    why don't you read existing threads? there are lots of threads with this thing on this forum's first page. if every windows 7 users opens the same thread, this forum will turn into trash. :death:

    I have no WU issues on 7 overhere, maybe you can shutdown the windows update service at services.msc and then delete the folder called: "c:\windows\softwaredistribution", after it's deleted just start the windows update service again and the folder will be restored. Try WU again.

    .
    I checked for updates on two identical PCs that were updated a Day or two before a few Day ago. One found updates in a few minutes, the other I gave up and shut down after 3 Hours of trying.

    If I need to install IE11, I install Windows 8.1 instead Windows 7.
    The same OS, but improved.
