Hi.

I just did a clean reinstall of windows 7 on my hp laptop. But now i cant download the updates. I have sp 1 installed but now when i check for updates it just hangs for hours. I have looked around and found that this is not an uncommon problem. Unfortunatelly there seem to be dozens of half solutions and im not sure what to do. I would like to avoid going online with a years outdated version of IE to manually download files the people suggest but that may not be possible.

If anyone has a way to fix this i would be gratefull, thanks.

Part of the problem is MS didn't release a new SP after 1 and you have to do a bunch of updates that I've heard some people say takes over a day.

Yeah I had a bunch of computers at work I had to reinstall the windows 7 OS with SP1 on it and after the inital updates it took hours for them to find the 200+ updates they needed but they eventually got there.

Many people leave their computer running overnight and most of the time the updates are found by morning but this has been a big issue for awhile now .

 

When i reinstalled it took 14 hours to find all of them , terrible .  Set your computer to not "sleep, hibernate/shutdown".
