file, and select Extract all…
Extract to the default location - which will create a new folder pvgac in the same place.
Open this folder - there should be one folders inside it (Packages)

Copy the content of the Packages folder to the folder
C:\Windows\Temp\CheckSur\Servicing\Packages


Now run the CheckSUR tool again (it may take a while)

Post the new CheckSUR.log file, and the CheckSUR.persist.log file.

Reboot and immediately uninstall KB3004394!!
