I did the above and tried to update but got the same results ive been getting. The Fixit tool gave me a new error code 0x80070003.

The updates showing up in history are for Security Essentials. Its the only thing that has shown up in windows update history since last year.

=========================

bullseye_zpse9eaf36e.gif To view results log:
  • Open the Start Menu, and type eventvwr.msc in the search box and press enter.
  • If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes (Windows 7) or Continue (Vista).

Hi NoNo,

bullseye_zpse9eaf36e.gif System File Checker (SFC)

  • Click on the Start button and in the Search programs and files box type the following:
    • command

  • Select Run as administrator.
  • Click Yes on the User Account Control window that appears.
  • Important: If you see a User Account Control window but also a message that says To continue, type an administrator password, and then click Yes, then your user account must be a standard account, not an administrator account.

  • Note: You will not see this window at all if your User Account Control settings are turned all the way down. See How To Disable User Account Control in Windows 7 for more information.
  • An elevated Command Prompt window will appear.
    • Type: sfc /scannow (There's a space between sfc and /scannow.) , then hit Enter
  • Let the check run to completion. DO NOT reboot the PC or close the cmd window.
  • Copy & Paste the following command at the Command Prompt and press Enter:

    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt
  • This will place a file on your desktop called sfcdetails.txt which contains the results of the scan.
  • Copy and Paste the contents of the file into your next post.
  • After the scan runs type exit to close the command prompt window

Hi - I ran SFC and received a message saying "There is a system repair pending which requires a rooboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again". So I restarted and ran sfc again and I received the same message. 

By the way, I'm running Vista.

Hi- Ok so I ran the program. Its a little diff than the example above, but I only ran the options you requested. I ran Check Disk and there were no issues. When I ran the System File Checker, I received the same message as before, "There is a system repair pending which requires a roboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again". 

I rebooted, ran again and received the same message, So I tried it in Safe Mode and also received the same message.  

I did not do the Repair option yet. I thought I would wait and ask you if I should do it without running SFC.
