      Spending hours of research on this update failure KB4505217 (Security Update for SQL Server 2014). I’ve run every troubleshooter I can find, reset ever folder that I’ve been told to reset and read every log file created. SFC /Scannow reports something it can’t correct and to read the logs. I read the logs and I’m told to look for the word “corrupt” but it’s not in the log file.

      My quarterly rollup installed as does Security Essentials definitions.

      Any help forward would so be appreciated.

      Did you try DISM ?

      Do you have the recent SHA2 and Service Stack Update (SSU) patches installed?

        /RestoreHealth is not available on Windows 7. See #1874188

      Yet I think that it is available offline (booted to a command prompt) and using the Offline option.

      MS recommend using the “System Readiness Tool” for W7 as DISM isn’t available.
