Updated Windows cannot currently check updates, because the service is not running. You may have to restart your computer

Original title: Windows Update problem, help please

Whenever I go to windows update, it says "Windows update cannot currently check updates, because the service is not running. You may have to restart your computer"I restarted my computer, but the same message back steadily for several weeks. How can I fix?

Thank you

Hi Lydia,.

There are three services that are important to check, download and install the updates. These services are Background Intelligent of cryptographic services service and the Windows update Service. These should be in the started state and currently running on the computer so that the computer connects to Windows Update Server, check the update that corresponds to the computer, and then download them accordingly.

Follow the steps in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2730071 and make sure that these services are started on the computer. If they are, then if he please stop and then restart the services. Restart the computer once that change in services.

It will be useful.
