Windows 7: Windows Update Error after restoring system

Windows Update Error after restoring system

After a hard drive crash and system restore I'm getting error below after a brief update progress bar.

I've run the Update Repair tools many times, Manually stopped and started services. MERGED default version of BITs and Windows Update services.
Also ran Defender offline, use McAfee, System Mechanic and RegCurePro to keep system cleaned and tuned. I've fallen behind on updates and need to get this resolved. I've also moved on and can't go back to that restore point to retry. Looking for suggestions

Hello Swawindsail and welcome to the forums

Firstly, I would like you to restore any changes made by System Mechanic and RegCurePro. Registry cleaners/optimisers in general are complete junk and should be avoided at great lengths. It's very hard for them to distinguish what should be removed and what should stay and more often than not, they will delete things they shouldn't. If you would like to see the sort of damage that they can do to Windows (especially Windows Update) then take a look here:

Microsoft Updates has gone crazy

It completely killed it. So restoring the changes made by these programs may in fact solve your problem. If it doesn't, follow these instructions:

Not sure how I would roll back changes made by RegCure..

Also looked at the Update Readiness tool and see it requires Service Pack 1... My restore was prior to SP1 installation and now I can't get to updates.. Is there a way it install SP1 manually?

Thanks for your reply,

If there isn't an obvious feature in the interface then just cross your fingers and hope it didn't do any harm! Only time will tell though.

The SURT is compatible for all versions of Windows 7 - SP1 or not Download and install (run) it, then upload the logs that the instructions ask for.

Hi Seawindsail,

We'll have to come back to your SFC problem, that isn't a very nice error at all. Could you complete the rest of the steps in the instructions please? #3, #4 and #5 specifically.

Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service

This happens if the TrustedInstaller (Windows Modules Installer) service is disabled. Use these steps to reset the service startup type.
1. Click Start, type Services.msc
2. Double-click Windows Modules Installer
3. Set its Startup type to Manual
4. Click OK.

The TrustedInstaller service has full access to Windows Resource Protection (WRP) files and registry keys, and this services needs to be running in order to restore missing or corrupted WRP resources. The TrustedInstaller service starts on-demand when running the System File Checker.

Windows Modules Installer service startup type was manual? Can you start it succesfully?

Also check service Windows Management Instrumentation
Startup type=Automatic?
Can you start it (or is it already started?)?
