Setting up a brand new Windows 7 64 bit laptop for a friend, and installing Secunia PSI -- of course!

I get the yellow exclamation that "Microsoft Update is not installed" and then click "Install Microsoft Update."

One variation of the error I get is at least funny -- for https://www.update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/ -- the following:
"There is a problem with this website's security certificate. The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address. Security problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server. We recommend that you close this webpage and do not continue to this website." blah, blah, blah ...

If I click to go to the website anyway, it comes right back to:

"Use your Start menu to check for updates.
Windows Update is included in Control Panel. To check for updates:
Click the Start button" ... yada, yada yada ...


Most of the time it just goes straight to the "Use your Start menu to check for updates." I've tried manually typing in the update.microsoft.com address and it still goes back to "use your start menu etc."

How do I get microsoft update instead of just windows update so that secunia psi will work right?

Thanks!

Is the Action Centre showing in the Task Tray? Is that showing a problem message?

Have you tried the FixIt tool? http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_update/
