Windows 7: Windows Update doesnt search for updates

Windows Update doesnt search for updates

Hi there,

i have a really weird problem on my 7 here. Windows does not look for updates from time to time as it should. The settings for WU are correct, in fact, i tried all of them with no change in behaviour.
When i start a manual search everything is fine, finding and installing updates works like a charme. Nothing special in my windows logs, the whole systems runs just fine.

Anything i could do?

Well, after microsofts last patchday and a successful installation of all those, windows searches for updates again. Just to let you know.
