Windows 7 Updates have stopped
Posted on 2014-11-16
Windows 7 Pro, Service Pack 1 64 Bit
Dell Optiplex 710 i7, 8GB
Updates just stopped working on November 12.
(unfortunately, there are no restore points before November 12, and Nov. 12 fails to restore)
Norton 360 has been working for a long time without problems.
When I click on Windows Update control panel, it is slow to start.
When I click on Check for Updates, a message appears that Windows cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running.
The computer has been restarted several times.
I ran SFC /scannow as an administrator.
Can I download the Windows Updater or a service pack to fix this?
Any other things to do?
