I have been building PCs for years now, and have noticed over the last maybe year, anytime I load Windows 7 Pro 64 bit from scratch, load motherboard drivers, then try to do Windows Updates, the initial Windows update takes 2-3 days to even show me what updates I need. I have heard this is Microsoft's way of telling people they need to be on Win 10. After the initial update has been installed, the rest of the updates run pretty quickly. I have tried first updating IE and .net, but that made no difference. Anybody know of any tricks to get this to go faster?
thx experts...
