Windows 7: Not able to preform Windows update on a clean install of W7 SP1 64B

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Not able to preform Windows update on a clean install of W7 SP1 64B

Hi all,

As the title says, I am not able to preform Windows Update.

So a little bit of background. Over the week I purchased a new 500GB SSD as my old 120GB SSD had reached it's capacity.

I threw in the new SSD and installed Windows 7 SP1 64bit via a legit DVD + key I purchased last year. Installation went smoothly, and I followed with install my mobo drivers, graphics card drivers, and Google Chrome.

Next step was to update Windows, so I launched Windows Updater and clicked check for updates. From there it never stopped checking. I left it alone for 20 min and nothing.

So I decided to consult with the internet. I tried Microsoft's own Fix It tool, and the results told me that there was an error code 0x8024402c.

I did more googling, and found a fix that was working for some people that involved the LAN settings in IE and running the net stop/start wuauserv command. Still nothing.

Eventually my computer told me there were some updates ready to be installed. I was a bit confused, but I shut of my computer to allow the install to start. It took almost an hour to shut down. Then I powered back on and the configuration of the updates started. It stayed at 0% for a long time and then finally failed and reverted back, which also took a ton of time. I gave up and went to bed.

Today I formatted the SSD and started over. Installed W7, drivers, chrome, went to start updates, and still nothing.

I actually just got a message from the action center now saying I have updates ready to install, just like yesterday, so I'm not even going to bother.

Any help would be appropriated! Here's my system specs and a screen shot of my windows update.

I'm having issues uploading the CBS file. I think it has to do with the file being 10MB. Any tips on what to do?
I split the CBS folder into two folders to allow for uploading:

Might want to install this KB first

Installing and searching for updates is slow and high CPU usage occurs in Windows 7

if you have 8 gig ram choose 100 updates, or you will receive out of memory error around 165, WU uses RAM to store updates until integrity verification
