When he install monthly rollups, windows does not start after reboot - the repair system starts and I can only perform the system restore.
I did sfc scan, surt scan even tool named sfcfix.
Someone suggested to me to reinstall all Microsoft Visual C ++ Redistributable packages, so I did it, but the problem remained.
I have that windows installation since 2012 and dont't want to reinstall it. Any help is welcome.

Hi sykomora,
Welcome to SevenFourms!
Searching since yesterday, only found 5 of your 14 missing manifests.

You might want to try a Repair Install it replaces Windows7 and keeps all your installed programs, files, folder, music, pictures, etc.

Here's an excellent video by Brian at Britec Computer UK
Repair Install to Fix Windows 7 Without Reformatting by Britec

You will need your 25 character product key, you can obtain it from your computer with
KeyFinder | Magical Jelly Bean
You want the CD key not Product ID. I usually copy and paste it into, say, notepad and print it to avoid typos.

If you don't have a Win7 DVD you can obtain an ISO from
TechBench by WZT
The only working downloads are for Win7 Ultimate x64 and Win7 Ultimate x32
To make all version available use
eicfg_removal_utility.zip

You can't copy and paste an ISO file to DVD or USB Flash Drive, it has to be burned
To dvd Burn .ISO Image Files ImgBurn
To USB Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way

To avoid days of updates, 230+ and counting, and numerous reboots, use
Website Dism++ | New Windows Utility.
Direct Download DISM++
Yes, it's from Chinese firm! When you run it, click on Updates, then Scan, Choose the updates you wish to install, and then click Install updates.

Any questions, we're here for you!

Thank you for your efforts Snick. Maybe I will try Repair Install but I do not think because I do not believe that afterwards everything (all programs) will be going properly. I feel that I will fix one mistake to create another

As a last resort, I would try to uninstall all patches since January. If it's possible? Because I used disk cleanup (cleanmgr) few times - clean system files including wu files.

I will eventually have to live without the windows patches.
And one day find the time to install Windows from scratch with whole bulk of programs I use.

During the repair install process, ALL the Windows updates will be deleted, so you will need to update the OS again with all the updates. There are at present, over 240 updates. Now rather than letting M$ Windows update update your OS, which involves many hours of downloading, installing and re-booting, you can use DISM++ to do it all for you. It is very easy to do. If you want to update the OS [after the repair install] this way then please let us knoow and we will post the procedure.

I hope this helps!

I mean now unistall those updates. I think I read somewhere that the wrong installation order of fixes could cause errors - I mean rollups preview. Problem started with monthly preview KB4093113 in April

Hi sykomora,

You could use this tutorial to uninstall a WU through Installed Updates => How to Uninstall a Windows Update in Windows 7.

Alternatively, to un-install the updates that you posted in post #1, please follow my instructions below [probably best to use Option [3] under wusa - Uninstall Update for each of the updates to un-install from the last update first and work backwards]!

wusa - Overview

wusa must be run from an elevated command prompt:

(1) Click Start.
(2) In the search box type cmd.
(3) Right-click the cmd icon from the search results under Programs and select Run as administrator.
(4) The elevated command prompt window will now open.

Switches used:

[1] None. If no switches are used, then this will require user interaction and will re-start the computer automatically if it is required.
[2] /quiet mode. When the wusa tool runs in this mode, it runs without any user interaction. The computer will however, re-start if it is required. Additionally, the Microsoft Software License Terms will not appear.
[3] /quiet /no re-start mode. When the wusa tool runs in this mode, it runs without any user interaction and prevents the computer from re-starting if it is required. Additionally, the Microsoft Software License Terms will not appear.

NOTE: The /norestart switch is ignored if the /quiet switch is not present. If you run these two switches together, you must manually re-start the OS after the installation is complete if that particular update requires it.

NOTE: If you use Copy and Paste for any of the commands below, you will need to use the mouse right-click and paste option because CTRL+V doesn’t work in the elevated command prompt window.

wusa – Uninstall Update

Type one of the following commands [see Switches used above] at the elevated command prompt to uninstall the update [where xxxxxxx is the update number]:

[1] wusa /uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx [yes, there are three spaces there]. Press Enter.
[2] wusa /uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx /quiet [yes, there are two spaces there]. Press Enter.
[3] wusa /uninstall /kb:xxxxxxx /quiet /norestart [yes, there are four spaces there]. Press Enter.

Re-boot the computer and check that the updates are no longer installed!

It might be best to do the latest one first and see if it works!

I hope this helps!

Thnx.
It probably will not work. I tried to uninstall several older patches by wusa and each time I receive information that "this patch is not installed"

Well, shame, but I prefer to work without the possibility of updates than to reinstall the system from scratch

Did you watch Brian's Video?
I've repair installed numerous computers and haven't had to deal with any issues other than the 240+ Windows 7 updates. You can expedite that process with DISM++.

You could try un-installing the latest update to see if it works. It might be different to previously!

wusa /uninstall /kb:4457144 /quiet /norestart [yes, there are four spaces there]. Press Enter.

Wait for it to finish and then re-boot.

NOTE: If you use Copy and Paste for the command above, you will need to use the mouse right-click and paste option because CTRL+V doesn’t work in the elevated command prompt window.

Just to clarify.

A re-install will completely erase/delete everything [unless you back all your data up FIRST] on the HDD and install a clean/fresh copy of the OS.

A repair install differs from a clean install in the fact that it ONLY replaces the corrupted OS with a new fresh copy. This means that ALL your User Accounts, Folders, Files, Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos, Data Files, Icons, and any installed programs are left intact. It does however, delete ALL the Window updates. You cannot do a repair install at boot, in Safe Mode, using a system repair disk, or using an integrated Windows update disk. Basically, this process can ONLY be performed from within the LIVE OS.

I hope this helps!
