That all looks OK now.
What happens now if you attempt to scan for Windows Updates, and then download/install them?

Please look in the Update History, and right-click on each of the failing updates
what error code is showinng against each, on the latest round?
If one is different to the rest, try unticking that one in the install list, and just installing the others - then download the odd one from the KB article, and install it offline.

KB2592687 code 800F0826
KB2719857 code 800F0826
KB2732487 code 80070005

And I've tried installing them individually, no success.

I probably wasn't clear enough in my original post, but I'd already done everything in the link you suggested before I started here. The problem ultimately seems to be that KB2732487 isn't installing (code 80070005) and that is stopping the others from installing. When I run the "fixit" it tells me everything has been fixed, but it still fails to install. And when I install KB2732487 manually it refuses, saying "this update is not applicable to your machine". So I'm stuck in a loop - the other updates won't install unless I install an update that isn't applicable on my machine so won't install.

Will anything short of reinstalling Win7 fix that?

Two supplementary questions. If I must reinstall Windows, should I reinstall from the DVD then reinstall all known updates then install antivirus, or should I reinstall Windows from the DVD, install Microsoft antivirus, then install all the subsequent updates?

Second question - I currently have two hard drives formatted as RAID0 as I require fast read speeds for a certain appoication I run. If I formatted them as RAID1 (I am told that also can have fast read speeds, though not always as fast as RAID0), will that lessen the chance of getting stupid errors and file corruption like what I'm experiencing now? Many thanks for advice.

It almost certainly doesn't need a clean install - a repair install would probably work, if we can't fix things manually
Bear in mind that we've done a fair amount of work on the system in the intervening time, so results now could be very different from what they were then.

The 80070005 error is a permission denied one - and often indicates corruption of either the Catroot2 folder, or the SoftwareDistribution folder.
However, in this case, the MGADiag report is clear - shich indicates that the Catroot2 folder is probably OK.

So the likelihood is that there is a problem with permissions in the registry.
Please read teh following thread - specifically, the one from Tim Quan tagged as an Answer - windows update error 80070005


See if you reckon you can cope with it 'as is' - if you need further explanation, ask away!

Waste of time I'm afraid. Installed subinacl OK but when I came to run it all I got was an error message in the cmd box,

'subinacl' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file

I also tried to install via a "super administrator" account. Again it failed and reverted.

Now what?

Edit: just read elsewhere that apparently subinacl doesn't work with Win 7 64 bit (though it installs...)

It actually works very well - I use it frequently on my own machine!

If it's failing, it's either because it wasn't installed correctly, or because the system is badly corrupted.

Back in the morning with some details....
