Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Both CheckSUR and SFC scans are clear of errors.
Please post your C:\Windows\windowsupate.log file - it should give me some clues.
