Windows 7: Windows 7 Errors and Updates

Windows 7 Errors and Updates

Hello, I seem to be getting a lot of errors in Windows 7. I click on something within Windows like Firewall or to adjust the screen brightness and something pops up indicating that Windows can not find something or other. Or nothing pops up at all and I just just click futilely and nothing happens. Also I have not been getting any Windows Updates recently. I think the two problems might be related. I've run virus checks and nothing shows up. Searched a little about this and it seems either that programs are locked or certain values are missing in the registry. Don't really know what that means. Another site said something about "Windows Can Not Find" errors. Well, thanks for any help you could provide.

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)

Okay, I'm pretty hapless with this stuff but I was able to do a couple of things. I could not run the SURT; for some reason it wouldn't install. And I couldn't find any Update Error Codes; because there aren't any. They are not downloading so no errors are being registered it seems. I did the SFC Scan and the Log Collection thing and have attached those.Hope it helps.
