Windows 7: Unable to install KB968212

Unable to install KB968212

I am trying to install KB968212 on my Win 7 Pro N but its always stuck at install window and makes no progress. CBS.log file is getting bigger and bigger during install, last time I tried it was 32GB. Also looks like this update is already listed in my registry, so I dont understand how its not recognized by windows.

I have included screenshot from registry editor and CBS.log that was already 400MB after 2 mins of installing.

Very odd - there's no errors in the CBS.log that I can find (easily!)
Please run the CheckSUR tool, and post the resulting logs...

Please downloadand save the CheckSUR tool from

(you'll need tolook in the details for Windows 7, downloading from the Microsoft DownloadCenter)

Run it - The toolcan take anywhere from 5 mins to a couple of hours to run (or 'Install')depending on how much it has to do, and may exit silently - it may appear tofreeze for most of that time, but be patient.

The result islogged in the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log file - and an archive …\checksur.persist.log file

Then zip theCheckSUR.log and upload it to your OneDrive Public folder so I can take a look- post a link in your reply.
