Windows 7 sp1 "Checking for Updates" Hang

Windows 7 sp1 "Checking for Updates" Hang

Postby Ernie » Wed Dec 14, 2016 12:04 pm

DESCRIPTION:
Windows 7 users have reported that when they try to check for new updates using Windows Update, it keeps checking for updates for hours. The progress bar keeps showing progress animation which makes you think that Windows Update is doing something but even after waiting for hours, nothing happens. Windows Update just gets stuck at "Checking for updates" screen and Windows 7 doesn't download or install any updates.
