If this was a clean install - meaning that you reformatted the hard drive and installed from the CD, the updates should work.

If it was a repair, then you may have other issues.

Why and how did you reinstall Windows?

I'm glad to hear that you finally fixed the problem by reinstalling again,
but for future reference, you or if anyone else has a similar problem, try
going to START > RUN and type in the following commands to
re-register several *.DLL files and that might fix the problem.

regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll
