windows updates searching, give error 80080005, back to searching

I have 2 computers that I have completely reformatted & Clean Installed Windows 7 on them both. I Have 2 Seperate win 7 disk for them. 1 is a desktop, Other is Dell Inspiron 1545. (Labtop) is the one im working on right now, (testing) I Have Done This Many Times In The Past With No Problems. now im having problems with both getting any more upgrades after windows update installs its version "Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320". After This They Both Hung Up. So For The Labtop, I Have Totally Reformatted Twice From Disk trying to fix this with no success. im stuck on internet explorer 8 and it wont let me go to almost none of the microsoft support pages to be able to run-try other fixes.
I have managed to run the sfc /scannow and it did not find any violations/problems.
I Have Also Downloaded The Stand Alone/Rediness Tool and ran it. It Still Just Says Searching For Updates. Not Sure What Else I Need To Do, Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Logs are attached.

Hi Marie318 & welcome to SevenForums. I'll try to help you.
How long did you let windows update run? It sometimes takes hours usually 3-4 for the updates to appear. some reports of 24-48, but rare. SURT takes a while to complete, depending on the issues it finds.

I usually set my computer to sleep never, start windows update & call it a night. when I check in the morning, 200+ updates are ready to install. If you have 4gb of ram, choose about 100 or so & they should install, for the most-part. Trying to install all of them at once will most likely produce "out of memory" error. WU doesn't choose them in any particular order even though some are prerequisites for others. SP1 is a major one.

If you start task manager under the performance tab, while downloading updates, you will see the ram load. all updates are temporarily stored in ram until Windows verifies each update is complete & digital signature is valid.

Ok, I Let It Run For Several Hrs. During The Night Last Night, Also I Let It Run Almost All Day Today. I Will Try To Make A List Of What All It Installed Before Kicking Up If You You Need Me Too... ? But I Do Know It Was Moving Right Along A Couple things at a time, Until It Installed That Windows Update "320". They Both Do Already Have Sp 1 Installed.

Well I Would Gladly Try It If Ya Could Tell Me How To Get IE 8 To Let Me On Any Of Microsoft's Websites.. It Keeps Saying Website Identification by Verisign at the top With a little padlock showing. on the page from your link it comes up that way and only a "!" inside a big circle in center of page.

Not a problem, I get confused all the time!
did you try the refresh/resend page button located on the opposite of the URL. On IE is is a partial circle with arrow pointer at top.
I clicked on both the links I provided & get through without issue.
Did you notice the access to MS before, or on any other websites?
Try the Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components.bat file.

Well, Im Not Sure Why He Was Banned but I Really Do Still Need Help With This. I Have Tried All This And No Luck. I Even Reformatted, Installed Clean Copy And Still Nothing.. No Error Code Now But Just Sets There Searching For Ever! Do I Need To Start Another Thread To Get Help Now?

I Have Internet Explorer 11 Now, So I Can Access All The Microsoft Pages Again But Nothing Seems To Be Fixing The Update Issue.
