Windows Update don't work anymore since Dec 16 ?

Hello, I have a problem that I'm trying to fix...since 1 month. My first language is french so I decided to post my question on a French Tech Forum and nobody can help me... if you want to take a look what they ask me to do :

Probleme de MaJ avec Win 7 ??? - MicroClick-Québec.ca

I attached a JPG and you can see which last update that is installed. Suddenly stop after December 16 ?!

I check this forum and try this :

For 64-bit Windows, the second line differs due to the location of the DLL file:
net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll
net start wuauserv



That didnt work.


I want to tell you guys that I have some BSOD sometime but I have BSOD before my Windows Update problem. We will try to fix my Windows Update problem and after we will try to fix the BSOD

I don't know where to start with you guys lol..

I have Win 7 Pro 64 bits, 8 gig RAM...

In my task bar I have the little flag with an "red x" on it... saying, I will try to translate from french to english "Windows could not search for automatic update (important)"

Thank you very very much for help !

Hello symetric, and Welcome to Sevenforums!

For windows update problems, you might try fixing common issues with these microsoft tools:
  1. Automatically diagnose and fix common problems with Windows Update
  2. Troubleshoot problems with installing updates - WindowsUpdate_dt000
  3. Windows Update - Reset
  4. Further reading: Support for Microsoft Update
And please follow this tutorial to post your BSOD problems here. You never know, they might be related (perhaps, though unlikely): https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

What error message do you get if you Check for Updates? - there are no failed installs, so you're either not detecting them, or not downloading them

perhaps there aren't any new updates? Do you get this?:

If you get something else, please attach the picture.

If windows update is set to automatic, it is likely that it downloads a lot of updates on its own.

Obviously, the problem is that the search for updates never complete - the last successful search was on 19th December

this thread looks interesting...
Windows Update Hangs while searching for updates - Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard 64 bit
Athough it's a Server install, I believe that it should apply to Client versions as well

I believe MSE can update itself, despite windows update. The other update you have highlighted is one of the tools I had you download, no?

Try using this tool: Download: System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) [August 2011] - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

What antivirus are you using? Computer viruses can mess with windows update. Here is a good thread for removing viruses: How to get rid of malware - Microsoft Answers

If you know what updates are causing the issue, try to uninstall them: Windows Update - Uninstall an Update

Did you try this download that I gave you?: Windows Update - Reset

Attempt to restart the computer after all of this.
