You probably need to get the BSOD problem fixed first, then fix the Windows Update problem, then come back to this.

When you uninstalled Avast, did you use the Avast uninstall utility ?

Then let Noel know in your Windows Update thread.
Googling 0x80071A91 seems it might be related to Windows Update problems, or SFC errors, or ...
See if Noel can find anything in the Windows Update issue that might help fix this issue.
