Windows will not update!

I did a clean install after my computer was getting slow, and I wanted to clean it up. I am now unable to get the Windows to do updates. I ran the Microsoft repair and it did the following,

Service registration is missing or corrupt. (Fixed)

Problems installing recent updates (fixed)

Windows update error 0x8024402c (2016-07-11-T-09_29_06P). (Failed)

Under update history I see the following downloads,

Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320
Hot fix for Windows (KB2505454)

Ok I missed these instructions during my search my apology! I am now running the Windows update standalone installer and it says searching for updates on this computer is that normal?

I ran the (SURT) tool, but after 2 hours I forced it to shutdown, as it was not doing anything. The error codes I am getting is written above, and windows update still just spins. Scan now did not find anything but I will post the log!

Hi,
Manually install these updates
As always it helps if you switch your update settings to Never check for updates first and restart the machine or the search will hang,

When I finally turned off the computer last night, it said installing updates upon shutting the computer down. I am going to post two screen shots of what It found before I continue with your suggestion. It sat there for hours saying searching for updates, so I do not know how it found the following! I also attempted to download Microsoft Security Essentials, but it will not update, that keeps telling me it has failed as well. Should I continue with the above downloads?

Hi,
I would also suggest downloading Microsoft net framework 4.5.2 if it's not already installed yet
Go to uninstall a program and see if it exists the updates you showed doesn't list any updates for it,
This is a off line installer just run it from your downloads folder after it fully downloads,
