Default Windows Update does not work

When I try to update my Windows Vista Basic through Windows Update, it always gives me an error. I'm not sure, but I have an update problem with Trend Micro and Windows Defender, and TM says that it is a proxy problem. I did have a proxy a month ago, but it has been removed for awhile now.
