[SOLVED] Windows Update remains at “Checking For Updates” forever…



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.

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