Windows 7: Win7 Pro 64-Bit: Update Wervice not running...recent issue

11 Dec 2017   #51

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Few minutes ago Action Center said Windows Defender needs an update. After installing this update Windows Update started to work again. Looks like Microsoft have fixed this issue.
Just in case I checked the other computer, Windows Update refused to work. I updated Windows Defender same way and Windows Update magically worked too. Computer restart may be required for fix to apply.
