Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Just from a google of the error code everything points to using sfc /scannow
I'd do it three times in a row restarting after each run
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker - Windows 7 Help Forums

Also please use these instructions for the logs
Windows Update Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Help Forums

I'd personally use option 3 here too to completely reset the update system
Windows Update - Reset - Windows 7 Help Forums

Might as well post this too,
