    Win7 - Security updates failing since 2017-10

    Hello.
    After fixing my main PC with the help of this forum, I have another patient here.
    Windows 7 pro x64, fails to install the monthly security update KB4041678 from 2017-10. Error code is 80073712.
    Of course, all subsequent updates also failed.
    Again, all advice from the web failed, so I just kept using the machine with a somewhat bad feeling.

    Maybe there's still hope for this machine...

    CBS.zip - Google Drive
    SFCFix.txt

    Thanks in advance

    Hi!
    The operation completed successfully without asking for reboot.
    Upon shutting the system down both 2017-10 and 2018-11 updates tried to install but still failed.

    Re: Win7 - Security updates failing since 2017-10

    Step#1 - Capture Process Monitor Trace
    1. Download and run Process Monitor. Leave this running while you perform the next steps.
    2. Try installing the update just like you have in the past.
    3. Stop Process Monitor as soon as it fails. You can simply do this by clicking the magnifying glass on the toolbar as shown below.


    4. Select the File menu...Save... and save the file to your desktop. This is likely the default location. The name (unless changed) will be LogFile.PML. This is fine.
    5. Zip up and attach the LogFile.PML file as well as your CBS.log

    Okay, so I did a fresh reboot, ran procmon and instantly executed the KB4041678 update from file.
    (Can't do it via the windows control panel since this machine is part of a domain - usually updates install upon shutdown)
