SOLVED! Resolving Win 7 updates problems
5

After almost a year with the same sort of problems reported in this forum (and unsuccessfully trying different options suggested by Forum members and via many online searches) being clicking to Update and even after more than 24 hours the spinning circle is still going strong, so nothing being done, I accidentally found the solution and IT WORKS!

First, type in your address panel, separately in order: KB3020369 download and click to download when you reach the MS webpage, followed by KB3172605 download doing the same so you then have both files on your computer.

Go to START and type in the panel Windows Update then click on Change Settings and on Never Check for Updates and then RESTART your computer before running the first KB3020369 file. When that has completed, run the second KB3172605 file. The computer may restart during this process.

When completed, restart if so directed.

Finally, open Windows Update again, click on Change Settings and change to install Updates Automatically. This should bring up, in a very short time, around (well, in my case) 159 updates of important status for the Windows 7 OS. You can, after all that completes (not too long I found despite the large number) and after restarting the computer (messages about doing the updates whilst closing and again when restarting of course) you can set how you want Updates to be dealt with in future.
