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.
