    I suppose it might work, but it is stuck on the "Searching for updates on this computer…" screen. Can't win 'em all I guess, thanks anyway.

    I was discouraged because it had been sitting for about three hours, but I let it sit just a bit longer and it worked. Thank you!

    Can you help me please? I tried the method you write here, but im stuck on the "Searching for updates on this computer…" screen. I read that it takes time so ilet it search for ALL the night. The night is over, it ran for more then 6 hours and still nothing 🙁
    What could be the problem? I did everyting like you said in the video.
    Thanks for your time.

    For all you guys who are stuck on the "Searching for updates on this computer." window:

    REBOOT and run the downloaded file again. Worked for me. 🙂

    Thank you it worked! Still took like 3 – 4 hours for Windows Update to find all of the updates from a freshly installed computer with W7; but it worked.


    Ok, i downloaded the file, it says that i already have this update, so i delete this update, i reboot PC, then i install update, then i reboot PC again, now it's searching/checking for updates, it's been 5 min. or little longer and it's still searching. So read some comments below, and i see that i must leave it for at least 4h to finish this. I tried all and nothing worked so far, so i hope that your thing will do it, or i must reinstall Win. 7.

    For those this does not work for, here is the fix; W7.

    Download the Following patches manually: If some are already installed, you may need to uninstall them. Especially 445 & 605







    KB3020369 – this was already on my box but okay


    Save them someplace without installing. Stop 'Windows Update' in 'Systems'. Disable internet connection. Install them one at a time in the order listed restarting when prompted. After each install ensure the Windows Update is still stopped & after each restart – also make sure still disconnected from internet.

    After final install – restart; Start Windows Update again. Then check for updates. Mine found 55 important updates in under 2 minutes. (I think 265 above blocks Windows 10)

    Just downloaded your link, ran the update tool, found missing file, rebooted ran windows updates and now i have 160 updates that i suppose will have updates to them. So a big thanks as i now can use my new windows 7 PC. Cheers

    Downloaded the program, but before it installs, the computer begins to check for updates and prevents the program from installing. The very thing I'm trying to fix is preventing a fix.

    Nothing works for me. I'm running windows 7 home premium but I've tried fixing my update problem using every possible method, & I end up having the same results. I can run command prompt in my  sleep & nothing would work

    I have now used this twice on my two PCs after a reinstall of windows 7 and they work 100% thank you very very much.
