problem w windows update

i installed clean copy of win 7 explorer worked and could update explorer off explorer but when i click on Windows update it turns on i see red x looks like its working the bar moves from left to right but nothing else happens.

only idea i got is i have different ver of .net on the backup of drivers and i noticed i had .net 5.2.1 before the reinstall so when i went to install nvidia if said it needs .net first so i installed .net 5.2.(maybe thats the prob other ther then that i have no idea)

installing win 7 x64 home premium on z97 extreme 6, have one ssd primary for win install one partitions and one reg raptor
thx

You are lucky :-)

The search time has varied drastically these past few months.

Intentional Microsoft delay perhaps, trying to force people to Windows 10?
