    So i just got this laptop. and i use it for gaming and schoolwork. but i cant connect to the gaming servers online nor will it let me update my windows . i keep getting a message that says "windows update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running. you may need to restart your computer." Well i've restarted my computer and i checked to see if i can update.... but i still get the same message. I even tried turning off my firewall and still it wont work. i have no problem with connecting to the browsers and browsing online but the only problem i have is gaming online and updating windows (And it wont update :( . ) anyone can help me with this issue?

    The service that needs to be running is Windows Update, you can find the service by typing service in the Start menu, Then right click on it and choose Start
