Windows 7 home sp1 updates

I have a client that was running a Windows 7 Home PC, we had to recover the O.S. from factory restore
After the restore I'm trying to update Windows, it's running Internet Explorer 8 and I also installed Chrome to try and get all the updates
the last item that successfully installed ware the following: please see attached
 I'm trying to install Windows6.1-KB3050265-x64 and all I get is "Windows Update Standalone Installer Searching for updates on this computer" it's been running for a couple of hours now. All these updates happened yesterday 9/25/2016

It would not be unusual for it to take 24 hours to complete the first batch of updates if SP1 is installed.

Got through my article below, it shows how updates install fastest after a fresh windows 7 installation:

thanks for the response, the Convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1 I've tried before; lot's of wasted time. I'll keep searching for a solution
thanks

You need to update to IE 11 before you can do the update.

First always make sure you have at SP1 installed. That is required
download it here :  https://www.microsoft.com/nl-NL/download/details.aspx?id=5842

if needed, install also IE11    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/18520/download-internet-explorer-11-offline-installer
Install the newer version of the Windows Update Agent:

I'm not recommending the convenience rollup, as you can read in my Article (That's "Method 2" in the Article), It hasn't worked well most of the time I tried it. But if you read the Article, it is "Method 1" which I recommend, and that works very well. All you need to do is first make sure you have SP1 installed. Then install the newer version of the update agent, and then the KB3102810 and reboot. After that you can run your updates at a normal speed.

1. Stop the install
2, Restart computer
3. Run updates from IE only
