Windows 7: Windows updates on Win 7 not starting after days or even weeks

Hi!

I think I have the same problem - after a HD failure on a laptop, I have replaced the HD yesterday and reinstalled Win 7 64-bit. I was able to update the machine up to SP1, but from there I can only see the "Checking for updates..." now almost all the day. No errors are displayed.

On another computer with Win 7 32-bit I have tried by manually clicking on the command "Check for updates" and the same happens there - I can only see the "Checking for updates..." now for hours.

Surprisingly no problems with the update of a Win 8 machine - works as it it is supposed to work without any problems!

Perhaps it is something wrong with MS update servers for windows 7 ?

After 6-7 hours of "Checking for updates..." finally found new updates and successfully updated the system.

Still no luck with the fresh install of win 7 64-bit though...
