Windows Updater Not Working

I am using Vista Business and my windows updater is not working all I get is either a see through box or a white blank page, I even tried doing a repair and it is still not letting me download updates either automatically or manually, any suggestions, I have done 3 different virusscans to make sure I hadn't picked up something and they all came up clean.:mad::confused:

Here is a possible solution to your problem, but it depends on the error code:
