Windows 7: Windows Update will not run

Windows Update will not run

I am prompted with a box that says "Windows update cannot curently check for updates because, service is not running. You may need to restart your computer."

I have started all the services and have restarted my computer and the prompt continues to appear.

Before doing anything drastic - try this...


Open Windows Update
Click on Change Settings
Select 'Never Update...'
Click OK
exit Windows Update
Now open Windows update again
Click on Change Settings
Select 'Update automatically'
Click OK
exit Windows Update
Open Windows Update, and do a manual Check for Updates.

If you installed some intel rapid storage technology drivers that might be the issue, try uninstlling them and reboot.

The usual problem with the IRST drivers is when they get broken, rather than updated
