View Full Version : W7 will not check for updates

12-03-2011, 01:01 PM
Have tried to do a Windows update but get “Windows Update cannot currently check for updates as the service is not currently running – you may need to restart your computer”
What is going on here and how do I get it to update?! W7 Pro

Uhm, tried restarting the computer? :p

Start -> Search box, enter services.msc and press enter

Background Intelligent Transfer Service should be configured to have
Automatic (Delayed Start) startup type and should be started.

Windows Update should be started and have an Automatic startup type

Brilliant - thanks for that - looks as though my supplier had never set it up - hate getting under the hood!
