Problem updating windows 7 sp1 - Online sex

Now, when I try to check manually for Windows Updates it just hangs on the Checking for updates screen.

Neither magicandre1981 nor Moab's answers assisted me.You can download the update from the Windows Update catalog (currently only usable with IE) and manually install the MSU (again, stop the Windows Update service before doing a double click on the MSU) to have a Windows 7 which is up to date. I had to restart Windows and then run this update's installer right away, to avoid the still-running "Check for Updates" taking so long that this update would take a very long time to install.Now try to check on for new updates in Windows Update and it should be faster because have a much newer update base and Windows Update should detect the missing updates easier. The speedup can be improved if you install the Security Update for Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers (win32k.sys) if such an update is released at the current patchday. Download the update (32Bit, 64Bit), stop again Windows Update service, install the KB3161664 MSU and make a reboot. If this is still not helping to search for new updates, use WSUSOffline to get all the updates. After that, Windows Update took something like 5 minutes to find 150 updates right after SP1 install, on a 1.3 GHz / 3 GB memory laptop, which is pretty good. This update includes Windows Update support for Windows 10 ...- i'm not sure anyone intentionally using windows 7 installation these times would want this feature This is what I do when I reinstall Windows 7 with SP1 or have issues with Windows update stuck on checking for updates.If Service Pack 1 is not installed, install it before following this guide.After following both procedures (on a virtualbox I reset back to the same snapshot) I still had the hung update search. I have no idea what update got everything sorted out but using this sledge hammer I was able to get a bunch downloaded and installed.

Then did a normal windows update and it had another ~30 and I was all up to date again :) Microsoft released a new Windows Update Client Update to fix the slow Update searching/installation problem: Installing and searching for updates is slow and high CPU usage occurs in Windows 7 Microsoft released a newer version: version from March 2016. Microsoft released a newer version: version from June 2016, which is part of the July 2016 Update Rollup.

On May 17th 2016 Microsoft released a new large Update Rollup, called Convenience rollup update, for Windows 7 SP1.

This rollup package includes almost all the updates that were released after the release of SP1 for Windows 7 through April 2016.

Choose for 32bit W7 Download KB-3138612 and save it where you can find it later Download SUR Tool save it to same place Restart the PC and disconnect from internet before Windows loads, this is important because at every boot windows will check for updates in the background and this will start the checking for updates hang all over again and will prevent the install of the downloaded packages until it finishes checking, so disconnecting from the internet before Windows loads prevents this.

Once booted install KB-3138612, if reboot is required do so and stay disconnected from internet.

Now install the SUR Tool package, this is a big package and will install many updates along with cleaning up and repairing the Windows update store.
