I've replaced the hdd in my laptop with a larger 500gig drive. I had a backup of the old drive using Acronis True Image 2013. I installed the image on the new drive and all appears to be working ok.
However I tried to run windows update and get the error message "Windows update service not running" I've downloaded and run Microsoft fix it centre. This reports that the problem was fixed, but it isn't. I've tried other 'fix it' progs with no success.
I seem to recall un-checking a service in 'services' to do with automatic windows updates as the .exe was using 100% processor, but I can't remember what it was. Stupid of me I know.
I would be grateful if someone can point me in the right direction.
