Windows 7: The Infamous IE11 Update Error 9C47 (Win7 SP1 64-bit)

The Infamous IE11 Update Error 9C47 (Win7 SP1 64-bit)

Well the thread title says it all. I've done quite a bit of scouring the web to try and find a solution as this seems to be a common problem that others have experienced. But I've somewhat hit a dead end and would appreciate any help/suggestions for alternative remedies.

Here's what I've tried so far:

All the steps/sequences suggested here.

Including the MS Community thread also referenced in the link above.

Post #1 in this thread describes my issue almost exactly. Most of the suggestions there are things already tried in the subsequent links above.

I read another interesting proposed fix in this thread (post #4) but am reluctant to try it for fear of mucking anything else up.

What I know at this point:

At first, IE8 was only installed and W-Update would find IE9 and IE11 but they would both fail on install. Through many of the proposed fixes above, I was able to get IE9 installed (don't ask me how). I then ran the standalone IE10 installer and that went fine . So I tried W-Update for IE11 but that failed out on error 9C47 again. What's also strange is that IE10 now shows up as an "optional" update. Stranger yet is that Installed Updates in control panel doesn't show any IE being installed at all. And Turn Windows Components On/Off is just flat out blank. I've attached a couple log files (CBS and IE11_main) that I thought might be useful in troubleshooting this issue. The IE11 log indicates that KB2729094 is not downloaded or not present. But I've verified that it in fact is. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling that file a few times now and that seems to do nothing. The standalone IE11 installer halts with a message indicating "IE11 install did not complete" or something to that effect.

Again, any help/tips/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if I need to provide any additional info. Thanks in advance!

I'm guessing those who have read this are just as stumped as I am then?

Thanks for the response. I didn't include my SURT results because for some reason it won't run. It errors out and indicates "the data is invalid". SFC doesn't find any issues and I didn't suspect it would because this is a clean Win7-64bit install. Error codes and Windows logs are referenced in my 1st post. Thanks again.

Please post the CBS.log with the SFC attempt in it anyhow - there may be background errors that will give us a clue.
CheckSUR failing is a bad sign - it takes some fairly severe problems before that happens (usually a broken TrustedInstaller service or similar). What error code does it give when it fails?
