Clean install Windows 7 will not update

still having update issues as well as most games wont install they fail and dont say a reason why.

Open the Windows Update troubleshooter

Assuming you've tried to manually update anything, just to see if it works?

Try activating again, if you've only done it once.

It sounds more like the Windows Installer service is corrupted, which would likely point to a bad installation.

I'd check and make sure the hardware doesn't have any errors, be it RAM, CPU or HDD and re-install.
