Uverse messed up Windows 7 Updates

I just installed Windows 7 on my wife's computer last weekend and had a hard time getting the updates to work. I searched and tried several things that didn't work, finally I left it on all night last night, got up and it looked like nothing had happened. I closed the updates box and a little later went back to the pc and there was a message saying there were 255 updates, I was ecstatic! I started them up, looked over and they were at 37%, so I went back to my pc. All of a sudden my web pages won't load, I look at my Uverse modem and it is rebooting for some reason, I went back to my wife's pc and it wasn't doing anything. I closed the updates box and tried to restart it, but nothing... I even left it on for a couple hours and nothing. I checked the Software Distribution folder and it showed there was over 5 gigabytes of updates in it, but I still can't get it to work.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Sounds like you reinstalled ?
When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.

Make sure KB3020369 is installed if not manually install it,
Win-7 32 bit
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=46827
Win-7 64 bit
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=46817

Then manually install KB3172605
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3172605
Win-7 32 bit,
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=53335
Win-7 64 bit,
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=53332

After switch your windows update settings back to what you had prior and manually check for updates and the rest should show up shortly.

You are not alone it appears that MS servers have been rejecting connections when people are trying to download updates for windows 7. I can watch my ATT DSL modem's internet light turn red as I have tried to download updates for 7. It doesn't happen with ANY other servers ONLY MS update servers.
