Windows 7 updates not working

Spent a lot of time looking for a solution to "checking for updates" after a new install of windows 7. Previously when I did a new install, it took 38 hours before it started to download. Too long!
I followed the instructions provided by "majulook" on 14th September 2016 and it only took five minutes to find over a hundred updates to download. Can't thank the guy enough..
