Heres where I am now: Ran the diagnostic, got the message "...found corrupt files but was unable to fix all of them. C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log"
After that I tried both the Adobe update and installing AVG, the Adobe update failed again. AVG appeared to install correctly but when attempting to launch it hangs and gives APPCrash error.
So, figuring you would want to see the event log for that I tried to open eventvwr and it crashed!!! Here is the cut and paste from that:
