  My computer running windows 7 service pack 1 will not update. It also will not go into sleep mode by itself.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Jens

Sorry for my late reply. I ran the script and now get an error message that "windows update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running"

Right Click Computer > Manage > Services and Applications > Services.  Double Click Services. In Services make sure the Windows Update Service has started. If not Double Click Windows Update and press the Start button. Make sure Automatic (Delayed Start) is in the dropdown box under Startup Type.

Download and install the Windows Update Agent. Reboot. Do you have the service now?

This Service will appear as Windows Update, it will not state Windows Update Service.
