I did manage to manually install each update from microsofts website and the numbers started going down in the Windows Update window when I did a restart. The problem is that Windows Update won't automatically install it and fails when I prompt it to.

What happens when you attempt to scan for updates in WU?
What happens when you attempt to install the updates via WU?

I typed in Windows Update in Start and when the the window pops up to download and install updates for my computer, I see a number of important and optional updates. When I click install updates, they all fail with the 800704B2 error. However manually going into each update from the website used a Windows Standalone Installer which installed each update.

"MS Fix it" won't work either as Windows Installer Service cannot be accessed as it may not be correctly installed.

Please run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt

NET START WUAUSERV
NET START WUAUCLT
NET START BITS
NET START TRUSTEDINSTALLER
.
You should get either 'starting....started' messages, or 'already started' messages for each.

If you get 'could not start' - then post back with the exact error message and the service name that failed (it'll probably be TrustedInstaller)

SO - we've found the problem service, at least - now to work out why it's not starting.
I see you're apparently using the Built-in Administrator account - please tell us why?
Do you have an ordinary user account with Administrator privileges?
