    1. Click Start, select Run and type: Services.msc
    Press Enter
    Locate the - "Automatic Update"
    Make sure the service is not disabled and started.
    if Automatic Update Service is missing from the services.msc list.
    Register the file wuaueng.dll:
    Click Start, select Run
    Type: regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
    Press OK.

    2. if that fails:

    Hi Varun, I have given you the only suggestions I have.
    You have checked that Automatic Update Services has been started and not
    disabled. You ran or checked out Kelly's tweak and that didn't help either.
    I can't think of anything else to assist you. Perhaps someone else may have
    more suggestions for you.

    Hi Varun, thank you for offering to be my friend but unfortunately due other
    commitments and heavy demands on my time at the moment, I am unable to chat
    with you online. Hopefully you find a solution to your problem in the near
    Have a good week.
