Windows Update on 8.1 64 bit - Updates were installed: never
Posted on 2016-11-17
I am configuring a brand new ASUS UltraBook for a client.
Out of the box it has Windows 8.1 Pro, it is activated.
It works well as it is and I have installed applications, drivers etc - but I can't get it to find any Windows updates. I have disabled the power management and left it checking for updates all night - no joy. It still tells me that I have never checked for updates.
ASUS support tell me to reset to factory and start again - but that will void all the work I have done on it.
I have tried removing the SoftwareDownload directory, ran the troubleshooter, flushed the DNS cache.
Any further ideas?
