  1. Stuck on "Searching for updates" after update to 19042.572


    Hey,

    already posted in the mega thread, but I would like to get this sorted pretty soon.

    What I did was basically update to build 19042.572, everything worked fine, now after the reboot I wanted to check for updates again and the search takes forever.

    What I did so far:

    - net stop WUAUSERVER
    - net stop BITS
    - rename softwaredistribution folder
    - sfc /scannow
    - Windows Updates Troubleshooting



    Anything else I could try?

    Win10: windows update stuck at never ending loop ?

    When in win10:
    • Update&security -> Windows update -> Finding update... .... .... ....
    Planning to download the latest Win10.ISO (vers.1803) and manually update:
    - Then wait that my ordered new SSD arrives and clone the old HDD to it.

    FIXED!! Windows 7 sp1 never ends searching for updates

    Pros:
    • No need for a script, easy to apply manually
    • Much smaller download, seems that KB3020369 is not required, only SP1 is needed
    Cons:
    • Windows Update Client downloaded by the script is newer (June 2016 version is included in KB3172605 instead of March 2016)
    • You will still need to download/install hundreds of updates afterwards, most of them are already included in KB3125574 and installed by the script

    HyperSLI (Enabling SLI on non-sli motherboards)

    To turn off windows updates in windows 7 follow these steps:

    Click the start button, in the search box type in 'windows updates', click on 'windows update'
    in the search results list, in the left side of the windows update window click 'change settings'
    then in the option bar select 'Never check for updates'.
