Windows 7: Checking for updates of my windows 7 system no longer responds

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1-64bit.
 
 

Could you please reply me to solve this problem? I have scanned again but
I didn't see any of those threats in this path '\Windows\Microsoft Antimalware\Support' and even this path isn't available, although I let the Defender scan.
The problem still is going on.!!!!
As a result, how can I upload 4 log files???

What were the results of SFC -SCANNOW Command and Repair Install I suggested in Posts #19 and 23?

Thank you so much, I think there is fairly a misunderstanding, I would like to ask that when I scanned with the Defender, then I have checked this path '\Windows\Microsoft Antimalware\Support' in my USB Flash Drive. However, I didn't see any files or anything and even this path isn't available, although I let the Defender scan.

Thank you so much indeed Gregrocker, I have done the SFC-Scan, and it found some problems and repair them in the first scan, but when I noticed that the problem still going on, I have said to myself that I have to do more scans with SFC. However, in these scans, SFC didn't found any problems.

For 'Repair install', how can I do it as long as I don't have a Windows 7 installation disc?

On the other hand, the Repair install' maybe will reinstall the a new version on my system. As a result, my data will remove. As it is described there:
NOTE: Be sure to backup anything that you do not want to lose first to be extra safe.

Did you even read the linked tutorial for Repair Install?

All of these questions are answered therein.

In fact I stated in post 23 that an installer was included.

It keeps all programs, settings and data in place while reinstalling the OS.

You should always have your data backed up in case of HD or other failure.

Yes, you are quite right, but I couldn't do that because this tool of windows no longer responds, when I click on it to make a backup.



On the other hand, Should I do anything to return my data and settings or everything will still as it was after the repair completes.

Data will still be in-place after this in-place Upgrade unless there is a catastrophic failure to HD or during repair so that even a boot disk cannot retrieve it. This hasn't happened in any of the countless Repair Installs I've helped with.

Nevertheless back up by dragging your active User folders (Documents, Pictures, Music, Favorites, etc) to External, another HD, DVD, flash stick or upload 7gb free with each Windows Live ID to Skydrive - this can be easily done with Sync Any Folder to Your SkyDrive Account | PCWorld

Make sure you have everything you need in those folders, or drag it separately.
