Windows 7 32 bit.
Windows Update is disabled and will not turn back on

I am using a Windows 7 32 bit computer. My windows update has been disabled and when I try to check for updates I get the 'Windows update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer.' report. Restarting the computer does not work. I think that I am missing some important updates, so please help!

Windows update does not appear in the Services menu.

I read that windows update is linked to windows defender, which I have found is also not running and will not turn back on. When I attempt to turn it on I get error code: 0x80070424, and it also does not appear in the Services menu.

I am using McAfee which I think could be interfering with Defender, I also ran a Security Check that I found through a previous thread, these were the results:
