Windows 7: Update Failure with contradictory messages

28 Oct 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Update Failure with contradictory messages

I did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium w/SP 1 in preparation for passing my old computer on to a family member. I have installed IE 11, Windows Security Essentials and Google Chrome.

I followed suggestions I found and pre-installed two updates to the windows update and then ran windows update. All but four of the updates installed. They are Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2912390), KB3078601, KB3110329, KB3156016. All four show error 800B01000. I turned off automatic updates and attempted a manual install and the error message I receive when I do so is "The update is not applicable to your computer."

My first question is: Do I need these updates or not?

If I do need them, what is my next step at installing them.

If they really are not needed how to I get them to stop appearing in my list of important updates?

I'm not completely sure what's causing this issue, as it seemingly appeared out of the blue. However, a few weeks prior I had a new hard drive installed and transferred my existing OS and documents etc (everything) across onto it using Acronis, so I'm thinking that it could be a hard drive failure,...
