Windows 7 updates will not install

dell Optiplex 390 win 7 64 bit sp1
Office updates will download and install without problem using windows update

Windows updates will download but error out with error code 80070570 when installing any  of the windows updates.

I have updated all drivers in the system
stopped the update service and deleted everything from the softwaredistribution folder and restarted the service.

Re-registered all of the dll's for the update service and even tried the microsoft fixit but no luck.

I tried installing the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver but can't find one that will install.

The updates will download but error out on the install.

This is a fresh install of win7 64 bit sp1.  The system is not on a domain and the user has administrator access.

None of the solutions worked.  Problem turned out to be a virus.
Person did reinstall of win7 THEN restored their personal files from a backup.. same issue.
I had them wipe the drive again and install win 7 and do updates. Updates worked.  As soon as they restored their personal files the updates stopped working.  Scanned their network backup file location and found a virus.  Remove the virus.. problem resolved.

Sorry about the delay.  Treatments weren't as easy as I thought they would be.
