    Cannot check windows updates history.

    When I cick on update and security then update history it just flashes and nothing. Any solutions to this this issue would be most grateful.

    Well if SoftwareDistribution folder was corrupted, this might be the cause.

    Check component's store corruption, run CMD as admin and copy:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

    If it reports errors, run:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    If it says, no components store corruption, run:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

    and it would not hurt to run disk cleanup:

    cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

    Additionally cleaning SoftwareDistribution's Download folder only:

    net stop bits /y
    net stop cryptSvc /y
    net stop UsoSvc /y
    net stop winmgmt /y
    winmgmt /salvagerepository
    taskkill /im TiWorker.exe /f
    net stop wuauserv /y
    rmdir "%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Download" /s /q
    del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr0.dat"
    del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr1.dat"
