Hi, and thanks for the reply

Unfortunately the original problem still remains.
I have even contacted microsoft support, but they stopped replying after numerous attempts at fixing the problem failed.

is your Background Intelligent Transfer Service started and set to auto?
windows update and a few other software need this service for updates.
also check to see if your firewall is not blocking outbound svchost.exe.
windows update only needs these two to work correctly.

Is that thread still up to date?

Probably this error occur only on HP computers and it's caused by any HP drivers or software.

First try install the newest IRRT drivers ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp47501-48000/sp47845.exe

It should help

Hi Flavius,

Sorry for the late reply, I was quite busy of late.
The above post fixed the problem 100% Update is now working, as well as MSSE - Hopefully this helps other DV7 owners.

Thank you very much for all your effort in this thread, as well as pm's, it is much appreciated!

Hi all,

I have a HP Pavilion dv6-3054ca with this same problem, error message : Windows update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer.

installing sp47845.exe did not solve it for me.

Does anyone one have a clue on the next step i should take?
Thx in advance.
