Windows not updating
This problem has been bugging a lot of Windows 7 users for a very long time, and we are still hearing complaints about Microsoft not solving it today:” I cannot go pass the Checking for updates window and go into the Downloading updates part.” In this case, it becomes impossible to update the newly released update packs or patches from Windows, which could be a severe risk if the released pack is vital to certain bugs.

Hi Doug, Unfortunately Windows Update isn't working great for anyone on Windows 7 lately.
However, I've had better results after this update was installed: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810 It "should" pick up the updates a lot quicker. It usually picks up all the updates within 10-20 minutes. I've had much quicker results checking in the morning than in the evening.
If you’re still having trouble after running the troubleshooter (or if you’re the type that just likes to do things yourself), performing the same actions manually may help where the troubleshooter didn’t.This can happen on Windows 7, 8, or 10, but it’s become especially common with Windows 7. No matter what troubles you’re having, we recommend keeping automatic updates turned on—it’s one of the best ways to keep yourself safe from ransomware and other threats.
