Unable To Install Updates Windows 7

I already had the most recent Windows Update Client installed (KB3112343, the December 2015 update, which supersedes KB3102810) but was still having the never-ending "searching for updates..." problem. After rebooting, run the commands above again. This is particularly common if the update fails to complete or causes something to stop working.

  1. I let update start and left the computer overnight and it was waiting this morning for me to restart.
  2. Whatever!One other suggestion: Configure the Windows Update service to run in its own svchost process - it won't fix WU but it will make it a lot easier to find &
  3. Go here if you get error Failure configuring Windows updates.
  4. Say goodbye to the MS-DOS command prompt It had a good 36-year run, but its day is done.
