Windows updates not taking, reverting, constantly retrying!!!
My Windows 7 (x64) computer is stuck trying to install updates. Each time I shut down my computer the updates are automatically run, and I see the following...
At this point the computer shuts down. I then turn the computer back on and see the following...
At this stage the computer reboots and then I see the following...
I see the regular logon prompt...
I can then logon as normal, use the computer as normal, but once I shut down the process described above repeats. I have seen it repeat on at least four occasions.
Finally once I log back on I am not prompted with any options, the updates automatically re-apply, and if I look under "Windows Updates" in "Control Panel" I see the following -
If anybody knows how to stop this from happening / fix this please let me know.

Thanks NoelDP, extra information as requested...
Thanks for the heads up on the correct Windows Update post method. I have followed the instructions on the link that you kindly provided.
1). I installed the Windows 7 x64 System Readiness Tool
2). I ran sfc /scannow
3). Windows update error codes are not presented. Instead the computer just alerts that updates need to be installed, attempts to install them, rolls them back, and then reboots (as explained in my original post).
4). Please see the DropBox link below for the log zip file -
I hope that this information helps with finding a solution.

The CheckSUR log and SFC log are both clear - there are some minor background errors in the CBS.log file, which I think can be ignored.
The latest CBSPersist file has the following error....

I suspect that the problem may be susceptible to the following solution....
please start an Elevated Command Prompt and copy and paste in the following:
fsutil resource setautoreset true %systemdrive%\
attrib -r -s -h %SystemRoot%\System32\Config\TxR\*
attrib -r -s -h %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine\*
and press enter after the final line if necessary.
If you are asked if you are sure, type Y and press enter.
You may get some errors on some of these lines. Please just ignore them (they are normal).
Then reboot, and do a manual Check For Updates - attempt installation of only the oldest found update, and post the new results.
Here are some instructions to make life easier
1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.
2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.
3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.
