Hey guys,

 

  I am having windows update problems, like lots of other people on here. I have read most of the other posts and nothing I have come across has helped. It says searching for updates. I left it overnight last night and it did say I needed 78 updates but they failed at 100%. When I go into history now it shows no update history.

 

Every time I turn off my PC I get stuck in a very long update, fail, and revert loop. (15-20 min)

 

I have no idea what else to try. 

"fix it"= same results

-firewall/virus scan off/deleted= same results

-different internet connection= same results

-wsus offline updater= gave me an error message telling me it couldn't work

delete/rename files= same result

removed all virus scans= same results

 

any help would be great.

You could try installing the latest update agent which is what worked for me today.

 

See http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/611489/win-7-updates-not-happening-svchost-using-30-cpu-fan-in-overdrive/

 

There are a number of other things to try in that thread too.

Best of luck.

 I feel like I am on the right track but not windows will tell me I have 76 updates to download. When I restarted my computer it will hang at 98% and fail and revert back. This whole process takes about an hour. I have removed all virus protection and even tried with a clean boot. no luck. Any suggestions?

 You have to break it up by deselecting about half of those, then installing, then rebooting, then reinstalling the rest.  It's a pain in the posterior, but that's what you have to do.  If you do that, it works.  I just went through it a few weeks with 114 updates.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

well, I went to try this but there is only 9 optional and 1 important download. But when I go into history there are 76 fails. When I try to select these it trys to do all of them. It will not give me the option to not install the other 76.

Failed Updates are just "notices" when you check for installed Updates.

 

If you scroll higher you will see they may have been installed at a later time.

 

Optional are not required unless you think you really need it.

1 Important - I would download.

 

When all done and you recheck for updates - you should be up to date eg: No Updates Available.

ok well I think I have made progress, I decided to manually download each update. I had limited success then I tried to download KB2685811. Then I remembered a post I had with this computer. 

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/478107/pulling-my-hair-out-with-8007007e-error/ 

 

I guess this problem was never solved for a 32 bit PC. The error went away and I it popped back up.

 

any suggestions?

 

win 7 pro SP1 32 bit

 There's a composite update that just came out last week with all the Windows 7 updates from SP1 through April 2016.  It's KB3125574 here: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=windows%207%20update .  The 32 bit version is about 316 MB and the 64 bit one is about 475 MB.

 

 Good luck.
