Clean install 7 home premium,windows update not downloading, no error

It has ran for 2 hrs. and nothing. SURT has ran for hrs. also, but it's not going to find any updates.
I ran SFC and it found nothing wrong.
I have gotten no error codes.
I am attaching the and the windowsupdate
The last couple lines in the update log go on for hundreds of lines to the end so. I deleted them.
This is a clean install of Windows Home Premium 64 bit on a Inspiron 1525.
Everything works great except Windows Update.
I hope someone can figure out from the logs what the problem is.

I'm no Windows 7 Update expert but I did take a look at your logs. I think added information would be help full.

Make sure you complete this tutorial completely.

I believe this tutorial completed would also be helpful.

Thank you for the reply. I left Surt running a long time and it found one update.I believe it was the one update that was on the clean install that I uninstalled. I wasn't expecting it to help after spending six hrs trying to fix the problem, but I installed it anyway.After it was done and I rebooted, Windows update was working correctly.Hallujah!
