I just installed that hotfix posted by Snowbound with no issues. Right afterwards I had the laptop check for updates manually & looks like the fun/nightmare will continue. I will try the DNS change & will continue the fight. Thanks god this is not my main Laptop.

Update:

Just started PC to stop WU loop from constantly searching & received a message during startup in reference to the registry with code 107 for system cure. I've seen this message before.

Then reboot one more time. You should see the bunch of updates right away as soon as you check for updates.
You might as well use the one that came out today :-)

In my case applying this update did NOT fix the problem as I indicated earlier. The download links on the linked page do not currently work.

Hmmm, the download links do not work for me either :-(

I was able to apply that update via Windows Update (WU) on two computers today.

There have been several threads about WU constantly looking for updates. Sometimes, setting the computer not to sleep and leaving WU running/searching overnight gets a list. If that does not fix things, then follow these posting instructions:

Windows Update Posting Instructions

It is best for each member with a problem to have their own thread.

I'll give it it a try since I've got nothing to loose. However while the link above works to get me to the page the download links for the manual installer do not work. I need the x86 installer for this laptop. The MS Gods are against me.

Yes - the links are broken :-(

Do another "System Recovery to bring back the laptop to it's original start day."
Install SP1.
Check for updates.
Let that first check install Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320.
It should automatically start searching for more updates.
Set the laptop not to sleep and leave it alone overnight*.
At least 10 to 12 hours - the update servers are busy.

If that still fails, please provide the info requested in post #14.

I can give that a try but I'm pretty sure I have tried to install SP1 right after a system recovery a couple of times already & it would not install it till I installed a bunch of other updates first including a bunch of .Net frameworks. In fact I just experience this recently on my last system recovery.

Also I understand your point about the servers being busy. But I have 4 other PC's that I can set to scan for updates at the same time as my trouble laptop & they all complete their checks for updates in a timely manner while this laptop just runs constantly without ever stopping to give me any results or errors.

Also why can't I follow the instructions on the other link now without having to do another system recovery?
I looked at the link & I have run some of those tools already but I have not followed all those steps. Can I bypass another system recovery & start following the instructions on that link now?

I have seen the same thing re: some computers fast, some take hours. I've just seen the overnight thing work.

You can skip doing another system recovery and just post the files requested - but there is only one member in this forum that works with these files. It might take a while for him to get to you.

No problem since this is not my main Desktop or Laptop. I'll do a restart right now to stop the checking for updates & will get to work.

Thanks.

OK here you go. I had to do a system restore to the point right after I installed SP1 to get the system update readiness tool to work. Before I did this it just sat there for about an hour. Hope I didn't ruin the results.

Also I performed sfc /scannow on an elevated prompt before & after the system restore & neither one found anything. I'm attaching the zip file.
