My laptop has been acting up lately so I did a factory restore and now windows update wont work properly. When I try to check for updates, it gets stuck checking forever. I've done a couple more factory restores to try and fix the problem, but to no avail. I tried the windows update troubleshooter, but an error occurs when you try and run it so the trouble shooter doesn't even work. What is wrong with this piece of crap laptop of mine?

I finally ran the windows update troubleshooter and the problems found were: service registration is missing or corrupt, and problems installing recent updates. The troubleshooter says it fixed those two problems, but the problem I'm having still happens. I tried that link above, which didnt work.
