I haven't requested updates on my computer. It is running

Customer Question

I haven't requested updates on my computer for awhile. It is running Windows Vista. I have tried 2 days in a row. It doesn't get past "Checking For Updates" and I let that run for 3 hours no success. I just then noticed on the Icon for Windows the message "Windows can't check for updates". How can we clear this trouble? I have run a Virus Scan (Mcfee), used Windows Defender, abd Malware dectection but still have trouble.
