Windows 7: Error 80070002 cannot update

Thankyou Tom.. you help is very much appreciated.

Attached is the Componants file ziped up. I also put in the 3 log files just in case.

I was thinking I'd have to try my luck at taking a ghost snapshot image of my system as it stands right now, and then wipe the drive and reinstall a new copy of windows7 to see if it will make the missing directories so I can back them up and then restore my original image. But if someone can help me by figuring out the source then that would be excellent and have a probably higher success rate based on my past luck.

So I re-built a new windows 7 and it has the folders that my original copy says are not there. So I copied the files over to a flash drive with good intention of copying the missing directories over.

Here is the kicker... you can't do it in safe mode.. so I booted into the recovery command prompt only to find the directories are actually there. You just can't see them. Can't remove them. And windows still gives me that error.

What next??
