Scroll down to Windows listings as in Snips below.

Highlight Windows Update it should be set to Auto. If "Off" or disabled click Restart where I have it circled in yellow towards top left..

Then highlight Windows Module. Same thing click "Start" if off or disabled.

If either of these are disabled the updater will not work.

Is everything for Windows Update enabled? I assume it is after going through the trouble shooters.

Try going to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download. For safety, put everything in there in a "new folder" or "zip file". Then delete everything that is in the download folder except for the "new folder" or "zip file".

Then try update again.
There is nothing in the software distribution\download folder....

Check the services I posted.
It is the only other thing I can think of.

He has no downloads so it should be empty. Fresh install of Win 7.

I tried this method... when I try the update again... it still gives an error... and when I check the option for

1. Windows Modules Installer - it goes back to Manual
2. Windows Update - it goes back to Automatic(delayed start)

Appreciate the help so far.. but it has still not fixed the issue

That fits, since you haven't been able to update yet.

What happens when you go here,

Microsoft Update

Have you tried resetting windows update?

Windows Update - Reset

Activation and Validation went successfully?

That is what you wanted to find Auto and Manual.

I didn't know anything about the Module Installer until a few weeks ago.
I just wanted you to check to be sure.

Sorry that didn't get things resolved.
