Windows Update unable to check for updates Please Help

i have downloaded "Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1 x64" from microsoft servers. installed it from disk. installed all my drivers. my anti virus my anti malware. my pc is clean from threats/malware.

i have reset i have gone through all the steps to fix windows update. i fixed the error where the windows update service is corrupt and/or missing. still takes for ever to check for updates. i have a Windows 7 home Premium 64 setup disk from 2010 before Service pack 1 release. the windows update works fine before microsoft kicked out support for non service pack 1. anyway. i dont know what to do.
