Windows 7 Update Does Not Work

For some reason, I cannot make Windows Update work in my Windows 7 Professional. No matter what option I choose (Install Automatically, etc.), when I try to check for updates manually, I still get the same error messages (attached). How can I resolve this?

Thanks.

Try then my second suggestion.

Set Auto Updates to Never, shut down, start up, Set back to Automatic. Updates should start running.

Then let the machine run all night tonight

Install the following two updates


https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/949104
and
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810

KB3102810 may have been installed July or August Patch Tuesday, but DO install KB949104

Run Windows Updates and restart at the end.

Then try updating again

After that, set updates to Never, shut down, start up, set updates to Automatic and let run overnight. Check in the morning.

In fact, the version of the updater on my computer is higher than the indicated as highest in KB 949104.

Did you try this Microsoft KB? You can try all methods and skip method 2.

Did you check in Services that Windows Update service and Remote Procedure Call service are on?
Run scans with antivirus and antimalware.

The second recommendation by John Hurst following the first one actually worked out, surprisingly :). Thank you very much.

How can a question be closed? I think, the interface was different when I used it last time.
