Windows 7 Pro & Ultimate (64-Bit) Retail, Windows 8.1 Pro (64-Bit) Retail

Just reboot again and try checking again. Not sure why you're having problems with that update.

Ok it is now installed, and rebooted the machine and run wus, and got an error, code 80244019, ok after powering off the box and trying again it worked downloading 200+ updates
I have found that the newer KB3135445 after a new install of 7 will run for roughly 2 hours and then ask if you want to install. I then install it, takes a couple of minutes, go to Windows update and BAMM!!!, I now have 200+ updates to install. I then install all at once and all's well in the land of Oz. I used to get frustrated because it took so long and thought it was not working and found myself chasing a problem that does not exist. I finally let the new update client take its course and have not had any more update issues. I owe all the credit to UsernameIssues for he put me on the road to resolving update issues I had in the past.

W7 Pro SP1 64bit

You are welcome copiman.

Even if a process uses 11.5GB of RAM, the important question is:
Is the process locking that RAM so that no other app can have that RAM if it is requested?

The database file ..\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb usually grows to about a 1GB. Earlier versions of the Windows Update Client did not handle that file well. They were not releasing the RAM that they used to read thru that 1GB file. This can be seen by using a tool like RAMMap.

Win 7 premium SP1 x86

Well WUS is working as intended for now,Had to remove those win 10 spy-ware updated and delete the nag ware folder it creates, So apart from it hanging at shut-down sometimes requiring a reset or power off by switches, I think it could be related to some of the Asus utility s/w i have installed , just finding out which driver ect,

I have done a few tests/benchmarks, to test the GPU and oc'ed the CPU and Ram for a brief period there's more options to tweak stuff than most would know what to do with, or probably ever use, i was going to update the bios, but everything so far appears to work ok, ,well apart from the usb ports failing to do anything following a restart that was initiated by software or windows

And once again a big thank you to all those who have helped with their input,

Win 7 premium SP1 x86

Yes i was aware of the no usb 3 support, though the actual win 7 installation wasn't too bad, had working usb for both kb and mouse though install , all usb3 and 3.1 drivers are installed , unless there's a setting in the bios that needs to be set back to the default value ?? as you have to make some changes to the bios settings to be able to install win7 from dvd and for it to boot iirc

Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320
So my brother-in-law asked me to take a look at his laptop computer (Acer Aspire 5810TG) that would not boot. After doing so I believe a couple of things happened 1) Someone spilled something on the KB and 2) it was dropped. I have tried multiple tasks with the HDD and finally gave up with it as...

Trouble with Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320
Reinstalling from scratch. Having just started updates, done SP1. Windows Update Agent updates itself to 7.6.7600.256, then to 7.6.7600.320 and trouble starts. Checking for updates brings nothing, no Internet traffic (I know this is supposed to be "normal", but bear with me). System Tray...
