    Hi, you could try this as a simple approach..
    Use's free cautious repair tool.

    Choose only relevant repairs e.g. 3,16,25

    Did you disable Windows update at some point? If so, how?
    If you did not, then there could be more significant problems.
    Which is your Windows build? (Windows key + R, winver)

    I think i disabled windows update by disabling the service, but i can't enable it back.

    My Windows is version 1709 build 16299.431

    Anyway, the app fixed it. Thanks you so much
