You said never be afraid... Any luck at all? Should I perhaps just try repair install once more? Or take it out behind the barn and put it out of it's misery?

I did have a long look - and couldn't find anything wrong there
Meant to go back to it (and you).

Go for the repair install again - after uninstalling your AV and running any cleanup tool it may have.
Immediately afterwards - and before running Windows Updates - run an SFC /SCANNOW, and see what it has to say - post the results, and I'll take a look while you get to the updates.

As far as Updates are concerned, please install in this order

1) Security Updates for Windows
2) Security Updates for IE8 (but not IE9/10/11 yet!)
3) Other updates for Windows
4) .NET 3.5 updates
5) IE9
6) .NET 4.5
7) IE10
8) IE11

Each time followed by a reboot and a new Check for Updates - you can install anything higher up the list that either didn't install earlier, or has suddenly appeared.
You will get a few failures - nothing to worry about as a rule - just note them and carry on unless one keeps repeating.

Woot! I think this worked! The repair install actually went through this time, instead of crashing out, and sfc /scannow reported no integrity violations. Now if the updates (including sp1) will install....fingers crossed!

Absolute success. This computer was a goner without the help of you and Tom, Noel. Thank you very much. Without the repairs you did, the repair install would not have been able to run, and without that, I would have had to wipe it clean and reinstall from scratch. Since the owner didn't have most of her applications to re-install, it would have been a disaster for her. For the record, all updates installed perfectly, including sp1, and all applications seem to be intact and running properly. Once again, I cannot thank you both enough.

Great!
Nice to have got it fully fixed - even if it took a lot longer than any of us would have liked.

Good Luck!

Yes, I would have never spent as much time as this on repair if the reinstall would not have been so very costly in terms of application replacement. Keep your product keys and cds in a safe place, people! Learn this lesson! And always Backup Backup Backup! Thanks again Noel. This forum is definitely going into my permanent bookmarks as a great resource.
