Error "Windows cannot check for updates because the service is not running.

I am using windows vista 64-bit ServicePack two on my laptop. I recently had to install new hard disks. Since then, Windows update does not work. When I check the updates dialog box appears indicating that Windows cannot check the updates because the service is not running. I used the Microsoft fix - it tool, and it recognizes that there is a problem, but cannot fix. History of the update is completely empty. I would appreciate any ideas on how to solve this problem.

Please read this article:

Another suggestion is maybe disable the updates of Windows


Activate the Windows updates.

Try again. (Worked for some)
