Even if the updates were to take long to download an install, the screen
should present him with some sort of status as to what is happening. I've
never setup a custom computer or big box manufacturer's computer without the
Windows Updates screen conveying at least some small piece of information as
to what is happening regarding updates. ...with that stated, I'll add that
computers, like people, have personalities. :)

Yes that is possible, but even a typical update not accounting for the long
delay issue can take quite some time after a clean installation.

Isn't there a reasonable chance that this is the Windows 7 long
delay in updates that has been discussed on different lists and in some
articles I've read. As I recall, some people have simply let the update
procedure sit and eventually updates were downloaded.

I believe that in some cases the procedure was so slow that more
than 24 hours was needed.

Actually, upon further consideration, what you're describing sounds
as if it may already be in the middle of performing an update.

I'm not sure then. It sounds as if there may be a problem
with the Windows Update component.

Good Morning Carlos,

After typing, wuapp, into the Run dialogue I'm
getting a progress bar of 0 percent. I have all the usual links there,
except for the Important & Optional links.
Take care.

Hi Mike,

Try typing
wuapp
from the
"Run"
dialog. As usual, you can open the
"Run"
dialog by pressing Windows key+R.

Hi All,

I just reinstalled Windows7 Pro yesterday, &
I'm running Jaws15. I'm told that I've got new updates, but when I click on
the system tray icon it takes me to the desktop. When I go to the control
panel / windows updates I can't find the Important or Optional updates links
either. What do I do to get to these updates so I can install them?!
Thanks much.
Take care.
