  1. Hi,

    About a week ago I had a nasty virus, I got support from the Virus and malware forum on this site. It help I got was great. Now tho for some odd reason, my windows will not check for updates nor will it update anything. Not sure what to do, but hoping that I can get some support over here :) Thanks!

    use Control -> Security Center and verify Autoupdate is enabled

    Ok, I think it's working now lol, sorry for wasting your time, but when I went to the security part and not just the updater it tended to work fine, not sure if cause I rebooted or what, but it's updating now, thank you :)
