Windows 7: windows update stuck at 0%

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 

I have this problem as well. Win 7 Home Premium x64.

So I should delete all the files and folders in SoftwareDistribution? I have 1 gb of files and folders in there. I think I'll copy them first, just in case.

i have tried this nine or ten times and it still is not working goddamnit. it keeps redownloading the files, as evidenced by more files showing up in the Download folder, but according to the WU window, it is at 0KB and 0%. I've stopped the service many times, i have deleted all the files many times. I have deleted the contents of DataStore many times. I have tried the Windows Fixit many times. I have rebooted many times. and still every time it just redownloads the files into the folder, and tells me it is 0% complete, indefinitely, without installing anything. What the absolute f%^$%$

Please start a NEW thread of your own, and
1) post your C:\Windows\windowsupdate.log file
2) Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
