    A few months ago, when the April 2018 update came out, I updated my computer with the huge update that has caused numerous issues for people where their computer would not boot after update. This happened to me but I managed to get in and reverse it. I manually turned off updates through advice on here and I wanted to switch them back on again since the issue has since been resolved so I can start getting updates again. I want to download things from the Store as well but you can't unless you have this turned on.


    I went to Services to switch the service back on. The option is not there. I tried to look for updates via the Settings but got nothing but errors. I even tried "net stop" and "net start" through the Command Prompt but it says that the entry is invalid. I have also tried to Troubleshoot Windows Updates but to no avail. I have no idea what happened or how to make it work again.


    How can I get my Windows Update back if I don't even seem to have the service on my computer anymore?

    :)

    AVG Update Cripples Windows

    Switched to Avast! around a couple of months ago and it's been incredibly well behaved. I suggest it to anyone looking for a new anti-virus.

    Cortana was working great but it stopped opening apps about 2 months ago

    Hi,

    Thank you for update and reply.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if that helps.


    • Click on the Setting or Gear icon by tapping on
      Cortana.

    • Under Cortana can give you suggestion, ideas, remainders, alerts and more
      Turn off.

    • Sign out from the current user account.

    • Restart your computer and follow the same steps to
      Turn on Cortana.

    Also follow the link suggested by Sharath Srinivasa on July 30, 2015 to check if the settings are set correctly.

    Why is Cortana not available for me on Windows 10?

    Check for New Windows updates and optional updates.

    Windows Update helps keep your computer up to date with the latest system updates and drivers. You can check Windows Update manually to help ensure you have the latest updates.

    • Hit Windows Key and type
    • Type Windows Updates
    • Click on Windows Updates
    • Click on Check for updates and install the latest
      windows updates.
    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Thanks
