Torch you asked for the files and i have uploaded them... is there anything that can be done?

Would a repair install do the trick or would you recommend a reformat (which i really want to avoid). Thanks

Hi
I have the exact problem as the OP. I found this thread, and it says there is a fix at post #9. That post is from the OP. How can he post his own fix? I know nothing about computers. Just an end-user. The last post (#10) is a link to a MS site which says it is for IT pros only. It's all Greek to me. Can someone help? I notice that the OP has not posted that his/her issue is solved.

I'm attaching pictures to show what I have encountered. I have restarted several times, no change.

Thanks for any suggestions.
P.S. My Windows Update History is blank. How can that be?

Hi therealsimpsons. The Thread you are referring to with the reference to Post #9 was located elsewhere. However, that Post was mine & below is the method that has been used to fix the problem you are having. Read it carefully & follow the directions.

"Windows update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running, You may need to restart your computer".

This is exactly the message you get when the AuthCab has expired. Doing the following seems to fix it:

The date on the computer has to be reset & to do that follow this:

To reset the date on the computer Right Click on the Clock at bottom RH corner of the screen, select Change Date & Time Settings, when that opens click on the Internet Time tab, Then select Change Settings, then untick Synchronise with Internet Time Server, be sure to tick OK, then select the Date & Time tab, Then select Change Date & Time & set the date back to 3 Dec.

Then reboot the computer & then run Check for Updates in Windows Update, it should update to the 3 Dec. In some cases you may need to try an earlier date if the 2nd doesn't work.

Then reboot, reset Internet time Synch, change computer date to today's date, re run Check for Updates in Windows Update & it should check for Updates & came back with Windows is up to date, with the latest updates installed.

This method should retain all your Update History as well.



The reason for this procedure, is that Windows accesses an AuthCab during the start-up procedure that Authorises access to the Windows Update download site. This authorisation expired on 3 Dec for a lot of users & access get blocked to the Windows Update site.

By running the repair I listed above, resetting the computer date & rebooting provides access to Update site at which MS have now reset the expiry of that AuthCab which gets installed on your computer, so it can now download & install Updates. Of course it is then necessary to reset the date on the computer & re run Check for Updates to bring it completely up to date.

Perfect, Ranger4! I had to set the date back to November 28, the day after the last updates were installed, but as of this moment Windows has downloaded and is installing 13 important updates that were discovered 15 minutes ago.

Thank you so much. I can't mark this thread resolved, as I am not the OP. But my issue certainly seems to be.
