W7-32: Windows Update not functioning ; no catdb

After installing a new OS (W7-32 Professional, SP1) on my Acer Aspire 6935G laptop in which I placed a new disk drive (Seagate Hybrid 750GB), everything seemed o.k. until I noticed that Windows Update didn't function => "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer."

I tried the solution to repair the catdb with the 'esentutl' => Jet error 1811 => no catdb
I then used Fixit (KB971058) => no change
I read somewhere that installing the newest Intel ACHI driver solved the problem => not mine
As a last attempt I did a complete new install of Windows => no success

Who has the solution?

I am not exactly sure why updates should not function after a new install of Windows. Windows 7 updates normally work well..

Look at  and then

These are the links to the System Readiness site and the 32-bit readiness tool.

Try the readiness tool and see if it helps.
