Cannot download anything including Updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.
    I've inherited a Windows Server 2008 r2 Foundation Server.  My first task at hand was to catch up on updates.  I installed the first 16 or so that were already in the queue.  Right after the needed restart, now I'm not able to download anything - including checking for more updates.  I've disabled IE ESC, I've double-checked the security settings of IE, I've even uninstalled the updates previously installed hoping it'd self-correct itself.  Nothing.  When I try and run Microsoft Updates, I'm told the service is not running, when in essence it is. 
    There is a driver update needed, and when I'm posed with the "open" or save as requests in IE11, nothing happens.  I can however install things from Media locally.

    Thanks for any input in advance.
