Windows 7: Cannot Complete Installing Updates, or Check for New Updates

No error codes. Just an endless cycle of "Restart to install important updates."

What happens if you open Windows Updates, and run a Check for Updates?

Thought I'd give this another bump now that the holidays are over.

No need to wait that long - I've been around all through
Sorry about that - this seems to have dropped out of my radar.

Since it's been so long since we were active, please run another SFC /SCANNOW and post the cbs.log again.

As I remembered - of the 38000+ lines in the log, 1700+ are near-fatal error messages, many of which seem to occur on every boot.


Most common error types are
STATUS_RM_NOT_ACTIVE -
E_UNEXPECTED

They all appear to be related to the Components store - which is (if I understand it right) where all the bits of Windows are stuck together.

There are also a load of
ERROR_FAIL_REBOOT_REQUIRED
which is fairly self-explanatory.

Since we started this thread, MS have updated the CheckSUR tool - so it may be a good idea to try running that again, and see if it finds/fixes anything new.
Please delete the old one, then
Please download and save the CheckSUR tool from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821
(you'll need to look in the details for Method 2)

Run it - The tool can take anywhere from 5 mins to a couple of hours to run (or 'Install') depending on how much it has to do, and may exit silently - it may appear to freeze for most of that time, but be patient.
The result is logged in the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log file - and an archive …\checksur.persist.log file

Then zip the CheckSUR.log and attach it to a reply.

Not great, but nowhere near as bad as some I've seen in the past week or so.

These files are all from RTM Windows 7 updates so I'll have to go on a hunt for them - back later (shout if you haven't heard in 24 hours!)
