  • Hi,

    Before we go further in this issue, I would like to confirm what you mean by "I cannot get windows updater to activate".

    Please let us know more details of it as Andreas Molin and Arnav Sharma mentioned.

    Do you mean you cannot get Windows Update to run, you may try the following steps:

    1. Check Windows Update service's running status, make sure it is automatic. If not, change and start it. Please check the below mentioned services:
     a. Background Intelligent Transfer Service
     b. Cryptographic service
     c. Windows Update

    2. Your antivirus software may be conflicting with Windows Updates. You can test this by temporarily disabling your antivirus:

    Disable Anti-virus software:  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Disable-antivirus-software

    3. Use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7
