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.

Any suggestions?

Suggest you post to the Security Forum as it sounds like you are infected and things have to fixed before you can get the Update Service working.
Is the PC running any security software - if so what is it and is it up to date?
Don't try anything else before you move to the Security Forum.
