Windows 7: Windows Update Error 80070490

Windows Update Error 80070490

Greetings

I have tried fixing this on my own for a while but I have run out of easy options. My HP Pavilion G6 laptop keeps failing to install some updates and gives the error code 80070490. The laptop was pre-installed with Windows 7 and is out of warranty so I do not have a disk to do a repair install. Some other updates have been successful but the important ones always fail. I tried to attach the CBS zip file but it is too large. I put it in a dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/fi2ffkyovvjzfvv/CBS.zip?dl=0

If I need to do something different please let me know.

You now hold the record for the largest CBS.log file I've ever seen! 4.2GB is one heck of a filesize - and it looks as if it was too big for the makecab compression to handle.

The current one is 'only' 680MB... - and still too big for my editor to handle.
I was able to extract the SFC data, and the only errors present are those to be expected from the MS coding errors in two updates - they don't affect anything else.

You now hold the record for the largest CBS logs I've ever seen!

However, the SFC and CheckSUR scans come back clean - the apparent errors in the SFC are the result of MS coding errors which don't affect anything else.

The background data in the current CBS.log shows errors of a type I would have expected CheckSUR to catch - which probably means that there are significant problems in the registry, and it's likely that you'll need to do a repair install of Windows to be able to fix them.

Thank you for looking at it. I'm not very tech savy so I didn't know that the file was unusually large. I was afraid it was registry issues but the laptop has not had any other significant issues besides the failures to update. I will try to find a copy of Windows 7 to do a repair install if that is the only option.
