Cannot run Windows Update on Win7

First time on the forum this year so Happy New Year to one and all. Following previous advice from elsewhere I accessed services.msc and scrolled down to find Windows Update but it wasn`t there.I have been informed that the service is not running.Any advice to enable Windows Update would be very welcome.

Unusual for it not to be in Services.maybe rum sfc /scannow and see if it finds any problems or have a look at this.

Problem solved by reference to a Microsoft helpline suggested by a friend.Thanks for everyones input.
