I'm not on the affected pc right now. Since the April 2016 MS Security Updates Download, I've been getting the Red Shield. I've run all the checks*, but I can't find anything wrong - except that the first chkdsk found 4 KB of bad sectors and eliminated them. It seems there is an error that won't allow these downloads or list the ones that are in Windows/Servicing/Packages. There is no backup early enough to replace this Windows. I installed a 3rd party do-all called 360 [I use this with my XP on VMware, as MS don't support XP any more]. Anyway, 360 installed a rather elderly Security Update, and Update Green Shield worked, including Windows restarting as it would normally. So, Update is there, but the corrupt or missing file won't let it run. All other, 3rd Party downloads are O.K.
Any ideas, please?
* HP Recovery Disk, MS Recovery Disk, all the download repair modules

welcome to the forum

manually installing most updates one at a time can help as downloading a bunch at a time can cause a fail for some machines. usually theres a specific error code. without that its a process of elimination. try running an update manually and record the error that is displayed and see how it goes.

unfortunately, system optimisers can tend to muddy the waters when narrowing down the issues and may even exacerbate the situation. also the need for good internet connection, sometimes unstable connection hinders the connection to the microsoft server.
