    Hi Truth,
    Did you try the start-up repair
    Startup Repair
    (copy the OS disks to a usb?)
    I didn't before, but I have now. It found and fixed a configuration error of some sort.

    Ran it, I assume it did things, although a lot of "service is not running" and "file not found" flashed by,

    I feel I should elaborate that the reregister tool did not fix my problem, I think my last post kinda mistakenly implied otherwise.

    Hi Truth,
    As the windowsUpdate Agent still appears corrupt,
    we'll try and re-install it another way
    Download a new version from here
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/wi...nt-7.6-x64.exe
    >>>> TO A USB <<<<
    then click on the windows Orb..
    X:WindowsUpdateAgent20-x86.exe /wuforce
    (where X is your usb drive letter)

    Two weeks later and I'm still completely stumped on this. I'm getting perilously close to considering a reinstall to be a viable option.

    A month later, and my search has brought me no closer to figuring this out.

    No, I can honestly say I have not done that. Because I can't install any updates.

    Unfortunately, I can only get as far as step 3 in your instructions. I don't have KB3020369 installed, and I can't install it.

    "This update is not applicable to your computer"

    I'm beginning to see a major flaw in the fact that almost everything to fix Windows Update requires that WU be working properly.
