Windows 7: Win 7 not installing update on reboot

Win 7 not installing update on reboot

A couple days ago, I had power failure. It was off and on so quickly that the computer rebooted. There were some weird things going on, so rather than try to figure out the problems, I installed a Macrium Image created two days prior to this. On reboot windows ran scan disk and literally repaired hundreds of errors. Other than a couple of programs with data bases that required fixing everything appears to be okay except Windows Update.

When I do reboot I accomplish nothing. It's like groundhog day. To me it appears that some updates did not complete correctly.

I ran SURT and Scan now and came back with no errors.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Ken
