Windows 7: Updates failed, Error Code:8000FFFF

07 Jan 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Updates failed, Error Code:8000FFFF

So I casually installed some updates with Windows Update. Several updates failed, I restarted computer as prompted.
Next thing I know I get bombarded with 30 or more pop-ups telling me things like; "The cordinal 282 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll" among other similar messages.

Most programs wont open anymore, chrome starts up but it wont connect anywhere.
To make it extra odd; the only reason I can type this message here is because Firefox still works perfect.

Not sure what to do, I've tried the following.
1. Scf /scannow - Found some corrupt DLL files, restarted and problem persists.

2. Manually uninstall all the updates that I installed today, I managed to delete all except two of them...

3. Tried uninstalling those updates using CMD with wusa command, no success. All I get is this error message; "Installer encountered an error: 0x8007371c".

4. I should mention that I do not have System Restore or Backup activated...

The "cordinal 282" message shows up like shown in the attachment but several times with different programs.

EDIT: Added CBS.log!!

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report.

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.
