I have been trying to repair and do Windows Updates with no joy! I have run system readiness tool, seems not to work properly.

Ran sfc /scannow, no problems found!

Thanks for your reply, however, a now have another problem and I hope you can help?

last week I tried to update windows using WSUS offline update wich did not work either. I just noticed that windows showed updates to be installed, so I restarted the computer. Now there is a WOUTempAdmin account and another user, The main login is gone! with no way to login! The WOUTtempAdmin is password protected and other User is password protected. The main login was Jamie, but it's gone. Can you guide me with any help on this? I have attached a screenshot of the desktop via Remote connect.

Please disregard last post, I have taken care of that problem. (WOUTempAdmin)

I followed your instructions from the thread you suggested, here is where I am. KB3020369 was already installed and KB3172605 failed.
