for about a year windows update hasn't worked (unable to fetch new updates / unable to download updates stuck at 0%) surprised I've survived this long and I've done my due diligence of trying to solve this issue on my own following more than a few guides to no avail so im coming here to get help from people who know what they're doing
ill try an post what information i think is relevant
The issue:  windows update hasn't (worked unable to fetch new updates / unable to download updates stuck at 0%)
windows update trouble shooter results: first pic
Update history: second pic surprisingly i managed to download 2 updates

unsure if this will be enough information, if not  just ask for whatever else you need
thanks ahead of time for any help

If that isn't successful, I now download each monthly update package and install it manually on a few computers.

I directed a client experiencing this problem to this site:

Windows 7 Update stuck on "Checking for updates..."

and they successfully resolved the issue.

 

Make sure you create a restore point, the wizard gives you the opportunity to do this before it repairs windows update.

Thanks a lot for the help everyone, i decided to try the "Windows 7 Update stuck on "Checking for updates..." first since it seemed like the quicker of the two and that solved the issue pretty painlessly
I'm regretting taking this long to get help for this since it was such a quick fix

Good result! Keep an eye on it, Windows 7 auto updates developed a habit of being broken again by later updates.

Coolest thread ever. I have to remember this fix for the next time I need it.
