Windows 7: Windows Update Keeps checking For updates forever

is there a file called Windowsupdate.log in c:\windows ?
If there is could you put it in a zip file and attach it with the paperclip icon above the reply box?

All this guesswork doesn't seem to be getting us anywhere, let's see if there are any errors or direct information we can look at on the subject.
That file shouldn't contain any personally identifiable information, but you are welcome to open it with notepad and check/edit before zipping.

That was a lot to scan over, but the most noticeable thing to me was right at the bottom there.
WARNING: WaitForServiceState failed

I'm wondering if there is a problem with your windows update service.
Have you tried updating through internet explorer, and is the result the same?

I have let it run overnight, and it still never finishes, I don't know what's causing it to never finish, everything else works fine "internet works", Everything else is working right except for the windows update never finishing checking for updates.
