I hope someone can help me with this. I'm running 64-bit Windows 10 Home Edition, and I've noticed that I can't tell whether or not Windows Update is working properly. I've started getting messages that the definitions for Windows Defender are out-of-date even though I have it set to update automatically. When I try to access Windows Update through ""Update & Security" in Settings, the window locks up and never opens. I have to go into Task Manager to end the task. Also, when I shut my system down lately, I have to force quit Task Host Manager in order to finish shutting down my PC. I've run several different virus scans and a rootkit scan and nothings been found.
Do I need to repair my Windows 10 install? If so, how do I do that since I don't have a physical disk to do that from thanks to the upgrade process that MS used. Let me know if this should be moved over to the Virus forum instead.
Thanks for any help.
