Windows 7 with SP1 continued from prior question on Gateway

Back again with confirmation that SP1 and MS Security Essentials did install successfully on January 27, 2020 but Malicious Software components fail consistently from Windows Update.  When installing IE11 from the above link, BSOD and after second reboot and attempt, the update to IE11 began and then was stopped stating other items must be installed first.  No Clue which they could be.  Sigh.  Valiant efforts all around.  

When attempting to install the two items that pop up as important prerequisites (but undefined), error 8024605 blocks the installation efforts.  sfc /scannow finds no problems.  Event log full of consistent errors that Microsoft Antimalware cannot update signatures.  That's event code 2001.

Does this merit a new Question?  Or is it a lost cause.

let the windows 7 check for updates with MS. Most security/critical updates should still be available.
usually the IE 11 update detail should include which updates are needed.
See the following links
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2847882/prerequisite-updates-for-internet-explorer-11

see if you can go straight to win10 from this setup.  You may need to use an older version 1607 if not 1511...

All issues were resolved after uninstalling the MS Security Essentials, downloading and installing IE11, and prereq KB3033929 which was required to install McAfee protections.

Did not visit the http site above, showed not secure. Http vs https

Thank you all.  Miles of smiles.
