Windows 7: Can not update

The clean install has been done, and Windows had updated successfully.

Thank you for all your help, I really appreciate it. :)

Do you have any idea what could have caused my issues?

Hi Frondar,

Thanks for letting us know how it went, I'm glad you managed to get everything sorted.

As for the cause, it's really hard to say, but I would hazard a guess at corruption in a core Windows Update file, or a dodgy hard disk. There isn't many signs of the latter being the cause here, but it has to be something fairly substantial for it to cause 20,000+ problems. It might be worth trying a chkdsk, just to make sure everything is in order:

I was thinking that it actually takes very little to create 20,000 errors - a root error in a registry hive, possibly from a forced shutdown at the wrong time, would be enough.
Things get out-of-step, and blam - everything is suddenly wrong.

Sorry, poor English on my part. By substantial, I meant one big problem could mess up a lot, like you said :)
