Hello,

Windows Update is continually prompting to install KB890830 (Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - May 2015), even though it has already been successfully installed...

Hi and welcome to Sysnative. Please do the following.

Retrieve Components Hive

  • Please download the Freeware RegBak from here: Acelogix Software - Download products
    You will find it at the bottom of the page that the link brings you to.
  • Go ahead and install this program and accept all the defaults. After the last install screen the program should open.
  • Click the New Backup button. Accept the defaults and simply click Start.
  • When it says Finished successfully, click the Close button.
  • This will bring you back to the main screen of the program. You will see one entry in this list with the date that you did it. Right-click on this line-item and select Explore Backup...
  • This will bring you into the folder where the backup was made. You should see a Users folder and a Windows folder along with a couple other files. Double-click on the Windows folder to open it. Then open the System32 folder and then config folder. You should see around 6 files in here, one of which is named COMPONENTS.
  • Copy the COMPONENTS file to your Desktop. If the COMPONENTS file does not exist, please fetch it instead from C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS.
  • Now right click on the COMPONENTS file that is on your desktop and select Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder.
  • Then please upload the zip file (COMPONENTS.zip) to your favourite file sharing website (it will be too big to upload here). Examples of services to upload to are Dropbox or One Drive or SendSpace and then just provide the link in your reply.
  • You can close any open windows you have as well as the RegBack program now.

Hi,

Sorry about that. I foolishly thought since I already generated those logs on the same thread for zcomputerwiz, I could use them again and expedite things...

In any event, as requested, please find the links to the newly generated logs below:

SFCFix.zip

CheckSUR.zip

Thank you for your patience and ongoing assistance. It is certainly appreciated...

OK...sounds good. Just thinking...Should I manually run Windows Update again to see if it happens again or should I just let it sit and potentially happen in automatic mode?

Thanks again for your time, effort and expertise in this matter. It is most definitely appreciated!
