My windows update wont start.This is what pops-up. I've tryed restarting the PC.
Hello and welcome to the Windows7forums, Go to Start > Run, and type services.msc Scroll down until you see Windows Update and make sure it;s started and set to Automatic. If it isn't started, right-click on it and choose start. You may have to reboot your computer for the change to take affect.
It's not there
WOO, It's not there Go to Control Panel and see if it's listed here.
What happens when you double-click on It?
It opens the windows update window.
So, does it find new updates or do the same thing it was doing before?
Go to Start > Run, and type services.msc. Look for Desktop Windows Manager Session Manager and make sure that's also started and set to Automatic.
It is started and set to automatic
You never answered my question about the Desktop Windows manager shows up in Task manager.
You didnt ask that. None the less its not there.
Go to Start > Run, and type cmd. Now type sfc /scannow
Ill get back to you when its done.
Done. It says Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
I've done some searching on Google and found out a virus may b causing this issue. I would suggest a complete scan of the hard drive.
Seeing Windows update does not appear in services, you basically have 2 choices. Choose a restore point to go back to or perform a "clean" install. Be aware, you'll need to re-install all your 3rd party application. You also have yo cop your Documents, pictures, music, video's, contacts, etc to a flash drive.
