Select 'Update automatically'

Open Windows Update, and do a manual Check for Updates.

Sorry, you have to tell me what you mean. And which 'update' instructions.

I tried the reset windows update.bat file - I still get the same error message

tried the sfc / scannow thing - the command prompt says 'sfc' is not a valid command

Tried turning the wupdate to 'never check' and then back to 'always check' - changes nothing.

I don't understand how to find the logs you want.

Ran it. Got the same result: sfc / scannow is not recognized as a valid command.

There is NO SPACE after the '/'
The proper command is
SFC /SCANNOW

in that case your system may be seriously hosed.

Please open an elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands.

DIR C:\Windows\SFC*.* /S

it will take a minute or two - please post the full results.

Here are some instructions to make life easier
1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.
2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.
3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.
