Run a virus scan.

There is a worm which blocks access to Windows Update, and it is really easy to test.

Can you see all six images on the “Conficker Eye Chart”

It might be a virus. Do you have a ant-virus program? If not use AVG the free version.
And you might also maybe* have deleted some files which links to the Windows Update.
and it depends on wich OS you use?
