cannot access windows update

Specs: Windows MCE, 1GB
This is on my fathers pc which is running mce.

It will access the internet no problem.
I have even done an online virus scan with bitdefender and housecall.

But it will not access windows update????
Keeps saying connection problem,it thinks there is no internet connection.
Previously was able to connect to windows update.

Tried hijackthis but once I've either loaded the saved log file of copy/pasted the results and then click analyse it then goes to the connection problem page again?

rebooted into safe mode with networking and still the same issue.

I've also reinstalled IE8 but no luck.

I'm puzzled now,it smells of some type of infection but AVG,bitdfender and housecall cannot find anything wrong.

analysed hijackthis log from another pc and it comes up clean.

stumped

SOLVED
After extensive googling found a few posts referrring to HitmanPro35 which found a rootkit on their PC's.

Downloaded and ran said HitmanPro35 and it did indeed find a rootkit and successfully removed it.

Can now access windows update and can analyse hijackthis.
