Windows 7: when windows updates ready icon does not appear in notification area

18 Sep 2015   #1

when windows updates ready icon does not appear in notification area

Windows updates set to notify if available including ms products.
Cleared out tray notification icons in registry
sfc /scannow found no errors
SURT KB 947821 does not complete successfully
WU icon set to show icon and notify

tried resorting from system image from April 2015. It worked until the updates since then were installed except for KB's 3035583, 3022345, 3068708, 3075249, 3080149 which were hidden and not downloaded.

no error codes - still getting updates just not the notification they're available.

However event viewer did have this error which i believe relates to windows updates

Log Name: Application
Source: ESENT
Date: 9/18/2015 2:29:19 AM
Event ID: 474
Task Category: Database Page Cache
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: MIKE-PC
wuaueng.dll (1056) SUS20ClientDataStore: The database page read from the file "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb" at offset 99975168 (0x0000000005f58000) (database page 3050 (0xBEA)) for 32768 (0x00008000) bytes failed verification due to a page checksum mismatch. The expected checksum was [e8c91736038a688c:9458945804aa0bdd:336933692a3d0bfe:92da92da7fc60b9a] and the actual checksum was [e8ca1735113d6813:9458945804aa0bdd:336933692a3d0bfe:927992796dd20ba6]. The read operation will fail with error -1018 (0xfffffc06). If this condition persists then please restore the database from a previous backup. This problem is likely due to faulty hardware. Please contact your hardware vendor for further assistance diagnosing the problem.

it refers to faulty hardware, but I don't have clue as to what that could be since all devices work

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 CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file

Open Event Viewer
click on the Windows logs entry in the left pane to expand it.
Now click on the Application entry - wait while it loads.
Click on 'File' in the menu bar and select Save...
Save the file as Appevt.evtx
Repeat for the System log
then zip both, and upload them.
