Recommended Posts

As you see from image when I launch windows update its just eat memory.

PC (laptop)  specs:
Model : Fujitsu Lifebook T730
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 M460 @2.53 GHz
System type : 64 bit
OS : Windows 7 Professional

Hard Disk has around 60% free space (from 112GB , 67GB is free space)

Also I noticed that my laptop turn off very slow (my desktop pc from 2002 turns off faster then this laptop)
I going to university in few days and want to fix all issues on my laptop.

I hope this will resolve the Win7 perpetual update issue for you.

Ron posted a helpful sticky for this here (Thanks for that!!):https://forums.malwarebytes.org/topic/187484-repair-slow-windows-updates-on-windows-7/
(The advice mirrored similar suggestions posted by Woody L at infoworld here)

Those 2 patches did not resolve the issue for me on my 2 Win7 boxes.
Saturday, I finally got the Sept patches installed on my Win7 desktop, after waiting nearly 3 hours for them to download.
Also on Saturday, I gave up in despair after waiting on "checking for updates" after 3 hours on my Win7 laptop.

I had seen mention of KB 3020369 and KB 3172605 at other fora, but few posts mention the actual detailed steps needed.
Out of desperation yesterday, I followed the step-by-step instructions HERE.

That did the trick!!
The whole process (instituting the fix, rebooting, checking for updates and installing the 12 available patches) took less than 20 minutes, instead of hours and hours.

I plan to implement the fix on the Win7 desktop, as well.

I hope this works for you, too!
