Windows 7 will not update

The wife's laptop hardly used, and been setting and has been setting for about 7 months. She finally decided she wants to learn/use it. I have been trying to get everything updated, and a few programs automatically popped up for updates and were successfully. However I can't get the Windows updates to run it says, Windows update can't check for updates because the service in not running. Try rebooting. That didn't work
I ran MrFixitit, another fix from microsoft and nada. I checked the services and the update one is running and on auto. I tried shutting it off and back on, set it to run automatically and auto with delay. Rebooting between any change. My update restart button finger is getting worn out Help!!

The computer has only been on line 7 months ago to update the programs, including win7 and has no virus's.
