he bought a new pc which had out of date drivers which he didnt realize when buying it and only realized it now.. and there is no way of updating it because it wont let him run the update program not components just drivers like graphic drivers and stuff

The only reason I know of that he is unable to update officially is if he is using a illegal copy of windows.

Well, sometimes they do, but I'd think if you had a legit business you'd get in trouble very quickly!

I realize that he probably would have done this already if it was an option, but this would be a good time to go back to the seller and say "hey this thing refuses to run windows update, what's the deal?" You kinda need updates--microsoft has made sure of that!
