I have a Toshiba Satellite c655 laptop in which I have installed Windows 7 64 bit Home premium. And because of some unexpected circumstances the hard drive died on it, so I bought a latest hard drive and bought the suitable Recovery media from Toshiba.
I followed the directions and installed the 3 disks on to the new hard drive. But unfortunately after doing this all the windows update does not work as I used to obtain the error saying Windows update cannot presently confirm for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your PC“.
No matter what I try, I cannot get it to work. And it will not allow me to install Windows Defender moreover. Any ideas or assistance would be esteemed. Thank you in advance for your time on this subject.
