having several problems...
1. whenever I run "check for updates", it never finishes. I've let it run for more than 24 hours.
2. I can't seem to run certain programs because they require Visual C++ 2013 or 2015 (I'm not entirely sure which one), but I've downloaded both, and the programs still won't run.

Hmmmm.... There are many reasons why your computer may have the updates not complete. What OS are you running?
Also a corrupted OS can cause certain things to register improperly even when you reinstall them. You may or not have Malware / Spyware / viruses on your computer but it can't be ruled out.
I would run a program called AdwCleaner and MalwareBytes for starters to check for any infections to your system.
CCleaner is also a good idea because it contains a registry check features. As with all products and advice suggested here, please consult the advice of a computer professional first before performing any self maintinence
