I've only just now noticed a link to the Microsoft Community Forums that Icit2lol posted in my thread. I followed everything else she posted, but totally missed that link.
I believe NoelD is on the same track from what she asked me to post this morning from my Command Prompt.

Please open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command to tidy up.

close the window, and reboot.

Ok this is what I get

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>REG DELETE HKLM\COMPONENTS /v pendingrequiredRENAME
Delete the registry value pendingrequiredRENAME (Yes/No)? Yes
ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.

C:\Windows\system32>

It's there when I run the first command you gave me.

Ooops - a typo on my part

the command should have been...

REG DELETE HKLM\COMPONENTS /v pendingrequiredRENAMED

Sorry about that!
