Unzipped to desktop, a Windows folder on desktop, yes?

The SURT tool I have from MS is Windows6.1-KB947821-v34-x64.msu, is this correct?

Yes correct SURT Tool.
Well, so much for SURT finding folder on desktop. Didn't happen!
Download SFCFixScript.zip and place it on your desktop
Download SFCFix.exe by Niemiro place it on your desktop
Drag and Drop SFCFixScript onto SFCFix and release mouse button.
Post log that appears on your desktop

Would you please check and see if this path was created.

C:\Windows\Windows\servicing\Packages
At C:\Windows what is the date of the windows folder at this location. If it is today, I goofed on the script.
May have to change script. It appears that it created a Windows folder in the Windows folder and that shouldn't happen.

C:\Windows\Windows\servicing\Packages

Thought So. Must have been up too late last night studying for upcoming IT exam.
Here's the batch file to remove the boo boo

Remove Incorrectly Placed Folder.zip

Extract and run please.

Here's the corrected zip with replacement files. Place it on your desktop and Drag and Drop onto SFCFiix

SFCFixScript.zip

Post log that appears, again, please.
