KB2310138 spinning in circles WONT UPDATE

I post a lot don't I. this update won't stick. I have installed three updates like thirty times and windows can't fix it, the update fixer can't fix it I can't seem to,

I dunno I think that power shut offs have damaged windows... is there a way to back up the system so that after you clean install you get everything back? I mean I don't got nothing important I just hate to go through all that :P lol im lazy AHHH
plus im not sure how to set windows 7 up right ... I figuer if I do that I might mess up worse.. dunno not big deal but the update bug might be a problem later on if I can't get more updates... right?

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

Having just read through most of your 4 pages of history {seeking help} I noted you have had quite a few problems with your computer thus far.

A Clean Install, might indeed get you up & running far quicker than tackling all of your glitches individually.
Just make sure you DO NOT repeat the same things that created the 'mess' you are now in.
Good luck!
