Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer.
The above is the message I get every time I click on "Check for updates" on Windows Update. When I bring up the Windows Update, there is a big cross with a red background on the screen. The setting is set to "Install updates automatically (recommended)".
I have restarted the computer a number of times. And I also checked and ensured the Windows Update service had started. However I still ggt the same error message.
