Hi all

after finding and removing malicious files with malwarebytes in a regular user account, I noticed windows update was not working (not installed please reboot error) so I checked services.msc to see if windows update needed restarting. but it was not there.

IN both the admin account and another regular user account on the same machine windows update works fine and is present in services.msc

any ideas on how to restore windows update and get it working in the affected user account?

cheers

Don

Hi crook,
Windows Update service is not related to different users, but is rather a system-wide process.
If Windows Update shows properly in an Admin account, then it's working.
Limited accounts do not display that service, for security reasons.
