Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Win Update service not running on new installation

I'm installing Win7 Pro 64bit on a new (empty) hard drive in my HP laptop. Windows Update won't run; the error message is "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running. You may need to restart your comptuer." (This is immediately after a restart.) The Software Update Readiness Tool also will not run, giving me error 0xc8000247. I've attached the zipped CBS logs. Services.msc says the Windows Update service is running (see attached screenshot). Thanks for any help you can give me.
