Windows 7: Update failures on W7 SP1 64bit Computer

Update failures on W7 SP1 64bit Computer

I am maintaining a remote computer, W7 64 bit, that is having trouible with updates. I have attached two jpg’s of 1) the installation log and 2) the setup that has been set since installation. Today I get word from the owner that they keep getting a msg that updates failed. So, this afternoon I attempted to install the updates. Here’s the chronological attempts I made:
1. Went to Control Panel.... Windows Update
2. There were 17 Updates to install.
3. Downloaded and successfully installed 13 updates.
4. Rebooted
5. Went to Control Panel.... Windows Update.
6. 3 optional updates
7. Downloaded and successfully installed 3 updates.
8. Rebooted
9. Went to Control Panel.... Windows Update
10. All but the MSE update had failed (see log)
Repeated the above with same results. Something is wrong.

I then went to the W7 forum for advice and found the forum for update problems. Jotted down the requests you made for starting a new thread. Ran only three updates, 2 were successful and one failed with an error code of 80070005.
Ran scf /scannow and everything checked out, downloaded and installed SURT and the CBS folder is provided. Tomorrow morning I will attempt to install update again to see if SURT corrected anything.
Could not upload the files request. Will send them with the next reply.
