used to see notification box for updates when available ,but for some reason no longer.I have to manualy check. (box is ticked to allow notifications)????
Also was under impression that driver updates would auto instal for Win 7 ,today checked system with (free update program) and showed 14 ancient drivers ,some pertinent to microsoft /win7.?????
Installed security programs . Iobit malware /malwarebytes/spybot/AGV 2011/CCleaner/Registry Mech/ could any of these be causing issue.
* IMHO -
Iobit would be better removed.
Spybot is not generally recommended to be used with Win 7.
CCleaner....there are various views about this type of program.
Unless you are a very experienced computer user this type of program is best avoided.
Used carelessly problems can & do happen.

* Re Update not working.
Go to Start > run > input "services.msc" > scroll down to Windows Update > check that the Status is started & that the Startup Type is automatic.

*For good measure run SFC. & Check Disk.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Disk Check
