Windows 7: Stuck on Windows Update again

I would ask why you`re even using a laptop, but then I would get yelled at for asking a totally normal question

I suppose your employer gave it to you ?

But anyway, a fan on a laptop will always spin faster when needed to, as far as why your PC still checks for updates when you have it set to never check is a mystery.

I'll look into that. I'm still undecided really, it might be better in long run to just bite the bulletin. Too busy with project thing at the moment. I need things to just work.

I've been lurking this thread and got curious.

I disabled the Windows Update service, by default it is set to Automatic (Delayed Start).

Now when i open Windows Update and click Check for updates i see the screen print below.
I'm not suggesting anyone should do this, it will have security implications if some updates are not installed.
I just wanted to see what would happen if i disabled the service.

My 7 VM took about 5 hours or so to check for downloads. I just cancelled the actual download after it spent 4 hours "stuck" at 0kb total, 0% complete. I've had this problem for the past 2 months however it hasn't taken this long previously. I don't know what M$ has done but patch tuesday has become a pain in the ***. Strangely enough I don't have these problems with my 2008 VMs which is something I don't get. On the other forum I did read about an update to install manually on Vista and that greatly reduced check time. I suppose that I'll leave it running all night and see if it finishes.

Yep, my 17 updates this past Tuesday took an hour to find and then another hour to download and install.

But that only happens on Tuesdays, any other time it`s fine, I guess because it only finds MSE updates.

Yep installing this one manually seems to expedite the search quite a bit

That was the kb for Vista. I wasn't sure if there was also one for 7. Updates took 5 hours to install last night but they did install.

Noisy fan again!

Normally it fixes itself after the updates finally come through. But this time it's not going away, and it's doing my head in!

I checked updates, after installing Win 10 on the last day and then reverting back to Win 7 after it turned out to be a total bug farce.

Now, it's apparently still trying to make me upgrade to Win 10! And.. is that what is causing my fan to do constant hairdryer impressions again?

There are things you can download to make your fan die down, but I'm not sure I want to risk it in case my CPU overheats. It's an 8 core intel i7, so the reason it started getting noisy is likely a series of neverending windows updates that have, again, screwed up my system.

I tried this and my fan has settled down again.

Windows update stuck on 0%
Just as the title says. It is stuck on 0%. I waited for 30 minutes but no changes. Except for totally random BSOD caused by ntoskrnl.exe (SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED). One thing which I noticed was that it still wanted me to install updates while shutting down my computer.
