Refurb PC, Reinstalled Win 7, check for updates fails

The system came preinstalled with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and kept failing. I tried clean boot, resetting update, sfc scan, memtest and everything was fine. I reinstalled windows and have gone through all of the above again, as well as using Microsoft's FixIt tools. I get error C80003FA. Can't get anything to get these updates to go through. I can send the computer back, but would rather fix it and get it deployed to user. Any ideas? Thanks!

Did you reinstall windows on top of existing one or you formatted the drive and installed Windows?

Windows Update error 80244016, 8024402f, or c80003fa - Windows Help

Also check to make sure the complete date and time is correct on the computer.

The date and time are correct. I have internet explorer and Chrome if that is what you are asking. I'm able to use the machine normally. I just can't get the updates to go through. I did the waiting thing. I've also changed the system settings to never check for updates then forced it to check. Went back to automatic and forced it to check, with the same results. Since I had read a good bit before reinstalling, as soon as I reinstalled, before I installed anything (only thing I have installed at this point is Chrome), I tried to update. So it isn't the firewall or antivirus.

All I'm doing is Google your trouble codes and finding what Microsoft suggests to solve the problem. I really don't know if it will solve your problems.

Thank you. I've gone through everything I could find, as well. I feel I'm just repeating the process. I know there are guys out there that can analyze the CBS log and maybe offer some insight. I appreciate your time.
