    I can't believe my eyes ! the windows update was missing from services but now it is successfully restored & now my update issue is 101% fixed ! I tried different fixing guides on youtube but not worked. At last I visited this website and did all the steps of "Full Malware Scan & Removal Guide" and I proceed to "FIX windows 10 update service is missing" then my problem is fixed.
    THANKS A LOT ! THANK YOU SO MUCH !

    Thanks a lot for helping me this out!
    For me did not work until I reinstall (keep files and apps) Windows 10.

    But yours instructions are most professional and all in one place and I search a lot this weekend about that issue.

    None of these worked for me unfortunately. I ended up reimaging the PC and new ISO brought back Win update in services.

    My question is: How in the hell did something remove the Windows Update Service to begin with?

    The second method works plain and simple. And why the hell has not Microsoft addressed this issue?
