moving from Vista/Win7 forum

Vista machine cant perform win updates - no service
My stepson has been using bittorrent :/ - I think hes gotten some infection. Can't start the windows update service. There is not even a service called Windows Update defined.

I tried the wuagent download and force, nothing.

I ran malwarebytes and it did not find anything. Can't run defender because it wont download the updates.

I tried starting the service as it appears on another vista machine (system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) but that does not do anything.

See image at http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217/vista-machine-cant-perform-win-updates-no-service-472865.html for screen shot (can't reupload)
