Recently over the last couple months I have had problems that the machines will not download updates, I have two or three like this matter of fact I have a HP Desktop on the bench now. New Windows 7 install, 800 plus HD, 8 Ram runs good other than when I go to check for updates it searches for hours and no updates down load, Any ideas, I have check for Virus, Malware, change setting to auto download updates and set a certain time. Still no updates.

It can take a considerable time, just leave your computer running - overnight if necessary - and they will enventually turn up. As an alternative, have a look at this web-site and follow the advice there. I think JohnC_21 deserves the credit for finding this one -
