I've just completed a Windows 7 Professional re install & everything seemed to go ok , but it won't pull in any Windows Updates
I've tried the various Fixit tools with no success.
When doing a check for updates I get "Windows could not search for new updates -error code 8007000E"
Be grateful for any help on this

This is a known problem on a fresh install. If the Install is not SP1 then download and install the standalone here.

 

Install IE11 as that is required for Security Updates

 

If that fails then install the latest Windows Update Agent.  On a fresh install it may take up to two hours to initiate an update.

 

Some people have had to wait overnight before getting updates. Something has changed on the Windows Update side and it seems priority is being given to Windows 8 and 10.

SP1 & IE11 already installed .

I've just installed the latest update agent but it's still the same I'm afraid

It only scans for about a minute before the error appears.

Just leaving this here...

These errors can happen if your computer runs out of memory while installing an update.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows7/windows-update-error-80070008-or-8007000e

There is a new update to the Windows Update Client available that includes the following fixes:

- This update addresses an issue in which the Windows Update Client displays an out-of-memory error during the scan operation (0x8007000E) on systems that have small amounts of physical RAM.

This update addresses an issue in which Windows Update scans can fail and generate a 0x8007000E error.

Try this:

 

Windows 7 faster Updates from new install-
 
The latest Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 relies on a previous update - KB3102810. That Update doesn't exist on the original Windows 7 SP1 ISO. You need to manually install this update AFTER Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 has installed but after the new update agent has restarted/running - don't let it run forever, restart the machine, then on startup - download and install KB3192810 directly from MS, then re-run Windows Update.

I installed KB3050265 & left it scanning for updates , but as yet no updates have appeared.

I'll try putting KB3102810 on & see what happens
