Windows 7: Win 7 Update gives error code 8007000E

Win 7 Update gives error code 8007000E

I sent this to the Windows Update forum´and it was suggested to me that I should also try this forum. So, here is the problem:-

I used the Tutorial Reset_Full batch file and it executed OK. But after Restart, I still got the "unknown error" message when running Windows Update. See screenshot.
I have looked at the posts that mention that error code, but none of them seems to be relevant. Update always used to work, but this is what I have been doing before it has begun to fail:

I had XP on a drive that was getting very cranky! (XP, not the drive!) I used a full Win 7 DVD install disc to upgrade XP to Win 7 and after all the usual steps, Update found about 169 updates needed. I clicked to go ahead and after it finished and restarted I got a message that 168 were not needed.

I went to IE to search for an explanation and IE8 told me that it was out of date and I needed IE11. I then found the install file for IE11, installed it and restarted. When trying Update again I got a similar failure/error message and it hasn't worked since

I have tried: sfc scan, memory diagnostics, Start up repair from the repair menu on the DVD and all the steps on the tutorial for WU. Nothing works, although much of the Win 7 installation does work.

I have now had a look at what might be relevant in this forum, but nothing looks very relevant.

What next?
