Windows 7: "Windows could not check for updates automatically" message

31 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
 
 
"Windows could not check for updates automatically" message

When I turn on my computer the"Windows could not check for updates automatically" message has been appearing for about six weeks It also says click here to check for updates now.
I click and the message tells me to restart to install most recent updates.
It lists my most recent updates as 11/14/12.
Yet when I check for my Windows Update History, all my updates are current thru today's date.

Why does this message always appear about Windows failing to update automatically, yet when I look at my updates they are all current?
