Windows 7: New HDD, Re-loaded Win7 Home Prem OS, SP1 updates worked then stopped.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
New HDD, Re-loaded Win7 Home Prem OS, SP1 updates worked then stopped.


OK, so here's what's happening: My HDD died. Then, 3 months later, a NEW HDD died. (Awesome.) So, I got a newer. better HDD, had a repair shop check my PC, ensure that the motherboard wasn't causing the HDD errors (it wasn't). Then they loaded the OS from their own disks. From day 1 Windows updates would NOT work, I couldn't even get SP1. Over a course of 3 weeks, I tried about 8 different fixes. Nothing. So, I started from scratch.

This time I loaded the OS. I have a 2010 Dell XPS1645. I loaded the OS using my original Dell disks. It's Win7 Home Premium. X64 btw.

I followed the driver DL order on Dell's site.

Updates were working great and then they stopped.

So, per your site's instructions I ran the SURT tool. After 3 hours of it hanging, I closed it using Task Manager.

I ran the SFC scan, and, yes, I did receive the "did not find any integrity violations" message.

I have not gotten any Windows Update error codes from Windows. I do get the red X shield on the Windows Update pop-up, but when I click Check for Updates, it seems to try -- but it just hangs.

I've attached a zip which includes:
My SFC/scannow results.
My Windows Logs folder.
AND I included a screen cap of what Window updates worked; you can see which was the first one to fail.

I did try DL'ing one of those updates manually and running it. Honestly, I'm so burned out by all of this (see first paragraph above), I can't recall what happened, but suffice it to say, it didn't work.

Thank you for any help you can offer. I'd like to upgrade to Win10 (it worked AOK on my old drive...right up until failed).
