Default Computer unable to run MS updates.

I'm working with a IBM laptop and its been having some problems getting updates. Its been doing this for a while i was told. I attached a screenshot of what it does, and it just stays there. Any suggestions?

Is the Windows an original copy? Also if u have any firewalls make sure they arent blocking the downloads.

ran ad aware, found nothing. Ran HiJackThis, NOTHING. Tried updates in safe mode, didn't work. Uninstalled IE7, didn't work. Re-registered DLL files, didn't work. Also the user of the computer said that it hasn't been updating since Sept. 2005. Now why does he just now say something about it? I have no clue. Any other ideas?
