OS is Win 7 x64.

"Out of the blue", I cannot see anything on the Windows Update page. I changed icons with the Tango Patcher about 2 weeks ago, but all was fine until yesterday. See .gif and pic to understand better.

I did so. Even booted in Safe Mode.

Try and find the error number in event viewer. That usually helps track down the issue.

Sounds like the Windows Update components have been corrupted and might need to be re-registered. Usually it's spyware that would do that, but if you say it's just happened out of the blue (and you've had no other side effects), it's hard to see why that's the case.

Have you tried running System File Checker?

Also make sure the windows update service isn't disabled in Services.msc.

I thought that maybe I could find a solution before running sfc /scannow. :D That is my last resort, as customized stuff will go down the drain if I do.

Malware is out of the question, I scan 2 times/day with Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware, I'll just check the error number, that is the thing that I didn't think of. Thanks everyone. :)

You can scan specific files rather than the entire system with sfc, or just run a check and not a repair etc

Some examples here

SFC solved nothing. The service is running and shows [url="http://i.imgur.com/aR5vp.png"]this[/url] instead of proper important/less important updates.
System Restore is off, I use Acronis (full backup of the C Drive), unfortunately the backup made 2 days ago has this bug in it.

EDIT: I'll remove the Icon Pack as last solution. If it fails, I need a new Windows install.
