Win 7 Updates Stuck on Downloading % For Three Days!!

Q: Win 7 Updates Stuck on Downloading % For Three Days!!

Hi Everyone....

I have been struggling thru this Win 7 update hassle on my two Dell PCs both running Win 7 , 64 bit, SP1, Windows firewall, and Avast Free. In the past, updates just took a while, but eventually, they went thru OK.

Suddenly, after this week's updates, one of my PCs got stuck at 0% downloading 5 selected updates since Tuesday. The other PC updated properly with no problem.

I have left the system on for hours on end, but it is still 0%.

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Win 7 Updates Stuck on Downloading % For Three Days!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I think the "updates freezing" issue has come up in another thread and apologies if it has, but I can't find it momentarily.

The screen shots show what I've been looking at for two days now. Obviously something is amiss with Automatic Update but I dunno what, or what to do about it.

Any advice, help????

Mods, please feel free to move me to the other thread I suspect exists.

Windows Update stuck downloading updates in Windows 10
Relevancy 77.83%

I already had it check for updates which took 12 hours, when it found some, I told it to download updates. The computer now has been running for two days with the Windows Update open displaying the following: "Downloading 242 Updates (0 KB total 0% Complete)." Which to me, sounds like it thinks that the total size of these updates is 0 kb, which doesn't make any sense. This has been sitting like this with the 'Downloading 242 Updates (0 KB total 0% Complete)' since shortly after I posted the other problem with this laptop. It is a nice laptop found up on campus in a luggage bag in the dumpster, looks brand new. Had Windows 7 Home Premium in which I formatted and put Windows 7 Ultimate on it. but now since, All that goes on with updates is, "Downloading 242 Updates (0 KB total 0% Complete)"
Any ideas on how to fix this and get the ball rolling?

A:Downloading 242 Updates (0 KB total 0% Complete) for two days now

Let me get this: You clean installed Windows with SP1? If you did, you can use the rollup package by Microsoft to install all the updates (until July as it is a July rollup package). Follow the instructions here:

So had to format my system yesterday,it usually takes around 2-3 hours for WU on"Checking for Updates" but this time it toke more than 12 hours to find them,when checked to start downloading them it wont download,it's been an hour now just " Downloading 246 updates(0 KB total,0% Complete)" is there any way to avoid this ? or is Microsoft that desperate ?

A:Downloading updates stuck at 0%

You are correct, MS is desperate, let it run overnight.

My Windows 10 version 1511 is set to download and install updates automatically but this morning, the updates download got stuck at 0% for a long time. Even after a reboot, it would not budge.
Do you guys have the same problem here?

Maybe during the downloading of the updates, I had turned off my notebook, so would that have a negative effect on the way the updates are downloaded or in process of downloading?
So for example, next time if there is a Windows Update and the downloads are in progress, is it OK to turn off my machine while Windows 10 is downloading the patches or security updates?

The only way I could recover from this mess, is that I read these steps from the below link.
? ??? -updates

But overall in general, the way Win10 handles these updates is a PURE MESS, and I hope in Redstone, this will be fixed.
I never had these issues in Win7...

A:Win10 Updates stuck downloading

I had a hard time updating my 10586 (1511) Version so I let it update and download over night. DON'T !! it also downloaded the "Feature update", meaning the anniversary update and tried to install that. I interrupted the update so Windows will be forced to go back to the 1511 Version.
Whenever a new cumulative update is available, I made it a habit to download it from the catalog:
Microsoft Update Catalog

that way I do not rely on the Windows update and can do that even disconnected from the web.. Has always worked for me...

A:Windows 7 Updates-Checking and Downloading stuck at 0%

I went online to try again tonight and it appears that the Updates are working. I don't know how or why but I'm now thinking it was more of an overloaded server than anything else.

This has never happened before but I can't download the latest batch of updates! I've tried downloading one at a time but it makes no difference, just stuck on downloading 0%. I've tried to go into services.msc to switch off windows updates but it says 'stopping' with the options to stop/re-start greyed out.

I've tried the windows trouble shooter which detects problems and then says resolving but again after 20 minutes or so it still says the same thing. Does it take a long time (perhaps I'm being impatient)?

I've run out of time tonight but will try the windows update system readiness tool tomorrow.

In the meantime, does anyone have ideas I could try? As I say, I've never had problems downloading updates before.

You mean, it's searching for updates, takes a while, finds the updates, but when you select to install, it takes forever to download?

If that's the case, how long did you wait for it to start downloading before cancelling?

Yesterday when I started downloading windows update, only one update could be downloaded i. KB3114431. After that may be there was some sort of problem on the network and I could not download the other updates as my network was down at that time. so I disconnected from network and cancelled the downloads and shut down the computer. It normally installed the downloaded update. after that from today morning I am unable to download any updates. The network is fine, as I can browse the internet normally. But windows update screen keeps stuck at 0%. Though now the shut down button shows the alert icon for update installation as you can see in screenshot. Is there any way to fix it? Thank you.

During a busy period, aware that Windows 10 can install itself by a sneaky update and being too busy to check each update that comes my way, I had disabled Windows Update. Only now did I remember to check for updates. I know, dumb.
There are 80 important updates that need to be installed. They all seem okay.

However, they've been downloading for over 90 minutes now, and the progress bar is still stuck at 0%. "Downloading 80 Updates (0 KB Total, 0% Complete)".

I thought these updates might solve my "slow PC issue" (referred to in my other thread), but the inability to download updates, makes me think there might be something seriously wrong with my computer.

Can it still be just a visual issue if nothing has happened after waiting for 90 minutes?
Thanks in advance,
This has been posted twice (?) I don't know how that has happened. Sorry. If you can tell me how to delete it, I will.

I went to MSI site to see how to install windows 7 x64 & I did find the official drivers for windows 7 x64. installed windows 7 x64 with no problems, games run much better on windows 7 than windows 8 which I had crashes all time. when I leave my laptop on to download for 4 or 5 hours I get back to see the blue screen every time. please I need an advise before I got to msi, maybe my problem is not huge.

I keep getting Error message: Install Failure after Windows updates are downloaded and Windows attempts to install those updates.

The download is successfull, however, after Windows 7 attempts to install those updates I get this message:

Configuring Windows Update. Do Not Turn off computer.

After Windows attempts the installations of those updates, I get the following message: Failure configuring Service Pack. Reverting Changes. Error_install_failure (0x80070643).

I contacted Microsoft on the problem via emails....they went through a number of trouble shooting techniques....but after all of their recommendations, all they could tell me was to reinstall Windows 7.

I really would not like to do that. Do you have any idea what the problem is?

As the title says, I have problems with Windows Update. I tried some fixes like: Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components, Reset_Windows_Update_History, MicrosoftFixit50362 (which is a Microsoft Installer Fixer that couldn't install PowerShell), MicrosoftFixit50202. But what I really need is installing .NET Framework 4. I tried forcing it to install, installing it step by step, but it couldn't go further than .NET Framework 3.5. I need that Framework, the other updates don't really matter. And the interesting thing is that my antivirus doesn't say that Windows is not up-to-date, which is not normal, in ESET Smart Security, if Windows is not up-to-date.

A:Windows Update stuck at Checking for Updates and can't install Updates manually

Hi antoniu200:
Many other Vista users have reported that Windows Update seems to get stuck at "Checking for updates..." for long periods of time, and this problem dates back to the August 2015 Patch Tuesday updates - see my screenshots in ScousaJAY's thread windows update just seems to hang while checking in the VistaForums. This month's December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates required a full hour on my machine before it finished the  "Checking for updates..." phase and finally presented a list of available updates, so you might want to try running a manual Windows Update and leaving your computer alone for an hour or so to see if it eventually runs to completion.
You might also want to read Nikilet's recent thread Updates were not configured correctly in that same forum.  Some Vista users, including myself, received an error message this month stating "Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes. Please do not turn off your computer" when they tried to install the December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates.  Six updates for the Vista OS and one cumulative update for IE9 were marked as "Failed" on my machine after Windows forced an automatic rollback and re-boot of my machine.  I re-ran Windows Update today and all Important updates that failed yesterday eventually installed successfully ("Checking for updates..." still took about one hour and I declined one Recommended update KB3112148 for Vista and one Optional update KB3106614 for Silverlight today) so the secret might be to install updates in smaller batches instead of trying to install all dozen or so available updates in a single update session.

We've tried all the fixes, and batch files from MS, and elsewhere, but Almost all new installations of Windows 7 will just not get updates. I have 2 machines we have formatted twice and reinstalled Win 7 and one literally has been sitting waiting for updates for 2 solid weeks. (it's not crucial, and we're sort of using it as a test. We're starting to wonder if it's an I.P. issue or something, because it only seems to be our location. I am going to grab that Vaio and bring it home and see if it works here, but for the first 3 years in our location, and some 3000 jobs (obviously not all Win 7 installs) we had no problems. Now, whether you set it to automatically update, or download and let me decide, changing time and date etc. Activated or not. It's really odd, and none of my research is finding a cause for it. Has anyone else experienced this?


A:Windows updates on Win 7 not starting after days or even weeks

Hi Js,
Update runs are notoriously slow at the moment, but not that BAD and at some stage i would have thought there would have been a timeout sent by your server, which brings me to, have you reached your licence allocation .

Are they just sat with the message checking for updates, or is it another.
Either way could you post a copy of the last days entries from the windowsupdate log, we'll go from there
(moving post to Updates/activations please read the stickys at the top of that sub-forum i will more than likely ask for some of the other operations)

A:Windows Update Stuck at downloading

Try disconnecting your PC from the internet>close Windows Update>reopen windows update and see if an install (not download) button is showing and click it. Then reboot and start downloading the next batch. Sometimes Windows needs to install what it has before it can download and install the rest. You might have to do this a couple of times. Windows also (like recently) has to update Windows Update before it can further download.

Hi John,
The simple answer is MS doesn't want users on W7 any more.
We just have to put up with this situation.
However they say, IF you you want to believe them, that they are in the process of addressing the slow D/L and install of updates for us.

we just have to live with it

note the comp you have with 2Gb ram will allways suffer, thats the min for W7.

Hey guys,

So basically, I ran windows update on my PC (I recently made a fresh install), it started downloading very slowly ; until it reached 25% where it's been at for 30 minutes. I tried stopping the download and selecting another update, to see if it was just one update that wouldn't download, but I had the same result :

Windows update was just stuck downloading.

EDIT: screen of the updates in question :
I tried to stop the firewall in ESET Smart Security; nothing. I tried the Fixit tools (.exe and .cab versions), nothing. (except that the .cab version is just stuck too).

Has that happened to any of you guys before?

I had problems yesterday with windows update (BSOD while installing updates), and it just wrecked my computer, and I had to restore to factory settings. But that can't be related?

Update : I tried to reboot, and got stuck on "windows is preparing your computer blablabla". So I hard rebooted, logged in, and now the windows update service doesn't show up any longer, I can't run anything because the UAC prompt is gone (I can't do anything that requires admin privileges)...

I am currently restoring my computer using the windows restore option... And it's stuck on "restoring your files".

So if it doesn't work out, I'll have to factory reset my computer for the third time in two days.

I had the same problem and went to the Microsoft Online Support, they gave me the following instructions quoted directly from their e-mail back to me:

"This issue may occur because of a corrupted SoftwareDistribution folder. We will rename this corrupt folder so that a new one is created when you access the site. Please follow the steps I have listed below.

We will first stop the Automatic Updates Service

1. Click Start. Choose Run.
2. In the Run box, type services.msc. Click OK.
3. Right-click the Automatic Updates Service. Click Stop.

After Stopping the Service we will rename the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

1. Open Windows Explorer. Navigate to the Windows folder
2. Click on the + next to the Windows folder
3. Navigate to SoftwareDistribution folder. Right Click on the SoftwareDistribution folder
4. Select rename from the Menu
5. Rename the folder to SoftwareDistribution.old and click Enter
6. Now restart the Automatic Update Service.

Now restart the Automatic Updates service

a. Click Start. Choose Run.
b. In the Run box, type services.msc. Click OK.
c. Right-click the Automatic Updates Service. Click Start.

Now disable any firewall and antivirus software that may be running in the background and go to check whether the issue is resolved."

I've got a problem?? (Win XP Home SP3)

Yesterday updates were suddenly being installed from ms (Office 2007) & kept reinstalling

tonight when I switched on Windows got as far as the splash screen, a quick flash of the BSD and restarted

after reading a post here I saw something similar so I carried out the following:

I ran chkdsk /r (found & repaired one or more problems)

after rerunning it the second time it said the same

booted in safe mode ran Malwarebytes which found nothing?

win xp is loading now and everything seems to be working?

however it keeps downloading updates for Office 2007 (13 of them)
after installing them it asks to shut down, if I do before it closes it installs the updates again
then after rebooting whithin 2 mins of going on the internet it starts to download the same updates

If I don't reboot it still downloads the same updates?

can anyone help?? please

I recently purchased a new BlackBerry phone that requires running BlackBerry OS6 and SP3 on my Windows XP Home Edition.

After having multiple crashes and continual reboots with SP3, I found the fix in your forums and FINALLY have SP3 installed on my HP computer running the AMD processor (thank you for that!)

However, I still cannot open BlackBerry OS6 after it has been installed. As soon as I open it, I get the "BlackBerry Desktop Software has encountered a problem..." window.

Upon reading some BlackBerry forums, I found that I might need to run Windows Updates before OS6 will work. However, I don't have internet to that PC and tether my BlackBerry to get internet service at all.

Is there a way to download all the Windows Updates I need to an external drive and then load them on the HP PC that does not have internet? How would I do this?

Two things come to my mind -- first, are you getting your updates from a reliable source, i.e. from Microsoft itself, and not from some 3rd party internet source. Second, is your MS Office closed while you are trying to do the downloads?

At 6 pm last night, it said 0%. When I went to bed at midnight, it said 3%. Whatever it is was slowing my computer down terribly!! This morning, at 10 am, it just moved to 32%!!! In other words, this downloading of updates has now gone on for at least 16 hours.....

Sure, I know my AVG came on during the night and slowed it down, and my AVG was STILL on at 10 am so I paused it....but WHAT IS BEING DOWNLOADED THAT IS TAKING SO LONG??? How do I find out?? This is NOT normal.

Major problem in our area is the lack of high speed internet connections. The majority of my students are still using dial up unless they come into the school library. This presents problems with obtaining updates for their home computers. The library computers are restricted; no software may be added. Is there a way to obtain updates directly using community computers but directly downloaded all needed updates to a USB drive?

A:Downloading WINXP updates to USB

There really isn't an easy way to do this since Microsoft doesn't typically distribute the updates in this way.

There is this option from Microsoft:
Security updates are available on ISO-9660 DVD5 image files from the Microsoft Download Center

I've never used one of these discs so I'm not sure how it works but its worth checking out.

A:Downloading updates do not download ?

It's kind of the luck of the draw. If you hit a Microsoft server at the right time it will download faster. If you hit the Microsoft server at a busy time it could take many hours.

While it's Downloading (Not Installing) updates you can reboot and try again. You might have better luck.

I found the areas to go and am waiting for a response to if they are hard to manually download and install. Also how do I find out if my computer is 32 or 64 bit, I am using

You can click start and then right click "Computer" and select properties. Scroll down and it will tell you the OS bit rate. If you have updates that may have failed have you tried the "check for updates" button to see if they're detected again?

A:Windows 7 Updates Not Downloading

If you don't have a nasty malware, then try this:
Download one and only one of the updates. Do not rush things. After install is finished AND the hard disk has settled down, then RESTART your computer whether MS said you needed to restart or not.

Keep doing this. One update at a time. Slow and tedious. I suspect you either have a virus or other software which you have installed which is dragging your system down.

I have fixed a problem I discussed in another thread by re-formatting my drive after backing up my files re-downloading Retrying updates without Now I am Retrying updates without re-downloading in the process of downloading and installing Windows updates and I wanted to ask a question about my biggest pet peeve with Windows to see if there is something I'm missing This concerns how Windows Update works I have it set to notify me of new updates and then I decide when Retrying updates without re-downloading to download and install them This means I usually don't download them unless I have time to complete both the download and install process However sometimes I have to shut down before downloading of a set of updates is finished and sometimes an update will not install correctly the first time for whatever reason If Windows Update is interrupted when only some updates have downloaded or if the installation of one or more updates is interrupted or fails for some reason then there is no way to avoid re-downloading the updates that have already been downloaded There is one quot shot quot to download and install each update in one continuous quot motion quot and if there is an interruption anywhere along that process especially between downloading and installing you have to re-download the whole thing from scratch The already-downloaded updates seem to not be kept on disk so that they can be retried when Windows is started the next time In my opinion this design is beyond idiotic The only halfway-sensible reason I can see for this behavior is that Microsoft is worried that some kind of virus or some other unintentional software would tamper with update files if they were downloaded and stored on disk for some time before being installed This actually would make some sense in that you want to guarantee that something you are installing possibly into the Windows kernel is identical to what was fetched from Microsoft's server But it would seem that putting it among system files somewhere could accomplish the same thing Anyway I wanted to make sure there wasn't just some simple setting that could be changed to allow updates to be installed or re-installed later without re-downloading if the first time failed I'm aware there are third-party updaters that I certainly hope don't have this limitation--I may well have to go over to one of those

I could have sworn that I read somewhere on Bleeping Computer that you need to have a version of IE installed on your computer in order to receive updates from Microsoft.

I just read this on their site and now I am confused:

If you prefer to use a different web browser, you can obtain updates from the Microsoft Download Center or you can stay up to date with the latest critical and security updates by using Automatic Updates. To turn on Automatic Updates:

Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Depending on which Control Panel view you use, Classic or Category, do one of the following:
Click System, and then click the Automatic Updates tab.
Click Performance and Maintenance, click System, and then click the Automatic Updates tab.
Click the option that you want. Make sure Automatic Updates is not turned off.

Can someone clear this up for me.

Thanks You,

A:Order for downloading Win updates?

Do only the "critical" ones and then do SP1. The critical ones may need to be done in groups of about 6-8 at a time, starting with the oldest or the Top of the listing.

The others are based on different hardware and software that MAY be on the machine.
For any drivers I would be going the OEM site, for updates.

As for the recommended ones, you need to have a look at each one to see if it applies to you and your machine.

Hi people, I have come looking for some advice and hopefully a solution.

I have now taken over the formatting of laptops at my work place. We buy and sell second hand laptops, so want to erase all data before we sell them.

Everything is fine, but the updates take forever, and need you to be around to continually restart the computer numerous times.

I downloaded WUD and downloaded every update at once, but still found that they could not all be installed at once (Unless I did something wrong), So I was wondering if there is some way you can install all the windows updates at once, as that would save me so much time, as some of the updates take forever to install, making the whole process a good 4-6 hour job sometimes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

A:Downloading and installing all updates at once

Hello Harlem and welcome to the forums

Some updates are cumulative (most security updates for example) and the components from the previous update have to exist before the newer update can be installed. So you won't be able to install all of these at once.

Service packs are introduced every now and then which are big packages of all of the previous updates, so you only have to reboot once.

It is possible to make a disc with all of the updates that you need to install, but I don't know how many times you need to reboot, all I know is that it saves you the hassle of downloading them all again.

WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection

Tick the Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2 and the Create ISO option (whichever of the two suits you best). Then hit the big Start button at the bottom

A:Vista Updates Not Downloading Or Installing!!! Please Help!

I believe that particular update has been pulled by Microsoft due to problems some were having with it.

Regarding the problem generally with downloading and installing updates, if I understand you correctly, you have your computer set to automatically download and install updates, and they are sometimes downloading but not installing? Or do they only download when you go to the site and do it yourself?

If you haven't looked already,there are a number of trouble shooting tips in Windows Help and Support. Just type in something like 'troubleshooting problems with installing updates', and see if there's anything there to help. I believe too, that sometimes antivirus programmes can prevent these from being installed, so you may want to try disabling yours temporarily to see if it makes a difference. You can also do a search on the error number you see when you right click on the failed update, and sometimes there's a link to follow.

Hopefully someone else will have some more suggestions for you, but if all else fails, you can always ring Microsoft for help. It's free (other than your call charges of course) for help with updates.

Let us know how you get on anyway. Good luck.

Hello AU_Tygrz,

I would have preferred some other troubleshooting to have been done before referrring you here. I'm not seeing any malware in your logs. See if you can get this online scan done to search for any remnants. It can take some time, so please be patient and allow it to run it's full course:

**Vista users - right click on the IE icon and run as administrator

Using Internet Explorer or Firefox, visit

1. Click Accept, when prompted to download and install the program files and database of malware definitions.

2. To optimize scanning time and produce a more sensible report for review:Close any open programs
Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

3. Click Run at the Security prompt. The program will then begin downloading and installing and will also update the database. Please be patient as this can take several minutes.Once the update is complete, click on My Computer under the green Scan bar to the left to start the scan.
Once the scan is complete, it will display if your system has been infected. It does not provide an option to clean/disinfect. We only require a report from it.
Do NOT be alarmed by what you see in the report. Many of the finds have likely been quarantined.
Click View scan report at the bottom.

Click the Save as Text button to save the file to your desktop so that you may post it in your next reply

I've been having some trouble downloading windows updates lately with Windows 7.  They hang at 0% downloaded and never move forward.   I used the Windows update troubleshooter to try to fix them, and it found various errors and it said they were fixed.  Though I'm still having the same exact problems.  

A:Issue with windows updates not downloading

If you do not have IE11 then install it. Install .NET 4.6.1
Download and install all updates and latest Update Client on this page.
You may find that the updates do not install. This is because the Windows Update Service has already started. You can either disable the service before installing the updates or reboot and immediately install the updates as the Update Service has a delayed start.
After you have done all updates and Update Client reboot and check for updates it could take a couple of hours or minutes.
If you still have trouble download the June rollup update and the prerequisite KB3020369 if that has not been installed.

I have two laptops operating on rather slow internet connections. I find that downloading the regular Windows updates are a necessary pain in the neck.

As I have two machines, this is a double pain.

Is it possible to download and save the update once so that the both laptops can be updated from the single download?

A:Downloading and saving Windows updates

Two ways, one automatic, the other manual. Automatic is the preferred method because it will only download those parts of each cumulative update that are new since the last update. The manual method downloads the whole of the cumulative update each time. With your slow connection that's probably going to be no less painful for you.


Go to Settings - Update & Security - Windows update - Advanced options - Choose how updates are delivered
Set both PCs to...


Set both PCs to 'Metred connection' . This will still allow them to check for updates, but stop them downloading them. Either check for updates yourself, or wait for windows to notify you an update is waiting but can't be downloaded over a metered conection.
Wireless Network Metered Connection - Set in Windows 10
Ethernet Connection - Set as Metered or Unmetered in Windows 10

When you know an update is waiting, look up its KB number in Settings - Update & Security then follow the instructions here to download it direct from the Microsoft Update Catalog.
