I have a problem with my windows updates. For some reason the windows update center is not working and my last update was on 16/9. I get a message to restart but nothing happens.
I've already tried sfc/scannow, fix it, windows troubleshooting, fixit50123 and Fixit 50202 but the problem still remains. Somebody told me that cleanup registry that tune up maintenance is using propably causes the problem but don't know how to reverse the clean up. if somebody can help me without formatting i would be grateful
Thank you in advance

My advice is to stay as far away as you possibly can from Registry Cleaners, Boosters, Optimizers, TuneUp Utilities... You'll only end up crippling programs and the operating system beyond repair! These programs are completely useless and will delete what they don't understand and legitimate files still in use.

Keep in mind that they will always find "errors" to fix, even on a fresh Windows installation!

Depending on the program you used, you can sometimes restore a backup it created.

Good luck!
