Windows 7: Windows 7 Windows Update service not working

The installation is of an MSDN Product Key...

The Key in use is an MSDN Key from a not-for-resale MSDN account.
Unless you are an MSDN subscriber, you are not entitled to use the Key – and whoever sold it to you was not entitled to do so.
You need to claim an immediate refund from the vendor - do NOT accept the offer of a new key (all they are trying to do is to get past the 45-day claims window or avoid you sending the evidence of their crimes to the authorities)

The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.

Unfortunately I will not qualify for a complimentary copy of Windows as I no longer have contact details for the original point of purchase, any documentation for the computer, or my original reciept... however I did submit the report still

upon going through my email, I managed to find the contact details for the seller and the original quote he sent me but I am unable to update my counterfeit report =\

I have contacted the company for a copy of the original reciept if they still have it on file
