Can't install Windows Update, .net 4.0 , security essentials
Upon several fresh installations of Windows 7 SP1 on a formatted HDD, on a new computer that I have accumulated my windows will not update. I usually get a 8e5e03fa on the windows update window. All other software installs and works flawlessly.
At first I thought it was a rootkit or some sort and after scanning with Malwarebytes, GMER, DDS, Combofix, TDSKILLER, and even after changing hard drives the problem persists.
I have ran sfc /scan and attempted to fix errors to no avail. I ran it 3x as directed. I am not able to look or copy at the log file, it says I do not have permissions even though I am the only administrator and even tried to manually change the permissions, I do not have access to this log.
I have done the new root2 folder, the problem persists.
I have ran 2 microsoft update fixit tools. the problem persists.
I have ran the update stand alone installer and it crashes immediately with 0xc80003fa error.
I get this error when I try to install .net 4.0 so my graphics card drivers would work, HRESULT 0xc80003fa
Other tutorials that I have followed to no avail:
Unable to install updates in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2
I am exhausted, can someone help me?
Here is a gallery I uploaded with screenshots of problems.

Thanks in advance to whoever can help!

The error appears to be a 'readverify' one - which I assume means that there is corruption somewhere between the download, and the application of the fix.
This could be due to either malware, or hardware.
Please first make sure that your system is clean of malware -
Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM PRO' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.
Delete everything it finds
Then check the hard drive status as follows...
SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.
At the Command prompt, type
and hit the Enter key
Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.
Copy the CBS.log file created (C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) to your desktop (you can't manipulate it directly) and then compress the copy and attach it to your reply
Post a new MGADiag report with details of any error messages encountered.
