Hello all, These days we have been getting many problems with Windows updates issue's. Some had issue's with installation/un-installation and some of users are complaining that everytime they install and configure the updates and after the restart the number of updates getting increased everytime they do this task. I encountered a problem with Windows update in (Windows7 - Pro SP1),wherein there was only 1 update which was not getting installed and was completely grayed our that means we can't select/de-select the update.I have found a resolution and it worked for me very well and is applicable on all Windows operating systems (XP,Win Vista,7,8,8.1).Though we can't say this a permanent fix but still we can try this task to resolve many problems with Windows updates.Please review this suggestion and also suggest if anything is missing or required to make it more useful and helpful. Below are the following steps:- SoftwareDistribution: Start > Run > (type or copy/paste) services.msc > [OK] Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Stop (Stopping the service will take a moment) 2. Rename the Download folder: Start > Run > (type or copy/paste) %windir%\SoftwareDistribution > [OK] Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder In Windows Explo?e view, search for and locate the folder named "SoftwareDistribution". Right-click on the folder and select the 'Rename' option and change the name to: "SoftwareDistributionOld" Close the window. 3. Start the Automatic Updates service: Start > Run > (type or copy/paste) services.msc > [OK] Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Start (Starting the service will take a moment) Restart the computer
