I know I'm not the only one here, but we have alot of issues with Windows 7 clients that are unable to search and/or install Windows Updates.
On the internet you'll find alot of fixes and work-arounds, but it keeps getting worse and worse.
It happens at more and more customers of us with different networks and anti-virus software.
What helped alot in the past is this :
1. Install this KB Hotfix - https://support.microsoft.com/nl-nl/kb/3102810
. This one is a known fix, but doesn't help anymore.
2. Stop the Windows Search service, go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistrib
ution and delete all the files. Reboot and search again for updates.
3. Install the latest Update for Windows Update : https://support.microsoft.com/nl-nl/kb/949104
4. Download the update readyness tool and let the tool search and fix.
Nothing seems to help anymore and we keep getting more calls and calls from companies and other people with help for the updates, but nothing seems to work anymore.
It looks like MS is trying to force everyone to upgrade to W10 or reinstall Windows 7 somehow ?
Any thoughts or other ideas that we missed?
Thank you in advance,
