Vista update no longer works

I have a new NEC Laptop but Windows updates have ceased to work (no connection to server). AVG and Superanti-spyware will not update either. I have a good connection to the internet and can browse and receive email.

I checked the update logs and found that the last successful update was on the 21st Feb  update for Office 2007 KB9496691

Re-installed everything and all working fine now
Is there a software firewall preventing the connections?  For example, not allowing the update program to connect to the Internet.

i have checked that but there only appears to be Windows Firewall and I have turned that off to see if that worked but no change. There were a series of big updates for MS Office on that day - would that have anything to do with it?
