How do I reset Windows Update components?

This is rather lengthy but does go through the whole process of resetting update components.
Did Windows Update work before? When did it quit working? What was done between these times?
Previous System Restore Point before problem? Most recent backup prior it not working?
Complete system backup images are fundamental in restoring little things like this.
Good luck.

windows update never worked since i had installed this OS. various software's are not being installed due to some errors which can be resolved only after updating windows. even windows isn't pirated .
i also tried microsoft fixit , nd windows troubleshooter ,but all that was crap. nothing worked.
i will be highly grateful to that bright minded guy who can help me regarding this problem....
Thanks in advance
