I have a Windows 7 machine that, when I run the Windows Update program, gives me an error that says:
Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer.
Restarting the computer does not help. When I check the Windows Update service, the status is "Started". The Startup type is "Automatic (Delayed Start)".
Changing the type to manual and stopping/restarting results in no error message and no action when the "Check for Updates" button is pressed.
How can I get this machine to update? Thank you
