    I am running Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit on an x64-based processor. Version 1909, OS build 18363.592.


    I launched Check for Updates and it keeps checking and checking and checking. It has been searching for days does not stop! How do I stop the current search and then re enable the Check for Updates function?

    :)

    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'.

    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
