Windows 7: Can't run Windows Update

I've tried troubleshooting it before. It can't find any problems, even though this is a PRETTY big problem. Once again, it couldn't find any problems. Oh, Jacee, that didn't work. Also, as soon as I double clicked the .bat file, it ran by itself. Is it supposed to do that?

No problems. Anyone that stubbles across this problem shouldn't even need to read this forum because all they have to do is click the troubleshooting button after the error. But always better to be safe than sorry.
