Windows 7: My laptop is having issues with Windows Updates..

10 Feb 2013   #21

x64 (6.3.9600) Win8.1 Pro & soon dual boot x64 (6.1.7601) Win7_SP1 HomePrem

Please accept my apologies if I cast doubt on finding a solution to the issue. As I said, Noel has far more experience in this, and many other areas, than I have.

It seems as though WU is updating ok - sometmes it just takes WU a 2nd try to resolve, as you mentioned here:

Tuesday might have some updates (normal shedule) or it might not. Post what you observe.
If there is a problem, if being the operative word, Noel is the best resource to resolve it.
