I can not get Windows Updates!!

Through two computer companies and XP and 7 can not get these updates. Had Microsoft, manufacturer and Verizon take over my computer but they could not fix it.
Code says clock is isn't.
Microsoft associated company...Fix Cleaner...says my Windows Update Agent is outdated or missing.
It has been about two years without updates. No problems, but would like to get it fixed. Any and all ideas appreciated. I have tried a lot from a lot of places, but nothing. Mike

What is it?

While the most common cause is either malware, a security setting too high (folk block with firewalls set on MAXIMUM) or a toxic combination of software, I have to ask What is it?

Tell more.

Put your Antivirus + Firewall + Malware programs on Default.

That setting is recommended automatically, do not play with these settings.
