Please do not use ANY other tools while we are working on your problem - it will merely confuse the issue.

Please post a new set of CBS and CheckSUR logs

Hello. Just popping back to follow up and mark this solved.
I did another clean install. I tried once more. I left it go overnight. It was a long deal. It would appear to lock on do not power off your pc installing updates.
I had to shut down and when I restarted things appeared to pick up and proceed.

I don't get it??? Windows said that there are 197 updates successful. Maybe it's an odd coincidence. Once I changed settings to install recommended updates with important updates. It made it work???

You are correct. NEVER turn off the computer in the middle of installing Updates.
Why would one even think of doing such a thing? It tells on the computer screen, do not turn off your computer.

Did you get all the needed updates installed?
You might have to check for new Windows 7 Updates 2 or 3 more times that day.

I cringed while shutting it down for sure.
It was frozen for over 6 hours. The hard drive led was solid for 3 of those hours.
For whatever reason. It locked.
I just counted... There's 231 updates successfully installed...
So who knows???
