    Win Update shows possible updates, but doesn't show them

    This is my first post, so I would like to use it to say Hi to you all.

    However I have a problem with my Win8.1. I can see possible updates in Windows Update, but I can see their names or check/uncheck them.
    Still I can install them and they normally get installed, but I would prefer to now what I install on my computer.

    I tried to "refresh" Windows Update by deleting SoftwareDistribution folder from C:/Windows, but that doesnt change anything, nor reboots helps.

    First time I found about it yesterday, coz I didnt updated my OS for sometime and thought that is time to do it.

    Maybe someone of You have any idea or had similar problem?

    Thanks in advance

    Got it. Using some magic in cmd (thanks to Microsoft Community) and restarting explorer.exe did it
