Oh My! You are seriously going to have to put a little more detail than that....

Preferably the game your playing, computer specs, and the issues that your coming up with in full detail

I'm thinking the same thing

Download MalwareBytes and run a Full System Scan

Also, can you check/uncheck any other features in the "Turn Windows Features on/off" screen?

Actually, can I ask where you got your version of Windows from? If it's not genuine things would stop working like that.

Just a question of eliminating obstacles

its genuine and activated

and its for certain that the update is not working for whatever reason. Perhaps i need to take this to another thread, that is if they are not related... are they?
