Windows 7: Cannot get updates to install

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Cannot get updates to install

Ok so I had this issue where I couldn't get windows update to even download updates. So I fixed that with a couple fix programs that I found linked on here.

Then it downloaded them but proceeded to fail on the restart. Would say configuring addons. Then failed configuring addons, reverting. I then installed them one by one and got all but two to work. I have messed with this for 2 hours now and I even manually downloaded the two and they still do the exact same thing.

They are:

Error code from WindowsUpdate.log is 80070005

Any ideas?
