I knew an update recently came down from the Land 'O Gates so I tried to use Windows Update.
The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows services is not running:
- Automatic Updates (allows the site to find, download and install high-priority updates for your computer)
- Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) (helps updates download more quickly and without problems if the download process is interrupted)
- Event Log (keeps a record of updating activities to help with troubleshooting, if needed)
Of course the point of this long rant is I lose a bit of functionality and have to accept yet another thing on my computer that is not needed all the time and plays a very small part in the performance of the laptop.
Even better; restart is required - which means it will f'ing nag me every fifteen minutes. How f'ing annoying...
