windows can't update 80070005

i just bought a new SSD and installed windows 7 ultimate sp1 on it. as with every new installations there a lot of update that it asks you to do. so after downloading and installing a lot i need to restart so i did that but now when i click check for updates it says failed error 80070005. i have spent like the last 6 hours trying to fix it and yes i have googled it and been though all for the SubInACL and the cmd stuff but nothing has worked. i can't be a problem with something i've installed as it's not even a day old and all that's installed is the very basic stuff like display, sound, internet, etc, i don't even have chome installed yet that's how basic it is.

so if anyone can please help me it will be much appreciated
