Windows 7: Cannot install windows update KB4074598

Hi, sorry its been a few days... I attached images of some of my results if you cant see them in my post. Here is my result after running troubleshooter :

Windows Update error: 0x800f081f (2018-02-28-T-07-38-28P NOT FIXED
Problem instaling recent updates NOT FIXED

After I tried the window update error and I got stuck entering this command "Ren %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.bak" in command and ran as Admin:

Access denied

finally stopping windows update gave me the same result "code 8024200D"

I hope this info helps

I too can not install the monthly updates, KB4074598 being the last one that fails.
I have renamed the SoftwareDistribution folder and windows said it had never been updated before.
The next update took some time to complete and it found I needed the KB4074598 update, it downloaded it, did a system restore point and started to install, but upon completion is said it failed to install.

Ccleaner reports no problems, but still can't do the monthly updates like KB4074598.

Any ideas why I can't install the monthly updates?
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Windows 7, 32 bit, 8 gb ram and so much free disk space.

Regards,
K.

Can you run System Update Readiness Tool x64 version and post logs please
Logs at: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS
Only need CheckSUR.log and CheckSUR.persist.log. Compress/zip them and attach.

Hi flextel,

SevenForums Admins frown on hijacking threads. Please start a new thread and we will be happy to assist you.

FYI, when you rename SoftwareDistribution folder, it is saved as SoftwareDistribution.old, that is if you used Shawn's Batch File.
Your history is in that folder, the new folder Windows creates is initially blank, therefore Win Update, in checking update history, reports never been updated.
When you start a new thread, please follow Windows Update Posting Instructions

I got the message that "this update is not applicable to your computer".
My PC being 32 bit Windows 7 and not the 64 bit that the link suggests.

ADMIN - I'm not trying to hijack a thread, just new to forums and desperate for help, I thought it completely pointless to go to all the trouble to describe what some one else had already described and explain the results of what some one else has already explained when my problem is identical to this one...!

Do you wish me to open a new topic and list everything on this topic yet again somewhere else?

Regards,
K.

Personally, it's not a problem for me. We'll see what Admins do, sometimes they move posts, sometimes not. We'll proceed here and see what happens.

SURT on the other post was for x64 Win7. Good work on your part with the 32 bit version.
Logs are clean! I'm giving @torchwood a jingle for further assistance. He's really good with Win Update issues.

Run Windows Update Troubleshooter
After the troubleshooter is done, try running Windows Update again and install any available updates.

Logs look good, giving @torchwood, a shout for addition assistance.
In the meantime download and run UltraVirusKiller
In FindaFix/app searchbox type windows update. There are two choices Windows Update Troubleshooter and Fix & enable Window Update.
Run first entry WUT first. reboot, run the other, reboot and try win update again.

As I'd expect no problems, because the updates are down loaded OK, it's after they finish installing that the PC reports the problem.
Four images;
1. Down loading update
2. Creating restore point
3. Installing
4. Failed
FYI they download, they install, then the install fails at the end.
