Yes, as CrystalDiskInfo also indicates not the cause. All this was transferred from your other drive obviously.

When dealing with computer issues, everyone has a different level of tech savviness. Quite often the Original Poster (OP) doesn't understand why a helper determines a particular test, scan, or log is necessary in the troubleshooting process.

If an OP has numerous errors, especially all zero errors, (the file is empty) check for a failing HDD or SSD is high on the troubleshooting agenda. (usually first). If the drive is failing, repair/replacement of files/folders will not correct the underlying issue, the drive is bad.

FRST is being used for a registry search to find registry (hive) corruptions. Softwaremaniac (SM) is searching for specific KB registry entries, i.e. your failed updates. When FRST creates the log, then a fix script will be created to address (remove) those entries from the registry. At the beginning of the script is an entry to create a restore point (very, very important) followed by a DeleteValue: entry for the appropriate registry entries. If you peruse the log FRST created when you run the FIX, you will see that most, if not all, say "successful". You can peruse a tutorial on FRST if you wish here:

A first read of the tutorial indicates that FRST should be approached with great caution, else the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" scene from Walt Disney's famous Fantasia movie would be reproduced live on your monitor.

No problem, always glad to help or attempt to explain something. Backups are always appropriate when attempting to correct computer issues, as well as regular scheduled backups. (my footer says it all)

When/if I get my nervous system/sleep problem under control, I'll be back in Sysnative Windows Update Academy.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to present them. If I don't know the answer, I'll attempt to locate an acceptable response.
