Windows Updates are failing

Hi all, my Windows 7 (64 bit) updates are failing on me recently. All of them are installing correct except the "Security Update for Windows 7....) updates and also the "Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2952664)". Here is the details associated with the second failures. Any help would be appreciated.  

Installation date: ‎11/‎07/‎2014 10:23 AM

Here is the workaround from Microsoft:

Error code 0x80070005 is also known as "ACCESS DENIED." It usually occurs when you lack file or registry permissions that are required to install the update. (Because file or registry permissions may be changed by malware, we recommend that you scan for malware after you repair the permissions.)

To resolve the issue, make sure that you are logged on as an administrator, and then install the updates again. If the problem continues, use the SubInACL tool to repair file and registry permissions. To do this, follow these steps:

    Download the SubInACL tool and install it in the %windir%\system32 folder. The %windir% placeholder represents the Windows operating system folder. For example, C:\Windows.
    Start Notepad, and then copy and paste the following commands:

    @echo off




    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f  /grant=system=f

    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f  /grant=system=f

    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f  /grant=system=f

    subinacl /subdirectories %windir% /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f




    @Echo =========================

    @Echo Finished.

    @Echo =========================

    @pause

    Save the file as Reset.cmd.
    Right-click the Reset.cmd file in File Explorer (in Windows 8.1 and Windows 8) or Windows Explorer (in Windows 7 and Windows Vista), and then click Run as administrator. In Windows XP, double-click the file in Windows Explorer.
    Wait until the execution finishes, and then try to install the update again.
