Have tried going to internet options and setting everything back to default? Did Windows update work before you used updaterestore.reg? Did you keep track of all the changes you made while you were changing them? Have you run any anti-virus or online scans to look for any infections on your system?
Without anymore information on what you changed all I can suggest is that you try to retrace your steps while they are still fresh in your memory so we can figure out what went wrong. Try setting the sections you were changing things in back to their system defaults There should be restore default buttons on most of the tabs where you may have changed things, click them to restore your settings to what they were before you changed anything.
Then see if you are able to download your updates.
I hate to lecture at this moment but whenever you make changes to settings on your computer you should make a note of what you did so you can set them back if you have to.
