Windows 7 Ultimate X86 32bit, Version 6.1.7601 Service pack 1 build 7601, antivirus Microsoft Essentials only no third party cleanup or registry cleaner Explorer 10 While looking for answers found Jose Posadas reply of Update Readiness Tool, did it no results, went to his next question no failed updates since march. all reasonable. Next went to system info looking for three services to stop. The first AutomaticUpdate Service was missing the other two Background Intelligent Transfer, and Cryptographic service were there. Is this what's going on! Update service has somehow been deleted from my computer.I Error Code states updates could not be checked. I attempted to go to the update site from IE the site would not open. I haven't performed any of the steps Jose mentioned but would very much appreciate your input on this matter. Now, when Downloading the Update readiness tool the site downloads a Hotfix KB947821 this update is included in the history but according to Windows my last update was on June 13th 2013. Today July 13th 2013 was the first notification of an error in update attempt. I run Essentials daily and the last scan was at !:00am successful w/o threats. I Quarantine all threats nothing found. The only major download I have made recently was on June 3rd. I drive backup, I only back up personal folders and programs no full back up. I have it on 3 computers on a wireless connection home network. My others are having no update problems and have Windows 7 home edition x64 and XP home premium. Contact me if you need any more info.
Thanks much Pat
