Windows update not working

I am running Windows 7 on my Dell laptop and have noticed that I've had no updates for 6 months. When I ask try to download updates I'm told that the service is not running and that I should restart my computer. This never works, however. I have tried several "fixes" from the Microsoft site but have had no success.

Any ideas?

Thankyou.
