Windows Update restart loop

Greetings,

I have a problem with Windows Update. The system(windows update)
returns that must be rebooted to install important updates-
of course after a restart situation is the same

A step that i taken :

FIX tool WU
Stop update service -> change the name of the directory -> restart services
Stop update service -> delete the data in catalogs Download and Data ( c: \ windows \ Software Distribution -> restart services
Windows Update Diagnostic Tool - > at the end I get an error : 80070003
Any update fixes from Microsoft
CHKDSK repair and scannow

I am attaching log ( c: \ windows \ logs and c : \ windows \ Software Distribution

Any thoughts?

Open an Elevated Command Prompt.

At the prompt, run the following commands.

DEL C:\Windows\System32\config\TxR\*.* /q
DEL C:\Windows\System32\config\TxR\*.* /ah /q
fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\


then wait 10 minutes, and reboot - then try Windows Update

Maybe, maybe not - try running the commands while in Safe Mode, and see if that helps.

OK - try this set of instructions instead...

fsutil resource setautoreset true %systemdrive%\

attrib -r -s -h %SystemRoot%\System32\Config\TxR\*
del %SystemRoot%\System32\Config\TxR\*

attrib -r -s -h %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine\*
del %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine\*.tm*
del %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine\*.blf
del %SystemRoot%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine\*.regtrans-ms

- that repeats at every boot.

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands


Code:
REG LOAD HKLM\COMPONENTS C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS
REG DELETE HKLM\COMPONENTS /V PendingRequired
*
.
then reboot, and try Windows Update again.
