Computer cannot find any updates.

I hope someone can help me. I have a fresh install of Windows 7 Basic 64 bit. Activacted and ready to go. No antivirus yet because I do not want to block updates. When I go to Windows update and check for updates the computer will start searching. It will never find anything and it will never stop searching. I have reinstalled the windows 3 times. All ways the same. I hope someone can help me.

Best software to find driver updates?
Is there any software that can check automatically for driver updates? It'll have to check for everything including NVIDIA, Intel, Realtek etc. I don't mind if I have to pay for it as long as it isn't over a $100. Thanks in advance, Jaidyn
