I tried to install KB3185330 and like the Rollups it ended up Reverting the Changes.  Is there a log where I can bet more detail as to what it did not like?  CBS for today will not allow access.  Is there a way to close it so it becomes accessable? Is there another log. 

I looked into Woody and it looks good.  The problem is that I CAN'T get a password.  I registered and was told a password would be e-mailed to me.  24hours and nothing has shown up.  There seem to be other parts to 4105549.  I will try them and see what happens.

A lot of information, Thanks.  I DON'T see where he references the issue about only the Security portion will install.

4015549 still has a problem installing.  I had to go to 4015546 which installs with no problem. I have had to take the same action for 6 months.  I was hoping Microsoft would fix this as I am not the only person facing whatever the problem is.

Thank you for the information.  I was clear and made sense.  I will keep your references handy in case I need a download.  The C++ Redistributable are still there. The Visual Studio is gone.
Let's see what happens.
Again thanks for the reason behind all the C++ versions.  I assume they are not updates, but for some reason each is standalone .

I can understand that.  Why are they only referenced in the Register and don't exist in the C: drive files?  If an application has needs, it should include it in its creation.  We had to do this in the OLD days when we LINKED all the pieces needed.  I retired from IBM just as Object programming got started.

Correction.  MSVCRT.dll
I found it is a part of Visual Studio.  I NO LONGER have Visual Studio Installed.  The Register has references to where it no longer exists.  CCLEANER and TWEAKING.EXE do NOT clean these up for some reason.
I did find an application(REFLECTdl) which references MSVCRT.dll.

In another discussion, it was pointed out that I may not be able to find C++ references in my files.  Steve Miller also mentioned MVSCRT as what may be referenced in a program using his DEPENDS.EXE.  I also CANNOT find mvscrt references in the files, but there are a number of them in the Register.  This seems very strange.
Yes, I won't remove anything.  I am just curious as I trace a path that seems to go nowhere.
Steve also mentioned that it is VERY difficult to identify what language an application was written in.

I have the following in Program and Features. They also show in REVO.  But Windows Explorer can't find them.  They are referenced in the Register with no relation to an application location.

I am trying to clean them up figuring if I can't find them then no application is using them.
I would like to hide them before deletion to be sure as there is no way to identify who uses an application.  I have done a backup.  Could I restore just an app if needed?

General Software News, Updates & Discussions / Windows Server ?

How can I find out what Windows Server Release I have installed.  I did find I have DHCP turned off.  So many updates refer to Server Releases. Specifically, today kb4012218 failed and refers to Server release 2003 as I recall.

Internet / URL?

What free tools are available to supply information about a URL.  I would like to investigate the source of URL's that come with junk.

Security Software Programs / Re: MVPS Hosts
« on: February 08, 2017, 06:45:37 PM »
I have installed HostsMan. I selected MVPS Hosts and HP Hosts(Ad and tracking servers only).
HP Hosts downloads as I changed to and checked for duplicates. I now have a file of 57,801 names. Over the last 2 weeks some IP accesses have slowed to a crawl.
Could there be a relationship between the Host file and them? Should I leave the HP Hosts alone when they are updated?  Should I ONLY download MVPS Hosts?
I run Windows 7 Professional 64bit on an Intel 930.

Thanks to all.  I am going to remove AVAST. My system access to certain sites has slowed considerably over the last 2 weeks and AVAST seems to be controlling to much.  Starting FireFox and Cox E-Mail have slowed and COX E-Mail has become a disaster with their feedback site not existing when you try and tell them they are a disaster.
Thanks again.

Security Software Programs / Penetration Testing
« on: February 07, 2017, 06:35:36 PM »
I run Microsoft Security Essentials, AVAST, CCleaner, Malwarebytes and to try and make sure my system is secure. I run on a TP-Link Router.
Does it make any sense for a home user to run Penetration Testing from Metasploit?
I hope it would be overkill, but in today's environment how can you be sure.

Yes I have run them. I have also run other anti-virus programs and Malwarebyte.
