Windows 7 Home Premium X64 - Updates all Failing. (8007007e)

Hi Guys,
In the past i have tried to fix these errors that i continually have.
I have tried many different types of fixes and just seem to be getting knowhere.
The majority of the issues have an error code of 8007007e.
Please see below two pictures, one showing my failed history, and the second a list of 51 important updates that i haven't been receiving since...12/4/2011
Would anyone happen to know of a solution!?
Thank you in advance!

Cheers,
Jamie

xown123,

* Have you a System Restore point created PRIOR to the problem{s} occurring?

* Have you a Win 7 DVD ?


* Wouldn't hurt to do a SFC...

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

It's a 315Mb download, but you might want to consider installing the Windows Update Readiness Tool first.

Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) [August 2011]

Also, when you get to a stage when you can install updates, install them in small batches rather than a huge bunch of them.

You can also get Microsoft support for Windows updates problems.

The Windows Updates Log File can be useful too.

Hello,
Thanks guys for the quick replies, as i could not find my Win7 disc i went with seavixen32's suggestion and the hotfix was spot-on the correct thing i needed. Then i installed the updates in a cluster of 10 each time and it worked perfectly, thank you very much.
Regards,
Xown
