Windows 7: 7 Pro Fresh Install - Windows Update fails - WSUS hangs

16 Sep 2016   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
7 Pro Fresh Install - Windows Update fails - WSUS hangs

I have been able to download the updates with WSUS, however, I am stuck on 'Listing IDs of missing updates'.
Malwarebytes and Spybot are the only programs on here at this time that are even close to seeing something viral. Cryptoprevent was not causing a problem to my knowledge.

I stopped giving windows and WSUS time after 14 hours of no discernible improvement. I even made the automated ISO and tried installing from there.
The Internet works with everything else that's stock in Windows. I updated to IE 11. Lenovo needed .NET framework 4.0 and their driver updater worked great.

I don't have the original Lenovo Discs. They think I am going to buy them again. M$, of course, won't give me a clean ISO due to OEM status. I found the ISO another way.

Is there a specific KB that can update Windows Update?
I can't even get the .msu to install from this thread windows 7 update stuck at "checking for updates..."

3050265 was the KB... Thanks Everyone!

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
You can get installation media with this for free and yes it does get the iso from Micro... servers

It's a lot easier to clean install these days with the unofficial sp2
There are essentially 3 updates needed for a clean install of windows that will get you updated through April of 2016

KB3020369 & KB3125574 & KB3172605 all can be downloaded from the catalog using internet explorer
Microsoft Update Catalog
When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.

After restart you will need to ensure the built in windows update service is stopped and set to manual first too or it will conflict with the stand alone installer.

Afterwards reset the windows updates service to what it was before and update settings to your preference and check for updates
Should be only 50 or so updates left to install.

Or you can get all three updates off my OneDrive!AsjD7o6P3KLKj2TjShn8-SumV1rr

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Just completed another hard drive replacement in a laptop. That makes four in the last six months. Two Toshiba, and two Acer. All four had Toshiba hard drives. All four between three and four years old with Win7.
The first two weren't too bad. These last two I had to manually install six updates before the updater would work. I checked it out after each update/reboot.

First one was KB3102810 After I downloaded it, it would not install until I turned the Win Update Service back on. The rest I left it turned off except to test the auto updater.
The rest of the KB's: 3050265, 3145739, 3020369, 3125574, 3172605.

After the last one was in, 57 updates were in within ten minutes. They are installing now.

This forum has been great. Lots of info on lots of issues. Big thanks to TRASHZONE, always a great source of good info.
