Windows update finds several new updates, but it won't download them. It says it is downloading, but it never gets past 0%. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Common problem these days...

 

 

Download KB3172605.

 

Set Windows Update to "Never check for updates".

 

Restart the computer.

 

Click on the file you just downloaded (Windows6.1-KB3172605-x64.msu) to run the installation.

 

When done, you will be asked to restart the computer.

 

Re-enable Windows Update. Windows will start searching for updates. It may take a while before the downloads begin.
