    yello_new Windows Update cannot run on a Windows 7 PC

    assalam



    Sometimes Windows 7 cannot update automatically and showed this error:

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


    Even the restarting doesn't help....To overcome this error/problem..........Just follow the simple steps:

    Start->Run->services.msc

    1180jr9 - Windows Update cannot run on a Windows 7 PC







    Windows Services dialog will appear. Scroll down until you see the Windows Update service, right-click on it and choose Stop.

    10fnnmp - Windows Update cannot run on a Windows 7 PC

    Now, go to the following folder and delete all the files and folders inside of it but doesn't delete the SoftwareDistribution itself:

    C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\

    258p7yg - Windows Update cannot run on a Windows 7 PC

    Once you have deleted everything, go back to the Services dialog using (Start->Run->services.msc) and right-click on the Windows Update service and choose Start.

    All the files and folders will be re-created and INSHALLAH, you can start downloading updates for your PC.
