Windows Update will not start.

I have been attempting to get Windows Update running for over an hour so I typed the following into the Internet.
"Windows Update will not open" I did not write down what it said but the following came up when I followed their instructions.
Service regimentation is missing.
Windows Update Error. OX80070057 2017-01-16 T-045052P not fixed.
Could someone please suggest what I do next.

Since then I've found the following software and wonder if that could help me sort the problem out.
Office Home and Students 2010.
Drivers and Utilities already installed.
Recovery DVD 1 and 2

Many thanks for your help on this matter but I could not make it run. I then spent a couple of hours on the Internet and found that this is an endemic problem with Windows 7 which Windows have no bothered to fix and its not good enough because I, and many other computer users are being cheated by Windows.

Hi BML,
sounds like you wern't running as ADMIN, follow this lihk
Run as Administrator

Then copy/paste my instructions into it.


Your failure to update is NOT the one currently being experienced by many users.
The Service registration is missing on yours we need to get it back

you can check by running this tool it will show as missing
