All i can do is give you a list of updates that I have not installed or else have removed.

You said you fixed the problem by reverting back to the older Windows Update Client. How did you do that, which update have you uninstalled? I'm not sure how safe is that but am curious. Thank you.

Problem with getting any updates

If you are going to attempt any changes like that you really need to create a system image backup first.

What's the deal with this?!
You may try Windows Update Notifier if it helps. It's portable so runs without installation. I've tried it and set it not to start with windows. It runs an update check and notifies when updates are available.

Thank you but I don't want a 3rd party tool for Windows update. I guess I'll be checking manually every month. Lame Microsoft, lame.

Well the idea was just to test it to see if it gave any notifications!
