W7 home premium 32bit/W7HP 64bit/w10 tp insider ring

Hi Brian,
Did ALL of these installs come from an image!

Its showing that certain entries are Sandboxed, which possibly means that an AV was running when the copy was made.
CBS Opened cabinet package, package directory:
C:\Windows\TEMP\IE1D355.tmp\KB2834140\, sandbox location:

Its also showing as being a small business server edition
2016-03-11 20:12:26, Info CBS Appl: Package: Microsoft-Windows-IIS-WebServer
Update: IIS-FTPServer, Applicable: NeedsParent, Disposition: Staged

2016-03-11 20:12:26, Info CBS Failed to find localized custom property bag

It cant get the right permissions.

Hi Roy, not sure what you mean by image? These installs were done through Windows Update. I may have had Firefox open when I was doing updates, had my TV guide open and should have had it closed. The only antivirus I have on this setup is MSE and it actually had an update that installed as well.

Why this would show as anything other than Win 7 Home Premium I have no idea.

It seems to be working okay at this point but took running sfc to be able to get updates.

Windows Update error w/"clean install"

When you clean installed W7 SP-1 you were not given the latest version of Windows Updater. This alone WILL cause a failure/error. Microsoft has a solution, but it is buried in the FIXIT and or info on their website.
On the Microsoft site navigate to find Windows 6.1-KB3102810-x64.msu (3.2MB).
This is the solution I used as it is a complete replacement for the version that was not properly updated. MS says that the Updater should update itself but this sometimes does not happen. The You can determine which files you have by looking in System32 for wuaueng.dll and wuauclt. These files should have dates of 9/25/15, after installing the replacement.

Warning: Microsoft continues to sneak Windows 10 offers. During a fresh/clean install of W7 Pro, I went thru over 200 updates and found the ones listed elsewhere here on the Forum. It is very tedious to do this but well worth it as one will find things that do not apply to most users everyday needs.

Thanks for the info JC. I installed KB3102810 though the files you mentioned to look for were from 02/12/16, at least that's when they were modified. Why this wouldn't be an immediate fix from MS is ridiculous.

I am going to try and find Win 10 files to delete because as much as I dislike Win 7 compared to XP which was rock solid, I don't want to go anywhere near 10.

Windows 7 64 bit

Tried to do updates last night and it hung up all night on KB3006625, was still trying to run this morning. I stopped the update and even that hung up. If my PC is saying I am a small business server I'm assuming it's going to have me update things I don't need. How can I change what my PC is? I simply have Home Premium and it's a standalone PC.
