OK but is there a solution to make Windows Update work?

My wife's Windows 7 laptop does not get any updates for a few months now. Checking it with antivirus software, using Microsoft tools and fixes for Windows Update did not work. Third party scripts re-registering all the required DLLs and their dog had no visible effect. Even installing manually the newest Windows Update solved nothing.

I know my wife is safe from Windows 10. But maybe there is a way to install all the security updates without doing it manually which is a process I do not wish my worst foes.
