Why is windows not updating

Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows: Check this option, which is a bit wordier in Windows 7 & Vista, if you own other Microsoft software and you want Windows Update to handle updating those as well.

Show me detailed notifications when new Microsoft software is available: This is pretty self-explanatory — check it if you want to get notifications, via Windows Update, when Microsoft software you don't have installed is available for your computer.

Open Pause Updates: Choosing one of these options will stop Windows from updating your computer for several days, up to 35.When you first turned on your new computer or were finishing your Windows operating system install, you told Windows Update how you wanted it to act — a little more automatic or a little more manual.If your original decision isn't working out, or you need to change how it works to avoid repeating an auto-update issue, like what happens on some Patch Tuesdays, you can simply adjust how Windows receives and installs updates.Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them: Updates will be checked for, and downloaded, from Microsoft's servers, but they won't be installed until you manually approve them.Notify me but don't automatically download or install them: Windows Update will check for new updates from Microsoft, and let you know about them, but they won't be downloaded and installed until you say so.
