    Windows Update not working after months of being off

    I have changed the settings for Windows update a few months ago. When I turned on the update settings, it always asks me to restart. How to fix this problem?

    Hi,

    It is unlikely that a setting which will be set for along time will refuse to be changed at a later point in time.

    You should try to :

    1. Clean the system using antivirus, clean thoroughly it will take time.
    2. Run Defragmenter to unfragment and better linkage between files and better space management.
    Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter.
    3. If it fails to respond, try a sfc/scannow, from the Command Prompt. It will repair those files which are system files and found to be corrupt.

    Thanks.
