Windows 7: BSOD after recent Windows Updates, error 0x0000006b

BSOD after recent Windows Updates, error 0x0000006b

I am currently facing a really annoying problem with a bsod occurring when booting the system.
This bsod comes after I installed the following bunch updates provided by Windows Update:

Office 2010:
(KB982726) 32-Bit-Edition
(KB2687501) 32-Bit-Edition
(KB2687510) 32-Bit-Edition
(KB2760410) 32-Bit-Edition
(KB2598242) 32-Bit-Edition

Windows 7

After installations finishes I do the recommended reboot, systems boots fine. If I would again do another reboot, also everything fine.
Now the system runs for some hours then I do shutdown for the next day. Then on the next day the bsod comes up. I can reproduce this problem many times.

What I tried:
Check drivers up2date
Did chkdsk c: /F /R
Check cabling of drives
Changed Sata Cables
Checked BIOS Updates
Did Virus scan wih several Scanners and Anti Malware products, no results found
Even removed my Norton AV
Deleted bootcache file, restored it back, no fix
Did SFC/SCANNOW which tells me that there is a file damaged but can't be repaired. If i do SFC/SCANNOW again in Windows RE it tells me that there is an outstanding reapir. Tried this several times. Same results always from SFC.
I also attached the CBS.log .

Workaround for me is using startup repair and skipping the windows updates.

But somehow I would like to find a solution, I do not really like reinstalling everytime such windows trouble comes up.
As I can see this topic is not new but checking the recent posts I did not find a fix for me. Did all that standard bsod troubleshooting w/o results.
Is this maybe Microsoft way to tell there customers to move to Windows 8

Maybe you guys found a solution to fix it?

All the dumps are showing stop 6B.

Usual causes: Hard drive, Cables, Missing boot files, Disabled driver

Do some Disc checks.
  1. Update your SSD's Firmware (skip it, if it is not a SSD)
  2. Re-seat the sata and power.
  3. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  4. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
After re-seating the cables, if the problems persist, you may try changing cables. A bad cable also may cause it.

For ensure that it is not a boot issue, run Startup Repair for three separate times, with restarts after every single run.
Startup Repair: Run three separate times.

If all failed, do a System Restore to a point earlier than that update.
