Windows 10 needs to have windows update installed regularly.
Sometimes, updates are not getting downloaded without visible reasons.
One important service for Windows Update is "Windows Update Medic Service".

  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WaaSMedicSvc in registry editor.
  • Double-click on Start registry DWORD to modify its Value data in right pane.
  • Set the Value data to 4 to disable Windows Update Medic Service (1 to enable that service)
  • Click "OK". Close Registry Editor and restart the machine to make changes effective.
