Re: problem updating windows 7

Hi Jean! I'm having the same issue that you are. I cannot get Windows 7 updates to install or download. It will say 0 percent for hours, and then finally give me an error message. I will get the option to retry. When I do, I go through the same process again. No updates are ever installed. Not sure why this is happening, but it is definitely frustrating.

Hi Vicki, I had to wait a couple of days for all of my windows updates to download after reinstalling Windows7 but don't worry, they will be downloaded. It may just take some time.

people have had to wait for twenty-four hours or longer, as I recall.

I am having an issue with Windows update using Windows 7.

I haven't been able to use my laptop for several months and it is now
trying to do the updates. I have it set to notify me but not to
download or install the updates.

I went ahead and selected the updates and it should be downloading and
installing, which is says it is.

It isn't! It just sticks at 0% and has for several of hours.

I find it interesting that even though I haven't updated since June,
there is no malicious software tool to install, only office and updates.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I can try? As a side note, I
did use the Never update to windows 10 tool.
