Does anyone know if Windows Updates is working as I keep getting an error saying it can't be done at this time.

When I click on Windows Update all it keeps saying is 'Windows Update cannot currently check for updates,because the service is not running. You may need to restart your PC'. I have done that several times to no avail. Any help?
