i was indeed one of those advised to troubleshoot and download and run various tools. After you informed me of the problem I returned to that section in Win7 forums to point out that a large number of the new threads were about this issue and I suggested they create a Sticky about the problem or, at the very least, suggest people just hang on a few days before doing anything else. I was told they were fully aware of the issue and the section is busy enough without me moaning. Of course, the reason it's so busy is because they're not informing people about this issue. For instance I spent much of yesterday manually downloading individual updates which of course could have been avoided if I'd been properly informed at Win7 forums.
Anyway herbman, thanks to you at least everyone here reading this thread is aware of the issue.
I can't even paste correctly
Well , i am not one of the many outstanding and knowledgeable helpers here at BC , my computer knowledge is mediocre at best , actually mediocre is too good , lets go with poor to awful lol.
I am usually the one always asking for assistance from the knowledgeable folks here , i think your absolutely correct about it being a "sticky" on various forums until this issue seems to alleviate itself , if it ever does.
If a user is not getting a constant " windows cannot search for updates" message just leave it alone and wait it out.
Thank you Sir for your kind complements , best wishes.
