W7 not updating?

Hi,

Restored an image of W7 clean installed using Macrium, but is not updating displays the error in the screen capture.

It was created 3 years back.....

Any ideas which services should be running and arent?

BITS, Windows Update and Time are running....

Thanks.

You can perform a repair install of Windows 7 to fix your currently installed Windows 7 and preserve your user accounts, data, programs, and system drivers.
