The thing is, your installed updates stay installed, it just may help to get new updates faster, once you start searching updates again after this.
It may be that you need to try a few other fixes with this as well, just try, as I said , the updates you already have installed stay installed.
I haven't installed any updates because i did a fresh W7 install :D

Do what I did, go to sleep then by morning you'll get more than a 1GB of updates. I really don't care for the updates beyond sp1. I use avast for protection

Nah, my Machine takes around 10 hours to find all updates, i have thought that the solutions posted were going to help to find updates in 1 or 2 hours, my mistake for no reading the whole thread, I can wait, it's not that I can't play games while Windows search for updates.

Do you really care for the updates beyond sp1? Really all you need is antivirus software and malware software

Of course you need all the updates - the security updates at least. Why would Microsoft spend all that time and money in developing and releasing them otherwise?

Ok, a fair question.

In short, it's because malware could get round the a/v app by exploiting a hole in Windows, ie it could have a chance to install itself before the a/v app can even see it. This is why you actually need all software running on your PC to be patched to the latest versions, whether it be the os, a/v or an application like Firefox or Steam. Flaws in any of them could allow malware to find a way to sneak past all the defences in the system. It doesn't have to be always, either. Just once is enough to screw you over and leave your PC riddled with malware - one infection tends to attract another as new security holes are opened and as the malware does its dirty work.

Just patch everything and only ever miss out a patch as a rare exception where it's known to cause a problem, such as a blue screen, etc.

Personally, I just accept all the patches going nowadays with only a very cursery look at them and almost never have a problem. I don't even remember the last time there was a problem with one of them for me.

Here is a quick and dirty. I havent had alot of time to test but it seemed to work on my VM. I will probably modify this and add support for other stuff later.

Right now it assumes you are running windows 7 x64 and not x86

EDIT: MAybe I should elaborate. I made this script to go through the steps in the link above automatically. The link is a method people have found that drastically speeds up the time it takes a fresh install of 7 to get updates.

I can personally confirm this. I wrote up a batch to download the msu install fiels for the updates themselves. I then made a mechanism to keep track of "stages" so that the batch can "keep track of progress" between reboots.

The batch will automatically skip to the next "Stage" of installation. Eventually cleaning itself up and finally leaving your system patched and in a state were you an pull windows updates in a reasonable amount of time.

EDIT2:: I updated it to support 32bit windows versions. I also have it copy itself to startup folder temporarily until all the stages are complete. It then deletes itself and lets you know everything is done.

Code below for the crazies.

Code:
@Echo off
SETLOCAL EnableDelayedExpansion
for /F "tokens=1,2 delims=#" %%a in ('"prompt #$H#$E# & echo on & for %%b in (1) do     rem"') do (
  set "DEL=%%a"
)

cls

if '%errorlevel%' == '0' ( goto start) else ( goto getPrivileges )

:getPrivileges
if '%1'=='ELEV' (shift & goto start)                            
for /f "delims=: tokens=*" %%A in ('findstr /b ::- "%~f0"') do @echo(%%A
setlocal DisableDelayedExpansion
set "batchPath=%~0"
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
Echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) > "%temp%\OEgetPrivileges.vbs"
Echo UAC.ShellExecute "!batchPath!", "ELEV", "", "runas", 1 >> "%temp%\OEgetPrivileges.vbs"

Here is a quick and dirty. I havent had alot of time to test but it seemed to work on my VM. I will probably modify this and add support for other stuff later.

Right now it assumes you are running windows 7 x64 and not x86

EDIT: MAybe I should elaborate. I made this script to go through the steps in the link above automatically. The link is a method people have found that drastically speeds up the time it takes a fresh install of 7 to get updates.

I can personally confirm this. I wrote up a batch to download the msu install fiels for the updates themselves. I then made a mechanism to keep track of "stages" so that the batch can "keep track of progress" between reboots.

The batch will automatically skip to the next "Stage" of installation. Eventually cleaning itself up and finally leaving your system patched and in a state were you an pull windows updates in a reasonable amount of time.

Code below for the crazies.

Code:
@Echo off
SETLOCAL EnableDelayedExpansion
for /F "tokens=1,2 delims=#" %%a in ('"prompt #$H#$E# & echo on & for %%b in (1) do     rem"') do (
  set "DEL=%%a"
)

for /f "delims=: tokens=*" %%A in ('findstr /b ::- "%~f0"') do @echo(%%A
setlocal DisableDelayedExpansion
set "batchPath=%~0"
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion

Gets worse every day, guys.
Yesterday I had to re-install a Win7 x86 on a very old Dell laptop, and even with all the fixes I listed earlier, it took over 12 hours to update (had to restart several dozen times, because some updates kept failing)!
Last year x86 version was the only one that did not hang during the update process, and did not suffer from high CPU load and memory usage.
My legit (and unused) Windows 7 key also failed to activate by internet and by phone: I had to go through 2 call redirects and 20 minutes of talking to M$ tech support, instead of simply clicking "Activate" button.

R.I.P. Windows 7... :cry:

I guess M.S. learned it's lesson with XP and is now making it that hard for W7 users that they choose to upgrade change to W10 to avoid the hassles.

I just updated this. It now detects windows version (so it wont attempt on anything other than windows 7) and architecture. So you can do 32 and 64 bit installs. I also now have it copy to startup so that it continues after it reboots your machine. It deletes itself and cleans up after of course. New zip and code in spilers if you want to take a look.

Total reboots are like 4 IIRC. Just let it do its thing it will tell you when its done.

This thread should be stickied... or you should create a new post that is stickied with your instructions and script. I am testing it now and so far so good! :D Saves me the effort of doing this myself and I appreciate that.

haha I do appreciate it, dont hold it in high regard just yet, you do need to manually deal with the occasional box. I cant interact with them in batch. So hitting "Close" is still something the user needs to handle.
