    [Win7SP1 x64] Security Updates Failing 80073701

    Hello and TIA for Your Help!

    30 years IT, but cannot solve my partners Lenovo Notebook issue running Windows Updates on Windows 7 64 bit.

    Security updates are failing due to missing files.

    Have tried every fix - WU troubleshooter, SUR, etc. which brought me to your forum.

    CBS.zip attached.

    Not able to attach CBS.zip - too large I'm assuming. Directions to script the larger files takes me to a 404.

    Yes, please, Brian!

    I am missing a number of files as the log indicates.

    Hello and welcome

    Due to the precise nature of your corruption, you will receive help from a user named softwaremaniac. He's one of our senior trainees here who's in his final phrase of his studies and needs to gain some real world experience in specific areas of Windows Update. This means that he'll be assisting you, but that I will first need to double check and approve his fixes before he posts them to you. If anything this is a good thing for you because it means that you've got at least two of us watching over your thread, but it will unfortunately add a slight delay between each reply. I hope that you understand and can accept the need for us to train up new members in this way in order to carry on doing what we do here, however, if for any reason you object to this setup, I will happily take on your thread myself.

    Thank you very much for your understanding. We'll be with you very shortly.

    Hello and welcome to Sysnative!

    Step#1 - Fix Corrupt Files

    7. Run the System Update Readiness Tool (SURT) again.
    8. When the SURT finishes installing, copy (Ctrl + C) and paste (Ctrl + V) the contents of the entire SURT log into your next post please. If it's too large to paste into your post, please zip up the file and attach.

    Please check for updates and report back.

    Re: Security Updates Failing Win7-64 80073701

    Could not check for updates with error 80244019.

    Ran Windows Update Troubleshooter which fixed a couple problems then tried again.

    Checked for updates successfully and found 2 updates to run.

    Tried to run and failed with error 80246007, then failed again with error 80073701.

    Re: Security Updates Failing Win7-64 80073701

    SFC Scan


    1. Click on the Start button and in the search box, type Command Prompt
    2. When you see Command Prompt on the list, right-click on it and select Run as administrator
    3. When command prompt opens, copy and paste the following commands into it, press enter after each

      sfc /scannow

      Wait for this to finish before you continue

      copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"
    4. This will create a file, cbs.txt on your Desktop. Please attach this to your next post.

    Re: Security Updates Failing Win7-64 80073701

    Attempt to install only one of the updates. When it fails, please attach the latest CBS.log you have. Please provide me with the KB number of the update you have tried to install.

    Re: Security Updates Failing Win7-64 80073701

    Tried installing two updates individually from both Windows Updates and from Standalone. They were:
    windows6.1-kb2952664-v23-x64_a7f762a22bf3f7f659dc78d63e9dc8f3529a286d.msu
    and
    windows6.1-kb4034664-x64_e4daa48a7407d5921d004dd550d62d91bf25839e.msu

    Both generate error code 80073701.

    Have run through all the workarounds, Windows Update Troubleshooter, SURT, etc.

    Sorry for delay - hadn't seen your most recent response, and got involved in other projects.

    Regards,
    Phil
