Solved After doing Disk Cleanup Windows finds new update?

February 21, 2017 at 10:51:51
Specs: Windows 7 64
I performed a clean up on the system files and after restarting the computer to finish the process Windows found a critical update KB2813347 which looks to be from 2013. Is it possible it got stuck somewhere while I was doing a clean install of windows 7 a couple of months back?

Most likely it was installed originally but subsequently something went wrong with it. If an update gets lost somehow, it should be picked up during the next update session and applied again - Windows Update always checks to see if you are up to date or not. I think you were unlucky, this sort of thing is not a common occurrence.

You say you performed a clean up on the system files. Not sure how you went about that but it sounds as if you removed a file or files appertaining to that particular update. After all, the problem came along just after that, not immediately after the clean install

Take care though. If you go around removing system files you might stop Windows from loading.

I went to disk cleanup and selected clean up system files and rebooted the computer, After the restart the computer found the update.

What you did was quite reasonable - Disk Cleanup shouldn't have removed anything important like an update. However, if the update is now back in you should be OK. It is not always possible to be certain what causes these odd glitches. There have even been odd times when information has been retained in the motherboard components.

Thank you for the response but it is a little scary to see something like this occur, Knowing a critical update was never installed can be quite frustrating. I had assumed another update possibly superseded this one but I was wrong.

Interesting, No reason for me to do another complete reinstall since I ran into this issue correct?

I don't think so. Better re-read my #5 just in case because I did some editing.
