Windows 7 Update Error - Has not updated for 90 Days!

I just found out windows has not updated since November 2017

When i manually searched for updates these windows appeared

I have tried uninstall software around that date, including Intel RST drivers for my Samsung SSD which i heard could cause update issues, ran disk check, Automatically fix file system errors, Scan for and detect recovery of bad sectors, cleared everything expect thumbs in Disk Cleanup, cold booted, ran Window Experience Index and have done full virus scans with Avast, Malwerebytes and Super anti spyware but still get the same issue; what should i do next and how do i figure out what caused this (particularly if its something malicious) thanks

Here's another trick which might fix it for you:

Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to something else. It is located in C:\Windows

Give it any name you like; the point is to make it unavailable to Windows, so that Windows will have to create it again. For example, you could rename it to SoftwareDistribution1

By renaming the folder rather than deleting it, you can easily restore it by fixing the name. I don't know if you will ever need to restore it, but my habit is to simply rename a folder rather than delete it.

Apparently the contents of that folder track your Windows updates, and they may be corrupted.
