    Windows 8.1 x64

    Only time will tell I suppose if the system is functioning. If it starts acting up again, perhaps attach another copy of the WindowsUpdate.log to see if it shows anything different from the first one.

    We still need to determine what might have gotten the system messed up in the first place. But if something is corrupting the updates, it appears it is happening on both systems, so it might be some software, or even the network link since you are not running any anti-virus beside Defender.

    After running the DISM command in the lap which repaired corruption, I ran SFC which reported all is ok. Usually do it the other way around.
    I do not want to confuse you as I am working on 2 pcs the desk and laptop.
    Both were repaired by DISM.
    The lap has an A11 and the desk A3 BIOS. I have heard it is dangerous to update the BIOS; also, due to my upgrading from Win 7 to 8 then 8.1 Dell only recognizes the pc as Win 7 so I am not sure it would update the BIOS correctly.

    Maybe the recent Windows updates have nothing to do with this but MS is asking to remove 4 of the updates and closing down one of them.
    I do not know whether to remove the updates or wait till next week to see what goes.
    I will try to send another log file to see if any changes are red flags.
