Please Sticky Help For Windows Updates

Postby jesussaddle » Mon May 30, 2016 11:21 pm

Hi. For those on windows 7, having hung or lengthy windows updates, this worked for me. After not finding a solution on Google previously.

Basically, you download a hotfix file, which is a windows standalone update. Then, go into control panel - administrative tools, and go into services. Stop and then start the windows update service. Then run the hotfix. After doing this I immediately got my windows update to instantly find an update and install it.

IMHO this should not be a sticky as the standard advice is to update via Windows update (nb this does not appear to be a hotfix, rather a normal update). If you are having problems with Windows Update then that's a Windows issue not Geist IMHO.I think resetting Windows update would have downloaded this update as well.

Another thing I would consider is updating to Windows 10 (there's just 2 months to go).


Glad you found the solution though :D
