Press the windows key + R and type in services.msc and press enter
Click the Name column heading to sort the names in reverse order. Find the Windows Update service, right-click it, and then click Properties.
On the General tab, next to Startup type, make sure that Automatic is selected.
Next to Service status, check to see if the service is started. If it is not, click Start. Administrator permission required If you're prompted for an administrator password ***** confirmation, type the password ***** provide confirmation.
Once started tell me if the update now installs.
Let me know the results please

which anti virus software do you have installed?
I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.
Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.
I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.
Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.
If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.
