Windows 7: Windows Update trouble.

Windows Update trouble.

When I click check for updates it goes on and on. It never takes this long so I restart.
Restarting, etc. will not resolve this problem, it remains constant.

I think a recent update has led to this although when visiting installed updates... nothings there.

XP Pro - SP3

I'm having the same problem on two new machines - straight out of the box. All that I've set up is:

Static IP address
DNS Server address
Proxy Server
Added each machine to the workgroup

Note this is in a school, and the LEA requires these settings. Network is via ethernet. These are the first Windows 7 machines that the school has obtained, so nothing to compare with.

I can access the internet, with no problem. I can browse the network and see other machines, folders etc on the network. The only issue that I can see is as per the old thread "" where the network icon has the yellow triangle, and the message reports network connected, no internet.

I know that the LEA are VERY despotic in their control of the network.

Does the update process use any ports other than standard internet / proxy settings?
