Windows 7: Growing List of Updates That Fail When Running Windows Update

HOOORAY!! The Repair Install Worked!!

AWESOMENESS!!!!

Thank you NoelDP, Layback Bear & DerekIMO for all your help!

Your input helped me do a Windows Repair Install successfully. After the repair install, not only are my Windows Update issues gone, but a host of other minor problems are also corrected. So far I have not found any negative issues associated with the repair (although I'm sure I will eventually find some). The repair was quite time consuming (a couple hours to back up system images, a couple hours to do the install and a few hours to do the 239 Windows Updates post repair), but well worth the angst!!!

Thanks again for all your help!
