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.

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.

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.
