Windows 7: Service has started but no screen

10 Jun 2015   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit
Service has started but no screen

As the subject suggests, the Windows update service is active in Services.msc but when selecting it in the start menu, the expected box doesn't appear. I've tried a couple of MS repair utilities where one verifies the PC can connect to the online service but the problem still persists.

I have Windows 7 64-bit.

Thanks and hope you can help.

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
