    I have a laptop not overheating new tested hard drive and tested ram

    clean install windows 7 and it is just taking forever HOURS "checking updates" but it did eventually get there once

    I dunno what this is if it is one of the buses or the board in general or what

    how would any of this happen on a clean install?

    This problem may occur if one or more of the following conditions are true:

    The Windows Update database is corrupted.
    Antivirus software is configured to scan the %Windir%\SoftwareDistribution folder.
    The Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) service does not receive a content link header.
    A required system file is registered incorrectly.
    Windows Installer encountered an error.
    The Component Based Servicing (CBS) manifest is corrupted.
    The Windows Update service stops during the installation process.
    There's a file version conflict with Windows Update agent files.

    also it's dual core and the update service is using 50% with 1.2 gigabytes of ram.

    Hardly you'll be able to find out!

    After a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1 already attached, the updates were need more than 10h in total for Windows 7 and Office 2013 Proff. Pro a few days ago on an Laptop with i3 Dual 8 GB Ram. And so it were all times after windows 10 were released some few month ago!

    Just give that time and it will be done sometimes!!

    I would just let them run all at once (twice, ......!) because it's the fastest way! On the end of the day, it's just up to you which way you go! Good luck!

    Just done a fresh install last weekend wit the same problem. Install of IE 11 from the MS site. Look for a Knowledge Base fix for Windows Update High CPU Use in MS Support. Soon found the updates (all 170+ !!!!)

    OR

    Use the Simplex pack from the Stickies above

    I dispo'ed it with instructions to leave it plugged in

    I changed the power options so it stays on while plugged in to allow for updates

    hopefully I don't get a call back, most of them were done anyway.

    check fans, thermal re-paste. If cpu is <15% @ idle its probably not a virus.
