Just bear in mind that W10 is not and will not run some of the programs you are now running under W7.
That isn't necessarily so. I think what Daniel meant to say is that Windows 10 might not run some of the programs.
Under the circumstances I agree with Daniel, I would definitely consider upgrading to Windows 10.
HOWEVER, before you go ahead, I think it would be a very wise idea to check the hard drive for errors first. Seeing how this is a fresh Windows 7 installation, it may well be that the hard drive is causing the problems.

Maybe give this a try first?

I can state I had same problem. It started with a PC with Win 7 running 32 OS system. It was dead on the bench so a complete re-install was needed. All
was well you know the time, anti-virus, broadband connect and every thing. When it came to get updates it ran for days on end. After a search and long study of about at 12+ others I still had this error. To make a long story short do the following. Go to Windows Update Catalog. Download kb-3135445 Shut down windows update and go to services thru the command prompt and stop the windows update system. Install kb-3135445 as a stand alone file. run it. Turn on all the things you turned off. If you did a re-install you will get 180 to220 update. Its on Utube as a video.

[b]Hello Myles, I was reading your post and believe it or not I went through the exact same thing you are going through right now. I did everything up to and including Frogman's response above. Unfortunately it did not help, it did not fix it and nothing changed. I didn't want to do a clean install and then I finally got it!
It was a combination of two things, first have you heard of or tried SubinACL? If not here is a brief explanation: it's a Windows program that allows you to set permissions on files and folders.
Doesn't sound like much but believe it or not huge difference! I will give the quick steps below and there were a couple other issues I was having I will include as well just in case.
This link is to the website where I first learned about subinacl and used it, it's very informative.
This link is to the subinacl download.
At this point I can save you some time if you want to keep it simple. If so follow these steps:
1 After you download subinacl move it to C:\
2 Go to Windows Updates and make sure it's set to Never Check For Updates
3 Restart the computer.
4 If you used the first link above he lists the file you are going to create.
5 First open Notepad, then from that first link you only need to copy lines 33-81 and paste them into that notepad.
6 Save As and name it reset.cmd
7 It will save it as reset.cmd.txt and you just rename it and remove the .txt
8 Now click on Start and in the box type cmd and wait until it shows at the top.
9 Right click on it and click Run as Administrator
10 Type in cd c:\ and press enter (there is a space after cd)
11 All you have to type now is reset.cmd and let it run.
Word of caution, I was running Windows 7 Home Premium and every file I was downloading from online I had to right click and Unblock it or it wouldn't install properly. Not sure if you will have that issue but figured I would point it out.
Now after that runs to completion, I recommend restarting your computer one more time. Unfortunately what happens next is a bit nerve wracking but I endured three days I will try and save you that.
After the reboot go back to Windows Updates and set it to Automatically Download and Install and set the time it will do it. Don't do the optional updates just the important ones. At that point you have to wait, the next day I had like 166 installed and there were more coming. I don't know if this will help and I apologize for it being so long. If you all think this is crazy talk I understand.
