Windows Update kb2919355 causes component store corruption

Hi.

I've been having problems with my laptop recently. I actually care less when it comes to updates since it's automatic, but I noticed that it refuses to install any drivers (which means I cannot access any USB drives or install programs that requites drivers) or updates, after searching for solutions on the internet, I found out in a website that said kb2919355 causes component store corruption that is irreparable, which is the update that I have already installed. I've tried repairing with DISM but it all fails, probably because the update causes the component store to corrupt when StartComponentCleanup is triggered.

I want this to be fixed but my restore point is already deleted since it's probably too old (which is weird that I'm having this problem since the update has been installed for months). I don't want to reinstall my Windows either, so what now?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Hi JohnBurns.

I'm sorry if I was being unclear in my first post. Actually I already have the KB2931355 and I'm assuming that this update causes the component store to corrupt, which is probably the reason I can't install any updates or drivers. Therefore I wonder if there is any possible workarounds caused from this update, since I don't have any previous restore points.
