    OK
    Let's pretend your system is working now(I sent a prayer along with that comment)
    I'm going to have to send you to MalwareBytes forum to see if they can figure out those error messages.
    They deal with that much more then I do.

    You'll need to register there, create a new topic
    Topic title; MalwareBytes will not function, or something similar
    https://forums.malwarebytes.com/foru...alwarebytes-3/

    If you can post the MBAM log you did here that shows all the error messages I think it would help also, they may ask you zip and upload the files to be examined.

    You can post the link to this topic too if you like.

    Ok managed to start Windiws installer service in safe mode with a registry adjustment typed into command prompt - now uninstalling that Windows update which I didn't want anyway.


    It's gone but not sure that was even the thing ?

    Have you tried to boot into normal mode again?

    As far as being malware related, I don't think so.
    What I would had suggested next would likely had been an online scanner
    As far as trying to diagnose what happened to windows,
    also - I am unable to turn on windows security
    we had enabled windows security, and it picked the worse time in the world to start downloading updates.

    I have no idea, my fingers are crossed that if more updates come in it don't do that again!

    Let's wait and see what the tech guys at MBAM forums suggest first.
