Windows 7 Updates (service not running error)

Today, I brought back up an old machine of mine running windows 7.  It had been a good 6 months since I've last used it, so naturally, windows updates was not working.

I managed to find a nice thread on social.technet:

stop Windows Update Service

delete C:\windows\softwaredistribution\*.*

start Windows Update Service

check for updates

Hope this helps if you run into the same issue.
