I have a Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 and my HDD crashed. I had it replaced and most of my data restored. However, now Windows Update does not work. I also cannot update Microsoft Security Essentials. When I try Windows Update it says, "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer." I have tried all the fixes on the internet including the Microsoft fixes. None has worked. I am beginning to believe that the install of Windows 7 on this new HDD has a problem. Any ideas?
