If you are trying to run Windows Updates on your Windows 7 machine but it is seemingly stuck on “Checking for Updates” for hours, then there is a fix for it.
You should download the Microsoft fix using the download button below and install this before trying to run the updates again.
If the fix will not load, you can stop the Windows Update service and then try to run the fix again.
