Ok, do the same steps, except when you right click it, click either "start" or "restart" in the context menu. You may also need to reboot after that.

I was referring to going back the the services section and right clicking the windows update service. Then click start or restart. Not sure if you understood me correctly.

ok, just making sure. The next thing you can try is start menu>type "cmd" in the search box and it should appear in the menu>Right click> run as administrator(you may be prompted to click continue by user account control) then in the command prompt type sfc/ scannow (just like that WITH the space) then hit enter. This will check the integrity of the system files and replace any damaged ones.

Also, who "serviced" your computer? Just curious

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix them.Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\logs\CBS\CBS.Log for example C:\windows\logs|CBS\CBS.Log

That is result of the scan and by the way service did National PC Solution (Australia)never hear but they cover my waranty on that pc.....
