Windows Update - Windows 7
Posted on 2016-08-19
Fresh install of Windows 7. Old disk died with bad sectors and was not bootable. New 3GB HD installed and windows installation complete. Windows update not working... continually states checking for updates. Have waited for periods of over 20 hours for download. I have done this before and KNOW there are about 200 updates to be done on this version that i Have installed so, a reasonable amount of time was waited with NO progress.
Cleared the cache and tried again. Nada. Checked for running services all ok. Came here and searched for answers. Found a link to WSUS offline update and performed that. Downloaded 200 or more files for update. GREAT!! Went to install and now, it seems to be stuck on the very first one.
KB3020369-x64 has been sitting on my screen for over an hour. disk activity is low according to the light on the PC.
Any suggestions to get this up and running would be wonderful!
WHY doesn't M/S put a counter on the windows update screen... Found x files. etc. JUST to let us know that it is actually doing something!?? Stupid progress bar moving across the screen is NOT enough.
