Over the past several months reports have been rolling in in the tech world that users have been having issues updating Windows Vista, 7 and 8. The issue comes from how Windows updates are done. Basically, The older Windows gets the more updates accumulate. When Windows starts searching for updates it takes all of the available updates and THEN it needs to calculate which of the updates replaces the older ones known as "superseded". For example if you have 3 patches.

3
2
1

You would install them in that order right? Well windows will tally that it needs all 3. HOWEVER. Then Windows must double check and when it does this it finds out that patch 3 is a newer version of patch 1. It then finds out that neither are related to patch 2. Now Windows figures out that it only needs 2 patches, Patch 2 and Patch 3. As you can probably see this starts taking alot of resources and a LONG time when we have thousands of potential updates.

Thankfully we can shorten this process by downloading and installing specific patches. This is kind of like telling windows "I'm at least at this point."

I have made a script (batch) that will detect your version of Windows (Vista, 7, 8 Supported) and install type (64 or 32 bit) and download the appropriate patches and apply them so that you can get to updating in no time.

You can read more about this here, and download the patch.

Change Log:
Code:
::v9 Added Extra patches to bring Vista into 2017. Melvis forced me to do this on my brutally slow I5. Improved Windows 8 Patches.
::v8 Added UAC disable feature for even more touchless approach. Fixed some typos. Clarified instructions.
::v7 Changed batch layout to a more universal install process and rebuilt the downloads section for easier modification. Added /norestart flag.
::v6 Added Vista Support.
::v5 Added Windows 8 Support.
::v4 Fixed bug with other windows versions leaving script in startup. | Clarified actions needed by user | Improved Architecture check | Improved chance script won't hang via WU
::v3 Added /quiet | Fixed bug with other windows versions leaving script in startup. | Put check for previous run at head to skip start text.
For the crazies

We might need to make a sticky thread for this. Had to post it on several occasions, and I know for sure that it does happen 99% of the time on Win7x64 SP1 regardless of underlying hardware.

0) Disable updates temporarily, or manually turn off the update service
1) Get Microsoft FixIt tool and repair both Update Service and BITS
Download here
2) Manually download and install the latest windows update manager
Download here
3) Manually download and install KB_3102810
Download here
4) Re-enable updates. Reboot. Start the update process.

It may take awhile (between 8 and 12 hours if your internet connection is good), but it will get you out of the loop.

If you do not update the Update Agent, then it will get stuck again. Last year a simple reset/cache cleanup was sufficient.

Holy f$%&ing Microsoft... I guess it no longer exists (including an old FixIt website).

Old Windows Update Troubleshooter for Win7 does the same thing.

Try this:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/windows-update-troubleshooter

Even though it says Win10, it might work on Win7 (pretty much does the same thing).
Otherwise google for Windows Update reset batch script, since I can't remember where I've seen it...

Looks like MS is really persistent with pushing W10 upgrade process.

@P4-630 , you can try and skip that step and see if it works. Just get the update manager and CPU load fix.
If it does not work, you can always try one more time. :toast:

This has been all over the internet: Microsoft is making it hard to update and download anything for Windows 7. Try and get a W7 with SP1 ISO for reinstall...

Pushing GWX.

You need to run the Windows Update for 24hrs or more depending on how old the machine is.

Be sure to look at the shut down button for items being ready for install: ie the Gold Shield

This problem usually happens on SP1 installations. Tried it on official EN and RU iso images - same thing. Update may run for 24+ hours with no results.

I've had this same problem on the last half dozen installs...

If I manually search for updates it sits there and loops - forever. The solution that has worked for me is to leave it alone and let it update everything passively...then it works just fine. Secondarily...after installing SP1, you get a 230 update download. Each time...this has failed the first go around, where some updates are installed...others are failed. Again...if i leave it alone...it all works out in the end.

I even let the GWX stuff install...then I run Aegis for Windows 7 "after" all updates are completed.

Best,

Liquid Cool

Yeah, I've been noting it for months on the refusenik thread. They do NOT want anything older than 10 running.

I still have an HTPC on W7, and every other month I have to fix the update agent in order to get all updates. SMH....

You provided a good step by step fix. I've bookmarked it for future reference.

I'm having the same problem with Vista right now. Maybe some of this will apply too. Though I'm just about ready to quit trying and install 10.

If I manually search for updates it sits there and loops - forever. The solution that has worked for me is to leave it alone and let it update everything passively...then it works just fine. Secondarily...after installing SP1, you get a 230 update download. Each time...this has failed the first go around, where some updates are installed...others are failed. Again...if i leave it alone...it all works out in the end.

I even let the GWX stuff install...then I run Aegis for Windows 7 "after" all updates are completed.

Best,

Liquid Cool
This. I had the same problem and just rebooted the rig and let it do it's own thing instead of manually pushing the updates. Within a day or so it was fully updated on it own.

For about how long should step 3 be running @silentbogo ?
Should be relatively fast (no more than 10 min) If it is stuck, try to skip it. Apparently some crap has changed in the pile of updates and some report even more issues.

I had this thing on my APU rig. Had to run FixIt again and again until this update installed (couldn't go any further due to 100% CPU load on a dual-core w/3GB RAM)

This (3 being even more important). Literally everything else is irrelevant.
3 was "searching for updates on this computer" and never ended on my laptop, unless I have to let it run for hours or so.

I notice this problem too at work when all the Lenovo laptops i sell comes with pre-installed Windows 7 Professional, updates takes most of the morning to find and finish until the "Windows 10 Upgrade" update is installed than it updates fine after that one is installed.

Mby Microsoft has started to priorities updates for Windows 7 lower bcs they want ppl to upgrade to Windows 10 ;)
