Nothing amiss there. What Anti-Virus are you using? what other AV's have EVER been installed?

You need to run the Norton Removal tool, regardless...

Download the Norton Removal Tool from here https://www-secure.symantec.com/norton-support/jsp/help-solutions.jsp?lg=english&ct=united+states&docid=20080710133834EN&product=home&version=1&pvid=f-home

Close all other programs, then run the tool. When it's complete, reboot the machine whether it asks for it or not.

After the reboot, open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command

NETSH WINSOCK RESET

You'll be advised to reboot - do so.
then post another MGADiag report.

OK, it's done. I tried out of curiosity to start windows update but I got the same error message "service not started". Here is the report:

OK - let's try a few things that have worked for other people....

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands....

NET STOP WUAUSERV
REN C:\Windows\catroot2\edb.log edblog.old
NET START WUAUSERV

Wait 10 minutes - then reboot and wait another 10 minutes
Attempt to install the WAT Update again

If you still get the same error message,

Please run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt

NET STOP CRYPTSVC
REN C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CATROOT2 CATROOT2OLD
NET START CRYPTSVC


once complete, leave the system alone for at least an hour to rebuild the database, then reboot, install again.

that this may delete your Update History - but all updates will remain installed, and can be viewed in the Installed Updates listing.

If that fails,

Open an Elevated Command Prompt
Run the following commands

NET STOP WUAUSERV
REN C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution SDOLD
NET START WUAUSERV

wait 15 minutes, and reboot
then wait 10 minutes, and open Windows Updates, and run a Check for Updates.

Attempt to install only the KB971033 WAT Update

what happens?

THANKS! Steps #1 and #2 did not do anything, but Step #3 made it work:
Code:
NET STOP WUAUSERV
 REN C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution SDOLD
 NET START WUAUSERV
Win update started by itself after reboot! Downloading 130 updates...

Thanks again!!!
