Windows 7: Reliability Index Not Reliable

Reliability Index Not Reliable

I have been hacking at this for awhile and I am out of ideas.

Win 7 Reliability Index not updating.
Checked RacTask -- It is enabled and will run
Checked services -- appears to me the appropriate ones are set to auto. But not sure exactly which ones are critical.
In Rac directory deleted old databases. Ran Rac test and it wrote new ones back. Still no update to index graph.
Looked in event viewer logs. Windows logs are showing entries that are current (dated). But in the Applications and service logs there are no entries.
If I call up reliability history via Action center it is empty. Some times It will have the message "If you have just installed Windows check back later". When I close the window and reopen it the message is gone.
SFC /Scannow shows no integrity violations. I could do a repair install but I don't want to upset the config I have. It's not worth it.
I know it takes 24hrs or more to level out from a clean start. I have gave it plenty of time over the last week.

It's not exactly reliable as an indictator of anything other than umm well nothing. The only thing I can think of to fix it is a repair install, but since you don't want to do that, you'll just have to rely on benchmarks and such.
