Windows 7: Windows Updates will not run - Win & professional 64bit

Windows Updates will not run - Win 7 Professional 64bit

Hello -

I am having a problem installing Windows Updates. When I go to Win Update and click "Check for Updates" I get error: 80070005 (see attached .jpg) .

I had a webhp infection and the folks at Malewarebytes forum helped me clean that up - they say I am clean of maleware and referred me to their computer support forum who then referred me here.

I have followed your instructions of what to do before I post here.
1. Installed SURT
2. Ran SFC Scan
3. Windows Update error code is attached
4. C:\windows\logs folder does not exist - I also searche CBS and could not find it

Some other oddities that may or may not be associated with my issue:
1. Cannot update Adobe Acrobat X Standard
2. Cannot reinstall Google Toolbar
3. Java updates will not complete

I am most concerned about the Windows Updates - I suspect the other issues are related but I am obviously not sure.

Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I've already done the Windows Updates Posting Instructions.

Did I somehow get two seperate threads going when I corrected the heading on my original post?

Don't think so?

I can read Smiley, so don't worry about it

OK - the folders and files do exist, and they are visible if you ask Windows nicely

Open Windows Explorer
Click on Organize..
Click on Folder and Search options
Click on View
UNtick 'Hide extensions.....'
put the radio-button blob in 'Showhidden files, folders, and drives'

click Apply and OK

Now look for the CBS folder
