Post September 2013 Update problem

Asked by split201 on 12/03/2013 at 12:34 PM
I am still having difficulties resulting from (I assume) the September updates problems. 
Everything is working Ok except that I cannot access Windows Updates (I get error code
80070002) and every day I get a couple of instances of 2 simultaneous problem reports. 
One is identified as "Host Process for Windows Services - Windows Update installation
problem" and the other is "Windows Modules Installer - Windows WcpOtherFailure3".  On
each Start Up I also get a "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete" message and
on each shutdown "Configuring Updates".
I have looked for answers and have tried various suggested solutions with no success.
Microsoft Fixit will not load and sfc /scannow fails with a message that a system repair
requires a restart.  I have done disk check from start up with no results.  I have also
loaded KB947821
I have noticed that in \Windows\winsxs\temp I have no PendingDeletes folder and the
PendingRenames folder contains a file dated 27 October 2013 which was probably the date
I downloaded the September and October updates (I was away for the whole of September
and most of October). For various unfortunate reasons I missed the chance to Restore the
system to a date before the problems.
I am using Vista Home Premium with SP2.
Can anyone help?
