Windows 7: Windows 7: update reboot loop

Windows 7: update reboot loop

Hi all,

I've been having a problem with Windows updates on my (Win7) pc for some time now.

Downloading the updates usually doesn't pose a problem, but after rebooting it says "error configuring Windows updates reverting changes". That's when the loop starts: my system reboots and tries to configure the updates again, fails and reboots etc. The only way to get out of this is to press F8 and use system recovery. After this happened today I checked Windows update. All of the updates failed except for one(?).

- So far, I downloaded (and ran) the System Update Readiness Tool.

- I ran the SFC scan. It identified a number of problems, but it was unable to fix all of them.

- I can't include Windows update error codes in this post, because they do not appear (anymore). Therefor I check the update history instead.

Please see the log collection attached to this post.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

My System SpecsSystem Spec
