Computer cannot find any updates.

I hope someone can help me. I have a fresh install of Windows 7 Basic 64 bit. Activacted and ready to go. No antivirus yet because I do not want to block updates. When I go to Windows update and check for updates the computer will start searching. It will never find anything and it will never stop searching. I have reinstalled the windows 3 times. All ways the same. I hope someone can help me.

Is there any software that can check automatically for driver updates? It'll have to check for everything including NVIDIA, Intel, Realtek etc. I don't mind if I have to pay for it as long as it isn't over a $100. Thanks in advance, Jaidyn
