Help with win7 updates not configuring

Here is new thread with cab and screenshots. It should be noted that the update seemed to work after applying suggestions from NoelDP.
original post;
Asus All in One ET2410IUT Windows 7 64bit home premium. 9 security updates error message, "failed configuring windows updates - reverting changes" after installing and reboot. Tried several times with same result. Installed the updates one at a time and 8 of them worked. The "Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2962872)" is causing this problem. On shut down and reboot the computer goes threw this same loop each time.
ps. also ran the win repair tool.

Thank you for your help, joe jitzu

We need the other data requested in Windows Update Posting Instructions as well - although I doubt that it will show too much in this instance

However, the SFC scan you ran was in the uploaded file - and showed that it had found and fixed one problem.

Here's the most likely solution for your problem...
1. Download and install SubInACL from the Microsoft Download Center Download SubInACL (SubInACL.exe) from Official Microsoft Download Center
2. Open Notepad (Click Start, type Notepad, and then press Enter)
3. Copy and paste the following text into Notepad

Set OSBIT=32
IF exist "%ProgramFiles(x86)%" set OSBIT=64
set RUNNINGDIR=%ProgramFiles%
IF %OSBIT% == 64 set RUNNINGDIR=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
subinacl /subkeyreg "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing" /grant="nt service\trustedinstaller"=f
4. Close Notepad, and make sure you save it. When you save the text, make sure that you set
Save as Type to “All Files (*.*)”. Very important! The file name needs end with .CMD. For example: fix.cmd. Lastly, when you save the file, make sure you save it at a location where it will be easy for you to find.
5. Right click on the file that you just saved in step #4, and select “Run as Adminstrator”
