    Default Windows 7 Update Failure

    Recently Windows 7 Update has ceased to function. Furthermore, the Windows 7 Troubleshooter fails to resolve the issue. Is there a safe remedy for this condition, please?

    It did have probs last week. It was because of an expired cab file or something. It kept saying the windowsupdate service wasn't running.

    If this is the cause / error it should have been fixed by now

    If you didnt see this error message then what does the error say?

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    The problem persists. All I get is this:
    "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer."
    A restart does not help.
