Windows 7: Windows Check for updates keeps running-all installation/updates fail

I am doing something wrong here... do I need to reboot the computer again and run only sfc scan?

C:\windows\system32>sfc /scannow /OFFBOOTDIR=C:\ /OFFWINDIR=C:\Windows

The arguments passed to sfc are invalid. The offline windows directory
specified points to the online system.

Sorry - from normal Windows, the command is simply

SFC /SCANNOW

...again/still

One common cause for this error is that some services have been disabled.
Please run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt, and post the results.

NET START EVENTLOG
NET START EVENTSYSTEM
NET START VSS
NET START TRUSTEDINSTALLER
NET START WINMGMT

(most should be already started)

So the problem is with the TrustedInstaller service.

Let's see what we can find out then.....

Please open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands.

SC QC TRUSTEDINSTALLER
DIR C:\Windows\Trustedinstaller.* /S
ICACLS C:\Windows\TrustedInstaller.* /T

post the results in a Code box - they could be lengthy.

(Thanks, Golden!)

Ah - the RtBackup folder again!
I really have no idea why that keeps popping up in searches - one day I will find out. It *may* be related to your problem but I think not.
Just in case, please run the following commands and post the results.

DIR C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\WMI\RtBackup /S
