Windows Update won't start. Says it is starting
Posted 13 November 2012 - 06:59 PM
When I go into the Task Manager, it shows the CPU usage at 100%. I have looked everywhere on the web and can't seem to find a way to reduce the CPU usage. I have turned off the side bar and disabeled several program from running in the start up.
I did find a posting that said it might be due to not maintaing Windows Updates. When I checked Windows Update I found I could not update. I went to services and find that the windows update service is starting (not started). I tried to go in and sop and then restart the service but it is grayed out. I can't get it to start. I was thinking that if I could do the updates he needs in Windows Update, I might be able to correct the problem in the services.
If anyone can direct me to how to correct this, I would sure appreciate it.

Unzip ProcessExplorer.zip, and double click on procexp.exe to run the program.
Click on View > Select Colunms.
In addition to already pre-selected options, make sure, the Command Line is selected, and press OK.
Go File>Save As, and save the report as Procexp.txt.
Attach the file to your next reply.
Please download Farbar Service Scanner Download Link and run it on the computer with the issue.

What do I do to get the Process Explorer to open. I tried safe mode and it didn't help.
