Microsoft Update has stopped working on Win7. I had it at 'never update' because I wanted to do it manually. Now even tho I changed setting to download, but let me choose when to install' it won't update. This could be a major problem. Thanks.
hello Seafires and welcome to HTG Forums.
Have you activated your copy of windows yet? I don't think MS Update will let you update until you do. If so, what type of error are you getting when you try to update?
You may want to perform a system restore if possible.
On a side note, make sure you system clock has the correct date/time. I've had PC's not update simply because the date was wrong.
