Updating this topic to report that  the July 11 Updates all installed successfully:

Cumulative update
Adobe Flash Security Update
Malicious Software Removal Tool

Hopefully this means things are fine now. However, I ran the update fixit tool again and it found and fixed all the same problems.  So not sure what that means.

September Windows update is failing at every day's new attempt.

I ran the troubleshooter and it performed the same fixes as before.  It says it fixed everything except this one:

Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings !

My proxy settings are :
Automatic Proxy setup: Automatically detect settings: ON

Manual Proxy: use a proxy server - OFF

However, I cannot click the SAVE button as it is grayed out.

I'm going to post on the Sysnative site now.  I'll update this post with any further developments.

As you can see, the Sysnative Windows Update forum is very busy so the response won't as fast as here.  :)

I see, and I've already dropped to page 2.  And no new visits to my topic. :(


It's also rather depressing to see so many people having problems with windows updates.

[Just a note: I do now have the Creator update, which all seems to be working fine.]

Unfortunately, the analysts don't have unlimited time and can only work on so many threads at a time.  Just like malware removal, it takes time to review the logs, create instructions and go through the next steps.  In addition, several of the analysts also have to take time to review and approve proposed responses prepared by those who are in the final stages of training in the Windows Update Academy.

I get it.  So I am patiently waiting. (or not so patiently, depending on your definition ^_^ )

Thankfully update failure is not an issue that keeps me from using my computer, so its a lot lower priority item than someone facing a BSOD every day.  I'm grateful I'm not in the queue for that one!

I haven't been offered the 9/25 update yet that you announced here: http://www.landzdown.com/security-alerts-briefings/microsoft-security-updates-for-september-2017/msg195671/#msg195671

The migration to the new server has been completed.  However, as stated in the announcement, there is an issue with HTTPS resulting in a certificate warning when browsing the site.  The new host is working with the Admins who did the migration to resolve it.  It also may take a while for your DNS to update.

I didn't receive any certificate warnings, so hopefully that is now resolved.  Still working through the series of diagnostics and attempted fixes.

Except for my occasional  techno-feeb freakout, things are going smoothly so far. :)

They've been working on the cert issue on the back end.  As to the help you're receiving, I have the advantage of being able to follow the private discussions and know they are evaluating everything thoroughly.

Thanks, I really appreciate your involvement in the process. It gives me extra peace, since this is the first time I've let anybody but Landzdown into the deep dark recesses of my PC. ^_^

The intricacies of Windows Update are complex but they know what they're doing.  It has really helped having Brian as an instructor since he was also trained in malware removal.  That "cross platform", so to speak, resulted in the usage of FRST for finding files, making it much easier than done previously.
