Windows Update Service not installed error: 0x80070424

PC 64bit
Windows 7 home premium
Windows Update does not work
What I did for diagnose and solving the problem:

1. Tried installing System Update Readiness Tool (SURT)
received
"Installer encountered an error: 0x80070424 The Specified service does not exist as an installed service"

2. SFC Scan
Command Prompt
Run as Administrator
sfc /scannow

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations

3. Windows Update
Via Start/Configuration: Windows Update

Error: Windows update cannot check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer. (no error code)
Restarting pc does not help.

4. CBS.zip
The CBS log created by sfc /scannow is attached


5. Checking services:
Run: Services.msc
The windows update service is not in the list

Any tip / advice appreciated.
Jeff

I've uploaded a file - ACFix.zip - to my SkyDrive at https://skydrive.live.com/#cid=936736BB8FCEB92F&id=936736BB8FCEB92F%21972
Please download and save it to your desktop.
Right-click on the saved file and select Extract all...
Save it to the default location
This should create a file ACFix.reg

right-click on the file, and select Merge
Accept the warnings, - you should then get a 'Success' message.
Close all windows, and reboot.

Run another Farbar scan and post the results.
then test the Action Center works as expected
