Welcome to the forum.

Do a sfc scannow and reboot when prompted to:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Also do what the link below says you:
What is the System Update Readiness Tool?

Post back for further suggestions.

Here is a step by step screenshot.

First type services.msc in the start menu. once the service manager opens serach for "windows Update" and then select it and click properties. Then change its start up to manula first and select OK. Then again select windows update>properties and change its startup type to "automatic (delayed)" or "automatic">click apply and OK. Restart your PC.

Why did you ask to have Windows Up Dates disabled? I can't think of any good reason to do that. It seem like instead of disabling the service it was removed.
If you have complete all the other recommendation previously posted and this
Error 0x80070424 ocurs when you use Windows Update, Microsoft Update, or Windows Firewall
all I can think of is a clean install. A couple of options.
