Try with your Firewall turned off and see if that helps.
If using XP you could try Dial-A- Fix that sorts out some updating problems.
Or give Malwarebytes free a run to see if it finds any problems.

Have you tried setting Microsoft updates to automatic,and then see if you get the updates.
Or if set to automatic switch it of try Manually Updating windows and see if it lets you.
If not switch automatically update back on and try manually once more.

I don't suppose you are using Avast anti virus are you ? It has been known to do this , so have other anti virus programs , temporarily disable yours and try again .
