Windows updater never stops checking for updates?

When I go to check for update windows updater gets stuck on an endless loop while checking. I have let it check for "hours" but it doesn't stop nor does it find any updates, I always have to use task manager to get it to stop. Any ideas on what could be the problem?

Hello!

Sorry for the delay!

Please run this tool in Aggressive Mode: How do I reset Windows Update components?

Then please run this tool: Repair & Fix Windows Updates with Fix WU Utility | The Windows Club

Does the problem still exist? Let's hope not! Otherwise I might need to take some log files!
