Windows 7: Whats going on with Windows 7 updates?

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Windows 7 updates constantly checking?

I'm currently trying to rebuild 2 completely different pc's at home with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Both build fine its only when getting to updates that things are becoming frustrating.

After checking for updates they are both prompted to install the initial 'Update Agent' and then updates closes and re-opens only to sit there forever checking for updates. I've since learnt that the update agent is version 7.6.7600.320 but have been unable to find a resolution to get any updates to show.

I've tried the fixit tool and reset of the windows update history etc etc but as I'm yet to actually download and install any updates I'm not quite sure what resetting the history will do.

Any help appreciated - as I've said its a completely new format and build with absolutely nothing installed yet

Apply this update. Fixed it for me. Was getting maxed out CPU core and tons of ram usage on SVCHost. Unable to update anything right now without it from my experience whether its a brand new PC or an old one. Still took 15 minutes or so to get the update list, but it works now.

Whats up with the updates?
Not sure if this is just me or if others are having the same/simular issue. But the last couple of updates have caused my pc to bluescreen. When it reboots after this it asks me if I want to restore to a previous setting. That goes ok and when it attempts to update the next time it appears to go...

I've been looking for solutions to this problem and lurking these, and other, forums for a while hoping for a magic bullet but VLC still has worse playback than WMP12. I don't mind for most things but some files are stubborn or need to be played in VLC, when this happens I lose out on quality. Has...
