Has anyone come across this and if so would you be willing to share some guidance or resolution steps

Try:

(1) Scan for malware using Malwarebytes Antimalware.

(2) Use troubleshooting (Control Panel) Windows Update.

(3) Run SFC /scannow from administrative command prompt, fix errors, and restart.

you say " windows update does not work ", may I know what is happening ?

1) Does the search for updates never end ?
2) Do the updates fail to download ?
3) Do the updates fail to install ?

Also open the "WindowsUpdate.log"
click the Start -->in the Search field type windowsupdate.log, open this log file and scroll all the way to the bottom for the most recent entries.
post it for use to help you.

Why did you run a System Restore?

With the answer, we can work on fixing that problem.

You can undo that System Restore to see if that allows Windows Update to run normally.

schuitkds--So the problem last week also was with Windows Update?
Copy these (all at once) into Wordpad
REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL /S
REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL /S
REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL /S
REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL /S

Then click File|Save As and save on Desktop as WU.bat .  Double click on that .bat file.

You have not told us what really happens when you try to run WU.  See pradeep08_81's post.

Have you run the other suggestions?

If no help, scan with your antivirus and antimalware programs.

And if still no help run a Repair Install.

You can do that or just download fixWU which will reregister all windows files.

Repair Install was suggested in http:#a39572000 .  It really is not too bad a procedure, except it will probably take about two hours.  
Just follow the link
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html
which is a great guide.
