This also clarifies a bit the theory you had trents regarding continuously updating Windows 7.
By (fortunate) chance - I had a Windows 7 image which was last updated in April of 2015. In April 2015, Windows 7 Update engine actually did work.
However, we can now freely say, based on tests, that if you did not update Windows 7 since April 2015, your Windows 7 Update is very likely very broken.
You need four things to fix it:
• April 2015 servicing stack update for Windows 7 file
• April 2016 Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup update file
• May 2016 update rollup
• July 2016 update rollup file (which includes June 2016 updates).
April 2016 Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup update file can only be downloaded using Microsoft Internet Explorer and no other browser from
[You need to install the Microsoft Update Catalog Add-on to be able to Add the downloads to download "basket"...]
You need either a 32-Bit file or a 64-Bit file.
32-Bit Update for Windows 7 (KB3125574) 5/16/2016 316.0 MB
64-Bit Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3125574) 5/16/2016 476.9 MB
Would be nice to refresh those systems with a one disk solution.
I personally have witnessed malware detection inside a Windows Operating System .iso.
I was eager to test OS before they came out in the old days and they would have some "leaked" builds back then.
I then learned how dangerous that is because there are ways for them to inject malware into the Operating System installation that is already there, when you first install Windows and before you even install any antivirus. I went out of my way to wait to get Microsoft official downloads from TechNet and MSDN or find someone with access to official downloads of the OS.
*Of course* you can role the dice.
But it's not the same as rolling the dice on software you install, on already installed Windows on which Antivirus/antimalware is already installed and running.
I did not go into the details of this but if you can, get the real deal. I don not know if simply scanning the iso is enough.
Of course the big picture here is... do you understand that Windows 7 Update is broken unless someone recently did what post#1 of this thread says to do?
Old Windows 7 installations are all broken out of the box. That is the very point of this thread.
Interesting info about updates (W7 and W10) http://www.computerworld.com/articl...sers-face-update-bloat-and-tough-choices.html
