Windows 7 updates

hi, I've recently had problems updating windows seven, the automatic updates having stopped. When I have attempted to update I receive a message saying "Windows update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running" and advertising to restart the computer, but this does not solve the problem. I have in services stopped and restarted the service that this to did not solve the problem. In addition with the command prompt being invoked as administrator, I have stopped the service, registered WUPS2.dll successfully and then restarted the service. I did discover when trying to register the DLL that it was not in the Syswow64 folder so I copied the DLL from the sys32 folder, which allowed successful registration. I've simply out of ideas, can anybody help me please.

Thanks to the people who have looked at this problem, but I have now found a solution. Intel Rapid Storage Technology requires a specific driver if the drive is greater in size than 750gb and it seem possible that I have updated the driver with the wrong version. The correct version can be downloaded from :

This also sorts out problems with Windows Defender.

I hope you find this useful
