Win 7 64Bit no updates, remove programs won't start. Err code 80070490

Hi, this PC with Win 7 64 seems to like getting itself in knots!!
Can't upgrade, 8007490 error code.
Its doing odd things like uninstall programs won't run, nor security centre...

Ran SFC, found errors and can't fix all
Ran SURT and lots of errors.

Attached CBS zipped, can anyone help?

Many Thanks

are you using a third party prog to block W10, Group policy seems to be stopping installation of updates.

Hi Sorry for the massive delay! I've been ill and then away!!
There is no group policy as far as i know. No third party programs
Its a puzzle.. It won't do an in place upgrade either as it says the software on the PC is more modern than the one i'm trying to load, nor will it install office 2010...

Any thoughts

Hi Rossco,
try the following first, both modes please.
then reboot try 1 update.

If that fails then

Check the setupapi_dev.log, for this access denied error:

Published driver package. Time = 125 ms
sto: {Publish Driver Package: exit(0x00000000)} <Time>
sto: {Publish Driver Package: <File Path> usbstor.inf} <Time>

1. Start Windows Explorer, and then locate the %SystemRoot%\Inf folder

2. Right-click the Usbstor.inffile, and then click Properties

3. Click the Security tab

4. Under the Group or user names list, give full permission to SYSTEM and Administrators

5. Click Ok

Repeat step 1 - 5 for Usbstor.pnf file.

6. Reboot the computer once and then try installing Sp1
