Windows Update cannot run on a Windows 7 PCassalam
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:
Windows Services dialog will appear. Scroll down until you see the Windows Update service, right-click on it and choose Stop.
Now, go to the following folder and delete all the files and folders inside of it but doesn't delete the SoftwareDistribution itself:
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.
