    [UPDATED] Windows update broken for most Win 7 users.

    Windows update broken by Microsoft's latest cumulative update....

    Microsoft forgot to change an expiration date, and now all attempts to run Windows Update in Win7 are failing with the bogus message “Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running.

    There are some suggested temp fixes but it may be best to just wait until Microsoft issues a hotfix to solve the problem.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Update: Microsoft appears to have fixed the issue server-side although some Win 7 users are still reporting
    problems.

    the bad value <ExpiryDate> updates itself when you check for Windows updates.
