Windows Update Error
Hi everyone. I am trying to localize the issue I am having with windows update. I am posting here because after updating to the latest Nvidia driver (GeForce 331.65 Driver) I now receive this error when trying to update windows: "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer." So now I am unable to update Windows 7. I have tried a few fixes without luck and I found one person online that had this issue after installing a new hard drive so I figured I would post here to see if anyone else has had an issue. Any ideas or tips would be helpful. Thanks! - Mike
