Default Serious Problem with Microsoft Update

I have a serious problem with Microsoft Update everytime I try to scan for updates the ones Microsoft released today they won't come up and last time I updated my computer was back in July when the last time updates came out. I've tryed other computers in my home and they all updated perfectly. So can I this problem solved? or how can i fix this if this doesn't fix I'll probably format and reinstall OS or I'll use AutoPatcher. Any suggestion what I should use?

Make sure ActiveX is enabled in Internet Options, and windowsupdate.com is in the 'Trusted Websites' list.

I'm trying to download the update MS released today part of their monthly update patch batch well for some reason their not showing on Microsoft Update on my computer but I have 2 other computers and I can update those just fine except for the computer currently using as I type this up to you. So my point is I can't get today's updates cuz their not showing on MU.
