Windows 7 stuck on Checking updates

Hello,

yesterday I made a format of my second PC and I installed Win7 Ultimate x64 again. Now I have a problem with updates. For about 5-6 hours I see only "Checking for updates". Can anybody help me with that?

My 2nd computer is really old
Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66GHz
Gigabyte EP45-DS3R
4GB RAM Kingston
ATI Sapphire HD5850 512MB

All I need is to create DLNA from old computer to watching movies on TV.
Thank you very much
