Yes. The picture is from the start screen. And it does not show the Windows update. Neither does it show any other windows components. It did in the past but it seems an update or something else is blocking this now.
For me using update or windows update shows it....although using the word update...windows update shows half way down the list of about 12 total updates. So, not sure why the discrepancy in the search results.
AV scan didn't find anything. No physical access either. I suspect an update has gone haywire.
Some directories didn't have any permissions left.
I've checked the startmenu folders and there are no lnk files pointing to the windows updates and other windows components. I assume these files have been deleted somehow. Since I can not recreate the links I have to live with it.
I'd find it ASAP....do the repair with. How much important data do you have on it? If this was mine, I'd back up anything of value, but only pictures and documents (that's just me) and do a clean install. Then pay attention to what software you install, one at a time and see if the issue occurs or symptoms return.
