I can not get Windows 7 Update to work at all. I receive a message that the service is currently not running and to restart the computer. This does nothing. I have gone into services under "services.msc" and windows update is not listed as running or stopped.
I came across this issue while trying to get Microsoft Security Essentials to update. I keep getting an error code. Of course now that I am writing this and try to get the error code to reference, the update works. The MSE not updating is a chronic problem for me.
I am still fairly new to the forum, so please let me know if there is additional information, or I make a slip-up.
