Windows Vista Updates Issues

by KSUpride / August 16, 2011 10:57 AM PDT

Hello, I would like to do Windows updates on Vista. However, When I click to do the updates I get this pop up with a message stating

"Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. you may need to restart your computer"....

I restarted several times but it 's not working. Can anyone help please? Thanks

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
