Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64

I successfully installed it two days ago.

On Windows Update, I selected the update and then selected "More
information". On the resulting Web page, I selected the second option
for obtaining the update; this required a little more Web navigation to
download the update's installer executable. Then I disconnected from
the Internet and executed the installer.

I tried downloading and installing the update, and it says "The update

Does that mean the update is already installed as part of another
Windows Update package?

My system is x64 win 7, I chose the right package for this system.

That rejection could mean your anti-virus application is not compatible
with the update. Have you updated your anti-virus application and
database recently?

I last updated Kaspersky one hour ago.

I tried exiting Kaspersky, then running the Windows update standalone.
Same results as with K running.

Patches can be gated by "servicing stack" updates.

The .msu will say the package is not applicable if the
servicing stack isn't up to the level the patch wants.

Trying to install an x64 patch on an x86 system, could
give a result like that too.

*******

If you want to study "what is missing from my system",
you'd use MBSA 2.3 for that. It only handles "security"
patches, not "Optional" patches.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7558

After install, when you run it, it looks like this.

Loading Image...

The scan consists of two phases. The first phase, the program
will download a 200MB wsusscn2 file. (When keeping cached copies,
the program will update the file once per day.) A subset of that file,
is what Windows Update would have used. The second phase, is
about three minutes of "wheel spinning" like Windows Update
would normally do when it's broken. MBSA can generally
generate a patch list in five minutes, whereas a Windows 7 you
just installed, might "wheel spin" for hours.

If it doesn't come back in five minutes, it might take
"pull the network cable", a reboot, run MBSA a second time
(using the 200MB wsusscn2 file now cached locally on the C: drive),
to generate a patch list. Then it should take five minutes,
because it has the full attention of wuaueng.

From that patch list, you might find a Servicing Stack item.

As an example, a couple years ago, to fix the Windows Update
"wheel spin" problem, we used to do this.

Servicing Stack

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=3020369

July 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=3172605

If 369 wasn't installed, then 605 would say "not applicable".
If 369 was installed, then 605 would say "yes, sir!".

An example of a "tired sequence", including unnecessary stops
along the way might be.

Install win7
Install SP1 (because you should have used a Win7 SP1 DVD in the first place)
Install the Convenience Update.
Install '369
Install '605 (now, Windows Update might actually work)
Install Cumulative from 2018 from Windows Update list shown.

Those are examples of "stops along the way".

There could well have been Servicing Stack updates since
'369, which could still gate things. I don't know of
a guaranteed way to find them (short of MBSA and some reading
maybe). The search capability on catalog.update.microsoft.com
is hit or miss, and entering "Servicing Stack" might not
get you a thing for your trouble.

*******

There is one other state updates can be in. Lately, an
update can fully install properly, and just Windows Update
is uninformed it was successful. This seems to be a
"post Meltdown/Spectre" issue. That causes a looping behavior.
On Windows 10, it will likely resolve itself. (Updates
there have looped forever, stopped trying after
four attempts, stopped trying after one additional
attempt, as examples of behaviors you might see.)
I couldn't really give you a rundown on what Win7 SP1
is up to today, in terms of those sorts of side-effects.
If you're enough days away from Patch Tuesday, this stuff
is supposed to get fixed...

You might also try Googling KB4074598. In particular, the
askwoody.com site can have comments about the patches,
and since the KB numbers are specific to OS, with any
luck you'll get Win7 advice for your '598.

I have some commands, but no single command (yet) has proven
to be a substitute for any GUI-provided info.

MBSA 2.3 will analyze only Security Updates. it will show
the installed ones. It will show the missing ones.

But, it won't say a thing about the Optional ones, which
is probably 40% of the stuff you've installed over the years.

I can find folders with "Packages" in them, but is that
any way to do this ? That seems a rather clumsy way to do it.
A single Cumulative unpacks into a whole bunch of Packages.

WMIC could be used to give me a very short, unimpressive list.
(wmic qfe).

I count as a success, if I can see KB890830 MSRT repetitive
package coming in (the one that comes in every month). I did
have a list with that earlier, but the list is missing all sorts
of fields (Powershell get-package). And that was hardly a
replacement either. It was a kind of list... that only a chimpanzee
would love.

Whatever Advisor and Speccy are doing, it's likely to be better
than what I've found so far. MBSA is a start, but only half of the
picture. Other things are even less complete than MBSA.

This JS script will list all installed updates.
Run it from a console with CSCRIPT, otherwise it will open 500 windows.
Also, it grabs list of updates from MS and checks if installed, so I
think it's entirely possible that it will miss whatever update is
installed that is no longer in the list it gets from MS...

//http://blogger.ziesemer.com/2009/08/scripted-hidden-windows-updates-vista.html

var updateSession = WScript.CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.Session");
var updateSearcher = updateSession.CreateUpdateSearcher();
updateSearcher.Online = false;

var searchResult = updateSearcher.Search("IsInstalled=1 or IsInstalled=0");

var describeCategory = function(cat, depth){
var pad = new Array(depth + 1).join(" ");
WScript.echo(pad + depth + ": " + cat + ", " + cat.CategoryID + ", "
+ cat.Name + ", " + cat.Type);

for(var i=0; i<cat.Children.Count; i++){
var child = cat.Children.Item(i);
describeCategory(child, depth + 1);
}

for(var i=0; i<cat.Updates.Count; i++){
var update = cat.Updates.Item(i);
WScript.echo(pad + " " + describeUpdate(update, pad + " "));
}
};

var describeUpdate = function(update, pad){
var u = update;
var np = "\n" + (pad || "") + " ";
return u.Title

+ np + "IsDownloaded: " + u.IsDownloaded
+ np + "IsHidden: " + u.IsHidden
+ np + "AutoSelectOnWebSites: " + u.AutoSelectOnWebSites;
};

WScript.echo("\n ===== ALL UPDATES BY CATEGORY =====");

for(var i=0; i<searchResult.RootCategories.Count; i++){
var category = searchResult.RootCategories.Item(i);
describeCategory(category, 1);
}

I can see a .vbs version floating around too. This code is
not exactly the same thing. I wanted to look at both of them,
to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. I mean, I'm seeing the
word "WScript" in your sample, so surely that must be .vbs.
But once you see some .vbs, then it's obvious they're not
quite the same.

Hahaha, I did not even notice that! You are right, there should not be
any WScript in there! Guess it's not pure JS, it *must* be run inside
Microsoft's scripting engine...

I'm not so sure - here's what Speccy said for mine (note that it
switches to "Not Installed" about half way through). It calls them
"Hotfixes".

[FWIW, I have it set to "AutoUpdate Notify prior to download".]

Belarc offers to check for new "security definitions" when it starts,
and if you say yes and it finds any, offers to get them (I'm not sure
why it asks twice!). I saw some reference to something like "Microsoft
security bulletin" while it was doing so (went by too fast to be sure).
Has to be run as administrator to get a full report (it says). In the
summary at the top of its result page, it says "Security Updates
Alert! 3 missing"; it has two sections lower down, one of which says

===
Missing Security Updates – for Adobe, Apple, Java, Microsoft and more [Back to Top]
Hotfixes from Windows Update (agent version 7.6.7601.23806) wait for download and install approval.

These security updates apply to this computer but are not currently installed (using Advisor definitions version 2018.2.26.4), according to the
02/13/2018 Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary and bulletins from other vendors. Note: Security benchmarks require that Critical and Important
severity security updates must be installed.

security hotfix - verifies OK Marks a security hotfix (using the 02/13/2018 Security Bulletin Summary)
security hotfix - fails verification Marks a security hotfix that fails verification (a security vulnerability)
verifies OK Marks a HotFix that verifies correctly
fails verification Marks a HotFix that fails verification(note that failing hotfixes need to be reinstalled)
unmarked Unmarked HotFixes lack the data to allow verification
===

It was actually in two columns; where I cut and pasted it it actually
reformatted as shown. Also, where it says "no verification data" in the
pasted version, it actually had symbols, which were repeated in the
table/key at the bottom - a closed padlock, an open padlock, a tick (US:
check) and a cross (and a blank). [It's easier if you just try it!) I
liked the "(click details... for KB article)" idea; the one I tried
actually worked.

So Speccy lists lots of "Not Installed" "Hotfixes", and Advisor lists
three but not from Microsoft (all from Adobe). And for the ones that
they say _are_ installed, Advisor divides them into (in my case) .NET,
CAPICOM, and Windows 7, but Speccy doesn't subdivide them.

I haven't compared the two lists of installed, as they're in (I think) a
different order and I couldn't see an easy way to do so! Speccy's said
what they were (just the title, such as Windows 7 update), Advisor's
didn't (though had links to the relevant KBs. which would of course give
more information [sometimes!]).

Of the ones reported as not installed, Speccy's list had 7 that
mentioned Intel, and the rest I think were all Microsoft - I think they
all had a KB number, anyway, and the ones I looked at all sounded like
Microsoft things. Advisor's list only had the three Adobe ones.

I'd say the list (from Speccy, anyway) was rather too big to manually go
through fetching and installing.

I can't say I've come to any conclusion (apart from the above one) about
the lists produced by these two utilities; I'd be interested in your
thoughts.

What has happened since 1979, I suspect, is that the spotting of mistakes has
become entirely associated with mean-spiritedness, snobbishness and
judgementalism. But...can be...funny and interesting.

If you want to study "what is missing from my system",
you'd use MBSA 2.3 for that. It only handles "security"
patches, not "Optional" patches.
The following is from MSBA 3.2. It claims "No security updates are
missing."

Searching for "4074598", this update is not listed in the "Windows
Security Updates", "Current Update Compliance"

I downloaded and tried to install each of the following six packages.
They all failed with message "The update is not applicable to your
computer".

Installation date: ?23/?02/?2018 12:41
Installation status: Failed
Error details: Code 80242016
Update type: Important
Is there some way of un-installing 4074598 so I can try to install it
again?

When I try Control Panel - Programs - Programs and Features -
Installed Updates, it does not show KB4074598 as having been
installed.

Thank you for your help.

If you want to study "what is missing from my system",
you'd use MBSA 2.3 for that. It only handles "security"
patches, not "Optional" patches.
The following is from MSBA 3.2. It claims "No security updates are
missing."
Searching for "4074598", this update is not listed in the "Windows
Security Updates", "Current Update Compliance"
I downloaded and tried to install each of the following six packages.
They all failed with message "The update is not applicable to your
computer".
2018-02 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for
Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4074598)
<<snip>>

I have a theory as to what the "independent variable" is in this mess.

I did an install of Win7 SP1 on the laptop, and patched it up,
stopping along the way and checking stuff.

I eventually got '598 installed, from WindowsUpdate (didn't need a
copy from catalog.update.microsoft.com).

Loading Image...

So I'm sailing along, installing stuff, and I get 2017-12 done,
and then Windows Update simply won't offer me anything moer.

I actually had to install 2017-12 twice. Once from Windows Update, where
it looked like it worked, but the update history said it failed. I used
the .msu from catalog.update.microsoft.com (204MB or so), and it installed
and passed. The install took less time, as I think it noticed all the
packages were already there in the package folder. Now, the only weird
thing I did, was try to install the "Security Only" version of '598 first,
and it still insisted that I needed to install the "Security Quality"
(which contains "plums" as well as "security updates").

I was looking for MSE Definition files, on the off chance that
I could toss those in and bring MSE definitions up to date.
And instead, I happened to find this in a search. It's a
new version of MSE code, and it happens to set the
QualityCompat registry setting.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14210/security-essentials-download

Note that, it's an evil EXE, in that it will switch your Windows
Update settings from "Never check..." to "Full Auto". I caught it
before it could rush my controlled experiment. I was doing the
updates in "Never check..." mode so I could control which ones
were getting done. And the mseinstall thing changed the setting.

Once I could find a QualityCompat in Regedit, after mseinstall,
then I knew I would be seeing 2018-02 offered in Windows Update.
I installed from Windows Update and it worked. It says success
and there were no errors.

So the only potential difference between what you did and
what I did, is I used mseinstall. There are many language
links on that page, and I used the English x64 version.

https://download.microsoft.com/download/A/3/8/A38FFBF2-1122-48B4-AF60-E44F6DC28BD8/enus/amd64/mseinstall.exe

And it has the capability to change the Windows Update setting
so watch it.

*******

And the weirdness of it all, is why is "mseinstall.exe" being
delivered outside of Windows Update ? Windows Update didn't
offer that to me, to break the logjam. I had to stumble on
it myself, purely by accident.

How do I remove 4074598 from Windows Update history, so I can install

Regarding;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat\cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc

I give it a value of 0. Is that the correct value for QualityCompat ?

I installed MS security essentials, no difference.

Is it possible to get help from Microsoft in this issue? I'd consider
paying a fee for competent tech support.

They are supposed to help with Windows Update problems.

They will ask for a credit card for "non-Windows" related
issues. Only certain topics are covered by support. Back in
the old Service Pack days, they would help you install
SP1 on Windows 7, for a period of one year after its release.

But in this case, you have a Windows Update problem and
they should be able to help with that.

The "dism" program has some capabilities, but they
differ between Windows 7 and Windows 10. The first
of these, for example, can cause Windows 10 to back
out a "half-installed" package. In the first command,
the package doesn't have a name, and it's merely
"revert whatever one is broken at the current time".

DISM /image:c:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions

DISM /image:c:\ /remove-package /packagename: etc.

I don't really know with certainty, what works
on Windows 7. The DISM on Windows 7 has some features
missing.

Even one-way packages (Servicing Stack updates), which
are marked "not removable", actually are removable. You
edit the manifest file, and you can change their status
so they can be backed out.

There are all sorts of tricks out there. But I wouldn't
try any of those, until I could determine what is
wrong first. I've not seen a tool yet, that can tell
you in plain English, what is going on.

If you look in the package folder, you'll see (by naming
convention), that one Cumulative contains hundreds or
thousands of individual packages. Somehow, the successes
of each little package are combined to give a status
for the KB. And the true success isn't known until the
reboot, when the system comes back up. Only then can
the installation process conclude "Success".

If this was my system, I'd be looking for the install log
next. And no, the log format isn't all that nice.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/902093/how-to-read-the-windowsupdate-log-file#!en-ca%2Fhelp%2F902093%2Fhow-to-read-the-windowsupdate-log-file

I spoke to MS's Indian tech support today. They basically said there
was a fault in the files for that update, and I shouldn't worry about
it, even without installing KB4074598 my computer would continue to
work and "you're good to go".

When I manually download and try to install each of the six install
packages for KB4074598, each time it tells me it's not suitable for my
computer. Hence, when the automatic Windows Update process tries to
install the appropriate package, it fails.

I'm tempted to simply give up trying to install this update KB4074598.
It's just too much effort trying to get it to work.

OK, get a copy of Process Monitor, and collect a trace while
DISM is doing the operation. Then, go to the file menu of
Process Monitor, and untick the little tick mark, to stop
the trace. Then use the filter menu, and select "Operation" "Is"
and there are operation types such as "CreateFile", "ReadFile",
and "WriteFile". You may be able to figure out what file it
attempted to access, and did not find.

Currently works on Vista or higher. You need an older version
to be able to work with WinXP.

To start with, I'm not recommending you try it that way.

I would only do it that way if I backed up C: and was willing
to restore after it failed in some way.

To do it offline, you:

1) Boot the installer DVD or the emergency boot CD that Windows 7 Backup
makes for you. There is a repair option that opens a Command Prompt
for you.

2) Then use the offline format.

DISM /image:c:\ /remove-package KB4074598

Then you boot from optical media, and ask for the Command Prompt option,
the "OS" it boots from is X:\ . The drive letters don't always have to
be in the order you think. You need to use the "dir" command and check
each drive letter, until you've assured yourself the letter is actual
C: that you want and not D: . I have at least one setup here, where
that DISM command uses D: .

Offline operations like that are normally used for "bricked"
systems, where you're trying to repair the OS while it's not in usage.
That's why I'm not placing a lot of weight on that option.
Sure, it's available. If you want to experiment, take precautions
and try it out for fun. I'm not convinced though, that it'll
fix everything up for you. With computers though, you never
know what will happen. That's part of the "fun" I guess.

One of the reasons I keep my C: partition small, is to make it
easy to back up. As an experimenter, I do temp backups *a lot*.

Even while I was running my Windows 7 test on the laptop,
I did two backups so I could revert quickly part way along
the way. I think the backup size (stored on another machine)
was only 9GB compressed each. That's what makes experiments
like this possible. A good safety net. With Macrium, I can
restore from a file share, so the backup doesn't even have
to be stored locally.

Just for fun, I was wondering whether it was possible to record
an entire Windows Update. And I discovered that Sysinternals Process
Monitor can do it. ProcMon has a Boot Trace option, which I've used before
while tinkering. And it records what happens when the system boots.

But it turns out, you can also leave Procmon running at shutdown
time too. I changed the recording mode from "RAM backing store"
the default, to ProcMon using a file for backing. Then, when you reach for
the controls and reboot the system, Procmon nicely closes the
current trace file. Then, when the system reboots, Procmon is
recording the Boot Trace. And it won't stop recording the Boot Trace
until you run Process Monitor again, when it will harvest the Boot
Trace it's been running on.

This gave me around 6GB of files, in two sets. The shutdown set. The startup set.

I won't go into the details of carving that mess. I carved a file log
for myself (what files are being touched). And a registry log (boring,
too much data!).

One thing I found, was a rather large...

C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

file. That one rolls over and starts a new file when it
gets big enough. There must be 10MB of new logs in that file
or so, related to 4074598.

I took one of the interesting identifiers from the CBS log, and
Googled it. And found this article, where a security catalog
made all the downloaded files look like they were corrupted.

http://www.tweaking.com/forums/index.php?topic=3310.0

So rather than bore you with more theories, I'd suggest a
look in that file as a start.

*******

Another curious aspect, is some "Fix" is applied, before the main
.cab is unpacked (after the download). I think BITS builds the .cab
from parts, and the download is not monolithic. It's built of a thousand
tiny pieces.

2018-03-04 17:43:35:193 492 b28 Handler Requesting post-reboot reporting for package
Package_for_RollupFix~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~7601.24055.1.3.
2018-03-04 17:43:35:193 492 b28 Handler Completed install of CBS update with
type=3, requiresReboot=1, nstallerError=0, hr=0x0

2018-03-04 17:43:35:224 252 8a8 AU >>## RESUMED ## AU: Installing update
[UpdateId = {73D175EA-2483-46D4-A8E3-1832178EB474}, succeeded]

Now, that means the C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log is written *one minute*
before ProcMon starts logging the BootUp :-/ Which means my damn
trace didn't catch the "good stuff". It's what you'd expect, as
some file moving that happens during the "spinning balls" phase,
you wouldn't want the OS to actually be running at the time.

Anyway, the summary of this post, is to check those two files for interesting stuff.

HTH,
Paul

What to do about the following?
Help please. Thank you.
2018-02 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based
Systems (KB4074598)
Installation date: ?23/?02/?2018 12:41
Installation status: Failed
Error details: Code 80242016
Update type: Important
A security issue has been identified in a Microsoft software product
that could affect your system. You can help protect your system by
installing this update from Microsoft. For a complete listing of the
issues that are included in this update, see the associated Microsoft
Knowledge Base article. After you install this update, you may have to
restart your system.
http://support.microsoft.com/help/4074598
http://support.microsoft.com/help/4074598
Did you read the "More Information" page ? That link expands to:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4074598/windows-7-update-kb4074598

Do you see this reference on that page ?

Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"
Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat"

That key is used by third-party AV programs, to indicate when the AV
is ready to receive a certain kind of update by Microsoft. The
Microsoft cumulative patch, cannot install unless that key is
set by your AV. The Microsoft patch checks for that, to prevents
crashes and calamities (quarantined files or whatever).

If you only use a Microsoft AV (MSE or Windows Defender or whatever),
then that may be considered to be set already. Microsoft can prepare
its own AV products, for the installation of that kind of patch.

"This article lists the error codes for Microsoft Windows Update.
You can use these error codes to verify information from the
Windows Update log file.

The log file is typically located in the following folder:

%systemroot%\windowsupdate.log ===> C:\Windows\windowsupdate.log
"

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/938205/windows-update-error-code-list

0x80242016 WU_E_UH_PostRebootUnexpectedState

The state of the update after its post-reboot
operation has completed, is unexpected.

Do you have an AMD processor in the computer ? There is a
specific patch that AMD processor users are supposed to install.

But I'd have a look at the log first, and see if there is
any more evidence.

Normally, I'd just tell you to go to

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com

and download "kb4074598" right from there and apply it.

But you can tell from the error code, that the update really
is not happy, and there's some pre-cursor it is missing. Forcing
that in now, isn't going to work.

I had an update here a few days ago, where the update kept
trying to install, yet, it was already installed. Eventually,
that stopped. So that's yet another state this crap can get
into, is succeeding and then retrying, as if the "success"
of the event wasn't logged properly. The Windows Update
logic knows if a patch installed, and it won't allow
exactly the same patch to install twice. It will allow
a *second version* of the same patch to install, but the
GUI doesn't have a notation to tell you what version this is.

At the moment, I'm not getting any sort of encouragement in my
search engine, so I don't have any other leads to go on.

I use Kaspersky AV. It sets;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat\cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc

to 0.

not 0x000000 or anything, just 0.

If Kaspersky is the issue, I would expect thousands of people to be
reporting this issue.

But it should not be an issue, because the above key is set to zero.

Also, when i exit Kaspersky, the problem remains.

It says;

"Because of an issue that affects some versions of antivirus software,
this fix is being applied only to the computers on which the antivirus
ISV have updated the ALLOW REGKEY"

Should I set this key to non zero, eg 1? Just for fun (because I'm a
masochist) I tried setting this key to 1, and it shows same results.

I also use Macrrium Reflect backup, but presumably that is irrelevant.

The state of the update after its post-reboot operation has completed is
unexpected.

Maybe this means it cannot do it's "moving files while rebooting" magic?
I also found reference to WU not being able to acquire a user token, but
that one is very old and only says to restart the Windows Update service
(you've already tried to reboot).

You can always try to reset Windows Update and re-download the update,
but you will loose your update history:

- Stop BITS and Windows Update Services
- Rename C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution to *.bak
- Reboot and search for updates again

Could be your Anti-Virus is blocking some changes, but it's a longshot,
I doubt Windows lets the A/V run while it is patching files on reboot...

Does "losing your update history" just mean you lose some sort of log
file so that _you_ can't check which updates you've had, or does it mean
next time you check for updates (manually or automatically), you'll have
inflicted on you again every update back to the year dot?

It just means that when you go to Windows Update in Control Panel, and
you click on View Update History, it will be empty. You can still see
all the updates that are installed from Programs And Features.

OK, so it just removes the information from one of the places _you_
could see it, it doesn't remove it from the _computer_ thus making it
then download them all over again.
