Windows Update failing - fresh install on formatted hard drive

Hey guys, I am new here so also please let me know if I am posting in the wrong section or I need to provide more/different info to my post - thanks!

Here is the situation. I had some pesky malware on my PC, and at the same time, was going to add a new 3TB hard drive to my PC (as a 2nd drive). Since the new 2nd drive was going to have me making a lot of changes to my systems setup anyways, and since I had the malware, I decided I would just reformat and start fresh. My system setup is pretty simple anyways - just Windows, Steam, Origin, and a bunch of games.

But now, after formatting my hard drive, and installing Windows 7 Home x64 from the disc, I am getting these error messages when I attempt to update -

I tried Googling the error code but there is not much information as of now on the web about it. Can anybody help me? I have no idea why it's not working on a clean install...




EDIT:
here are some more screenshots

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Is it normal for the CBS.log to say "Access is denied" when I try to open it?

Here's the zip file for the CBS log -


Scratch that, getting a 404 error when I try to upload the file. Is the forums file uploading currently down?

The failure to access is because you didn't follow the instructions
The inability to upload is almost certainly because the file is too large ( 8MB+)

No sir, the .zip file is approx 500kb in size.

Same thing is happening to me. Exactly as you describe. I have formatted and reinstalled windows several times today and the error keeps happening at the exact same spot (when update installs ~180 updates and framework 4.5). Im really beginning to think something is wrong with updater..
