The Toshiba webpage has driver for wireless card and ethernet card have you try to install those drivers i know there is more than one driver but that does not matter start installing drivers one at time i'm sure one of the network driver is for your laptop. You should also install Intel Display Driver for your laptop. Can you give us the Hardware IDs of all Unknown Devices from Details tab.

Download  WSUS Offline Update and download all Windows 7 updates with WSUS Offline Update after all updates downloaded execute Update.cmd as a administrator which is located within client folder. You may need to execute Update.cmd twice first time you have executed the Update.cmd it may ask you to restart the computer after doing that execute Update.cmd again to install remaining Windows 7 updates.

Hi x_LUIS_X

 

Please open the Command Prompt by clicking Start Menu --> All Programs --> Accessories, right-click on Command Prompt, and open it as an administrator.

Type following command and press Enter key.

Rd  /s  /q "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" 

Restart your computer and see if you can install Windows updates.
