    Hello all,

    I recently noticed that my processor is always busy at around 25%. It turns out that it's windows update which does not work. It continualy seeks for update but can't find any. So far, tried:

    - Install KB3102810 but it was already installed.
    - Run the tool "Windows Update Diagnostic". It found some errors, corrected them (except one: "0x80070057(2016-09-16-T-07_51_58)). Anyway, the problem is still present.
    - Disable antivirus (Avast) and even Windows defender but to no avail.

    For the moment, I've disabled the windows update service but, of course, it's not a solution.

    Any tips will be appreciated...

    PS: the OS is Windows 7 ultimate x64.

    Thanks to all people who tried to help me.

    I began by Ace2's recommendations. I installed KB3050265 (as I said in my first post, KB3102810 is already in my system). I rebooted and ran Windows update, left it 30 min but no change.


    Then, I put KB3172605 as locob's link suggested. And it worked. After a couple of minutes, there were 11 updates.

    Thanks again. :)
