Mod edit: moved to Am I Infected from WIN7 ~~boopme




I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with my Windows Update.

I don't know how long it hasn't been working ..


I followed the Troubleshooting on the Windows website that tells me there is an issue with the BITS but I can't find that listed in the Services ..

I've been trying to look and see if my system has been infected by malware or anything like that as well, but nothing has been found yet.


Not really sure what to do, and my system not being up to date is preventing me from doing alot of things :(


Any help would be appreciated...
