The CBS log is clear
You appear to have used DISM, on 31/12 - can I ask what for?
There are actually three SFC logs in the file - all are apparently clear.


Please download and save the CheckSUR tool from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821
(you'll need to look in the details for Method 2)

Run it - The tool can take anywhere from 5 mins to a couple of hours to run (or 'Install') depending on how much it has to do, and may exit silently - it may appear to freeze for most of that time, but be patient.
The result is logged in the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log file - and an archive …\checksur.persist.log file

Then zip the CheckSUR.log and attach it to your reply..

You appear to have re-started the tool? - the first run was clear anyhow.

Let's check some of the peripheral services that the SPPSVC uses....

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands - post the results.

NET START EVENTLOG
NET START EVENTSYSTEM
NET START VSS
NET START WUAUSERV
NET START BFE
NET START BITS

That's most of the Registry's direct references to the SPPSVC and its executable :)

Those all look perfectly normal to me.
I suspect that it may be a permissions thing in the registry - and it's beyond my current skills/knowledge to fix that.
I suspect that the only cure is going to be either a repair install or a clean install.
