  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.

Download batch script i attached to my post run the batch script as a administrator to reset Windows update components. After you accept to restart your computer check for new Windows updates. Configure your computer power settings to stop computer sleeping.

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"



Anyone able to help with this?
