Windows 7: Windows 7 SP1 not pulling updates / SURT corruption count of 111

Windows 7 SP1 not pulling updates / SURT corruption count of 111

I've got a system that was acting weird on, running slow, etc. I did an repair install of Windows 7 SP1 over the existing OS and can't get all of the Windows updates to roll.

I attempted to do SFC /SCANNOW and it reports no integrity violations.

KB947821 was run overnight and this evening, I found the computer still running it with the "Searching for updates" prompt.

CBS folder is attached.

SFCFix shows:
SFCFix version by niemiro.

I've looked around the forums online and tried various things, but can't seem to get the updates to pull down correctly.

Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.

Hi Rainmaker,
suspect that report (sfcfix) was run prior to SURT, its log shows all items FIXED, the CBS log also looks clean.

Suspect as its a reinstall its falling foul of the MS WU bug.
please follow Thrashzone's instructions, post no:2 from this link.
Windows Update will not update and I've tried multiple fixes

If this fails please run this tool and copy/paste the output.

When trying to install KB3020369, I get "The update is not applicable to your computer." I just verified that the computer is running Windows 7 Professional SP1 and is shown as 64-bit Operating System. I verified I grabbed the correct installer.

For grins, I attempted to install KB3172605 and it installed fine. Rebooted.

After it came back up, I ran the SURT and got the following result:

Checking System Update Readiness.
Binary Version 6.1.7601.22471
Package Version 26.0
2017-01-11 14:49

Checking Windows Servicing Packages

Checking Package Manifests and Catalogs

Checking Package Watchlist

Checking Component Watchlist

Checking Packages

Checking Component Store

Seconds executed: 260
No errors detected

Amazed to say the least. I am currently running Windows update now. The CBS Log seems to be accumulating a lot right now with it running (I cleared it out prior to running WU.

I will advise.

It appears that Windows Updates are now installing as they should be, so I will consider this resolved. Thank you, torchwood, for your assistance! Much appreciated!
