    you have 2 methods to fix it, both require manual install of updates:

    1- temporary fix: install KB3161664

    2- official fix (not determined yet if temporary or permanent): install KB3020369, then KB3161608

    Thanks for all the replys,

    2- official fix (not determined yet if temporary or permanent): install KB3020369, then KB3161608

    That worked,

    Intergrating them plus the Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup

    [FONT=&quot]"[/FONT][FONT=&quot]It is better to light one small candle than to sit and curse the darkness". [/FONT][FONT=&quot] The way [/FONT]I see it, the simplix pack is “one small candle” as is any offline updater. But, if someone had rather sit and complain about “the darkness” (Windows 7 updates) then that’s fine with me.

    It internally does advance, it just doesn't show the progress. After a while, it tends to jump up by a huge percentage or even 100%.
