Windows 7 Pro 64bit Error code 80070308

Helping a friend with her pc, for the last 3weeks she's not been able to successfully complete an update, the downloading of updates work fine, but once it gets to the installation phase, it errors out with Error Code 80070308 (9 updates failed) (her pc has been running fine otherwise, and had windows updates set to automatically check & install.)

I've tried the update fix it tool - http://diagnostics.support.microsoft...no=1&_ext=.exe

Windows update diagnostic - http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...nostic.diagcab

the rediness tool (choosing windows 7 64bit - Fix Windows corruption errors by using the DISM or System Update Readiness tool
sfc scan now
rebooted, but no luck
I've read all info here Windows Update Posting Instructions and i tried multiple times to upload the .CBS Zip, but there seems to be a problem with that as well(see pic)




The pc runs flawlessly, only issues are the failing of updates, and now the upload error shown in screenshot
Security essentials is installed, and quick, and full scans have been ran. i've also installed avg (disabling essentials) and tests are clean there.
Thanks in advance

Good - that's what we expected...

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands


Code:
REG LOAD HKLM\COMPONENTS C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS
REG DELETE HKLM\COMPONENTS /V PendingRequired
 
.
then reboot, and try Windows Update again.

You're probably better downloading the Intel update from either Intel or from your manufacturer's website.

Please post the c:\windows\windowsupdate.log file so I can take a look.

Please open an Elevated Command Prompt and run the following commands.

DIR C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\WuRedir\9482F4B4-E343-43B6-B170-9A65BC822C77

Having said that, I don't think that there's actually anything wrong - it's simply that the new driver you're trying to install is the same one as is currently installed.
A case of 'no action required' - simply hide the update so it doesn't annoy you.

well i ran the elevated cmd, pasted code, successful, none unsuccessful.
ran update, 1 optional (intel dated 6-2014) upon starting update, went to install and same error.) i've never had any problems personally with intel installs. (have 8 pc's at home, and many pc's i help others with probono like yourself )
i chose to hide it as you suggested, being her graphics work fine. (thanks for recommendation)

ive ran a check for updates, and nothing available at this time... so i guess all we can do is wait until next update is released, and see if we get a successful update.

your thoughts? further recommendations?
Thanks so much for your time and help NoelDP
