Fresh Install Windows 7 = Windows Update keep searching for updates

Hello,

So here is my problem, I reinstalled my windows 7 ultimate x64 using the fresh backup I did the day I bought my laptop.

So the installation was done without any issue and everything seems to be working fine apart of Windows Update. When I launch the update, Windows Update just keep looking for updates withtout finding nothing and then after a long time, it show an error msg, I got two different for the moment : 8024400a and 8024402F


I have attached the CBS logs if someone can have a look.



Thank you in advance.

Do reply #2 from this thread and windows update will work perfectly.

Windows Update will not update and I've tried multiple fixes

After that and windows update is working, only install security updates.

After all the security updates are done......

Then you have to read the description of each and every important/recommended/optional update to see if you need or want it.

Here is a list of updates you can hide.

And set windows update to these settings.

And there are 2 recent updates popping up listed Intel System with no KB#, you do not need either of them.
