When I try to install KB3172605, the standalone installer stalls at the searching for updates on this computer pop up. I will let it run a while longer and see if in installs
Probably the built in windows update service is clashing with the stand alone search.
Restart the machine and make sure the windows update service is not running

Click Start and type in the search box
Click on the suggestion or the enter key
All the way at the bottom Windows update.
Note it's setting is probably Auto delayed start.

Double click it and select Stop
Save and now try to run the stand alone installer.

After it installs switch the service back the way it was.
