windows update will not work

  BLACKBEN 18:51 04 Jul 12

I have tried scannow, chkdsk amongst many others to no avail. I click on win update and a message pops up saying service not in operation restart to activate. The win update in services is switched on where do I go from here.

You could download the Microsoft "Fix it" tool discussed in this article.

I meant to add that if this is not successful you could try a system restore to a point before the problem started.

Have now got updates working more by fluke than knowledge. My other problem is wifi card keeps disapearing from device manager and if I restart it will appear for about 5 mins and then is missing again from D/M? wi fi dongle works okay. Thanks

Have you checked to see if your wifi adapter driver is up to date and also the driver for your dongle?
