I've had the same problem on 3 different Window 7 machines after reinstalling Windows 7. I already tried all the fixes on here and nothing has worked. The machines keep searching, searching,... Microsoft Security Essential will update but that is about it. I've also done the "sfc /scannow", no bad or corrupt files. Did all the "regsvr32 wuaueng.dll", et al. No problems found. Did the MS "Mr Fix", no problems found. What the heck is going on with updates for Windows 7? I just decided to use Windows 7 like it is. If I get a virus I'll just have to run Hitman Pro and clean them out.
