Following a Clean Install Win7, Windows Update remains at "Checking For Updates" forever

Post by Edward572 » Sat May 21, 2016 11:30 pm

Once WU version 7.6.7600.320 is loaded, there is no easy recovery that I could find.

The following procedure was successful for me and I repeated it again just to be sure:

CleanInstall_Win7UpdatesBefore_Internet_x86.zip


CleanInstall_Win7UpdatesBefore_Internet_x64.Zip


    1. Download KB3083710 and KB3102810 in advance.
    2. Disconnect the computer from the Internet so Windows Update cannot automatically update itself to 7.6.7600.320.
    3. Perform a fresh reload from Recovery Media or Windows 7/64 with SP1 RTM.
    4. Manually install KB3083710 and restart - WU components will now be version 7.6.7601.19016 dated 9/25/2015.
    5. Manually install KB3102810 and restart - WU components will now be version 7.6.7601.19046 dated 10/20/2015.
    6. Restore the Internet connection and launch Windows Update as normal.

    After a few minutes, you should have plenty of updates to download and install.

This article describes the update that further improves the security of Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and the Windows Update Agent (WUA) on computers that are managed by WSUS. This update applies to the following:

[indent]Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2) on all applicable and supported platforms
Windows Server 2012 with the WSUS role enabled
Windows Server 2012 R2 with the WSUS role enabled[/indent]

NOTE This article describes an update that contains some improvements to Windows Update Client in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. This update is incompatible with Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) servers without the hardening update 2938066
