Just click on the link for it in my Reply #5 and select Run on the download.

It needs to be run immediately after a sfc /scannow as the CBS log can be volatile.

I don't know how it does it but there's a brief explanation in the majorgeeks.com link.

EDIT - I'm shooting off for a few hours now but will be back later,

These following cmds are really for Windows Update problems but could be related.

Open a Command Prompt (Admin) then copy & paste the cmds en bloc where they will auto run except perhaps for the last one where you will need to press enter.

net stop wuauserv

net stop cryptSvc

net stop bits

net stop msiserver

ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old

net start wuauserv

net start cryptSvc

net start bits

net start msiserver

Then enter shutdown /r /t 00 to effect an immediate reboot and then see how things go.

The SoftwareDistribution cmd will remove your update history but won't affect installed updates.

Reversing the cmds will reinstate the previous versions of Catroot2 and Software Distribution folders.

BTW - Did you try the fresh app install ?

All of what I've posted will get you access to the CBS log.

SFCFix.exe can repair some items that sfc /scannow is unable to but not all.

Not sure about what you have removed and how.

There are two ways you can see a condensed version of the CBS log.

Run a cmd prompt as an admin then copy & paste this cmd to the prompt and press enter.

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log > %userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

This will put an icon onto the desktop which when double clicked will open into Notepad with what it could and couldn't repair.

The other is to download an run SFCFix.exe straight after another sfc /scannow which will produce its own report.

To view the full CBS log, right click on it and select Send to/Documents where you will be able to open it in there.

You can .zip either and attach them to your post.

I came across this article on another forum - https://care.king.com/en/candy-crush-jelly-saga/cant-get-your-games-to-load-on-windows-10-check-this-out

While it deals with not being able to load apps - it has steps for setting the updates to automatic which may help.

If that doesn't work or it would be too much work transferring over to that account, create a system image onto external media then uninstall one of the apps to see if it can be installed afresh.

7
Can you create another admin account to see if that works ?

8
Which apps are you trying to update ?

This looks like what has happened to your machine, although I don't know how you are supposed to install the new update when they get it sorted if the machine won't boot up normally.

Update problems are free with MS support but in this case the best they are likely to come up with would be a clean install.

You could remove Avira while in the registry after first backing it up by exporting it to see if that will help.

What I meant was what machine/device are you using to post with ?

How/when did you access Event Viewer ?

Were you able to select Safe Mode with or without Command Prompt ?

To exit that if you can, enter shutdown /r /t 00 which will effect an immediate reboot.

I'm not sure if this article will help with the user profile service, but if that has become corrupt, it's worth a try - if you are unable to access Safe Mode with or without Command Prompt to uninstall Avira.

You can access the registry from the RE cmd prompt by entering regedit

BTW - what are you using to post with ?

Have you tried to uninstall Avira by the method in that article ?

How were you trying to access services and on another note, what logs were you referring to that snagged those two updates ?
