Hi Truth,
As the windowsUpdate Agent still appears corrupt,
we'll try and re-install it another way
Download a new version from here
http://download.windowsupdate.com/wi...nt-7.6-x64.exe
>>>> TO A USB <<<<
then click on the windows Orb..
X:WindowsUpdateAgent20-x86.exe /wuforce
(where X is your usb drive letter)

Two weeks later and I'm still completely stumped on this. I'm getting perilously close to considering a reinstall to be a viable option.

"This update is not applicable to your computer"
