Windows Update keeps your system up to date with the latest updates from Microsoft which include important security updates, fixes, and changes. But if the feature disables itself, you won't know if there are more recent updates available. Many users have encountered this problem and are receiving warnings about disabling Windows Update.

However, when you turn it on manually, it updates the system normally. But it can go out again, which is a problem. This can happen due to a corrupted file in the Windows update itself or due to incompatibility issues with any third party antivirus program installed on the system. Whatever the cause, you don't want it to interrupt the normal update process and so we have a solution for you. Let's see what the solution is.
