My Windows Update wont check for updates

I have waited 6 hours straight and still my Windows Update hasnt found any updates
It just says "Checking for Updates"
Is there any way to force it to find updates or something? Im so desperate.

If your system is in the (Checking for Updates) stage you can reboot and try again.
Some times this will help. You might get lucky and find another Microsoft server that isn't so busy. The restart will take a little longer while the system shuts down the update search.

If it doesn't help it's just a waiting game. Just let Update search for what ever time it takes.
Leave your computer on. No sleep or hibernation.

When was the last time you have got Windows 7 Updates?
