Does anyone have a solution for Microsoft Update KB3033929 failing?

I have a Toshiba TECRA R950 Laptop running Windows 7 that will install all updates except for KB 3033929. It attempts to install, but fails and reverts changes during boot.

To no avail we have already tried Clean Boot, Manual Install after Download from Microsoft Website, and Mr. Fix It.

Does anyone know of any other fixes?

Try and download the standalone installer.. if it fails then simply hide the update. many people have problems with this update

Also try the Windows Update Troubleshooter site and the Fix It that is there

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

Then run the Windows Update Readiness tool if the FixIt does not work.

Thank you for your input -- unfortunately, none of these suggestions have solved this issue.

The next step is to run Windows 7 Repair Install. You need a working recovery partition or the Windows 7 DVD. Here is a Seven Forums Tutorial to assist you with this.

Yes, that is correct.  Sadly, that is exactly what we have to do.  We were desperately hoping that would not be necessary.

Thanks all,
