Windows Update spins "checking for updates"; SURT installer spins

Q: Windows Update spins "checking for updates"; SURT installer spins

Windows Update spins forever on "checking for updatse". The Win Update Troubleshooter gives error 0x8024402C. I have tried numerous fixes including some KBs - no success.

Today I tried steps 1 and 2 that you recommend should be run before posting on this problem.

1. The SURT installer has been spinning > 3 hrs on "searching for updates on this computer".

2. I ran "sfc /scannow". It says "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them" and refers to CBS.log - but that is an empty file.

Can anyone advise me?

Preferred Solution: Windows Update spins "checking for updates"; SURT installer spins

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello everyone,

I am pretty good with computers and stuff, but I have been having a problem now for a few months trying to boot up an old 486-DX 100 HMz computer.

It is a hack computer, with rogue parts making it up. It used to work great when I set it up for my little sister to do school work on, but now it is goofed up. Real bad.

Its gutted right now, just a motherboard and power supply, etc. I have 2 seperate Winbond IDE controller cards, one of which I just picked up tonight while getting a brand new Flopp Disk drive. A few of the primary specs of the new controller are:

Winbond IDE/Floppy Controller
Winbond Chip - W3758P

Data Technology Chips
DTC2278VL and DTC-805

The old card is an almost exact duplicate, differing in that it offers two IDE pinouts rather than one

I have been thru the BIOS extensively, and it should realistically be working just fine with the specifics entered. It is an AMIBIOS 1994 model. Specs as follows:

AMI 486 Vesa Green Bios (v. B)

Processor gives a screen output of:
i486 DX 4 - 100 MHZ CPU

Ok, so heres the problem (if you have made it this far, thanks).
I am trying to get this thing up and running again. I know the motherboard is in good shape, and I have a good idea that my IDE cards are as well. When I turn it on, however, the Drive Light stays on, and the cylinder rotates to no end. I have a brand new Dick Drive, and am getting the same problems.

If I switch the input of the Floppy Cable (flip it around) the drive stays idle, as if ... Read more

A:Floppy Drive - Light Stays "On", while Cylinder Spins - Can you help?

Alright, Id like to thank absolutely nobody for even looking at my thread! However, as usual, I have used the awesome power of my incredible brain, and found my own answer to my first question.
Now I have a second. I am using an old as f-uck floppy cable. So old that in fact, it has the card slots for 5 and a half inch Drives. The slots are throwing off my BIOS, automatically taking the place of Drive A. In turn, i must assign my Floppy to Drive B.

My BIOS Options do not have the possibility of setting a boot sequence for B, C or B, A, C or anything else. Only A, C or C, A.

I doubt any of you would know, but can I get away with cutting off the old card slots on the cable? Since noone has posted any replies to my last question, and from what I have gathered from scouting old posts, I assume noone knows. Im probably dealing with some amateur-at-best class programmers.

I know someone on here has to be Nerd enough to know. And Nerds not an insult, so dont go gettin all uppity, please. Im plenty freakin Nerd myself!

I've gone through several threads relating to this issue, with zero luck, so far.  Have had this installation of Win7 x64 for over a year with no WU issues.  Hadn't updated in a few weeks, so I went to do a manual check, today.  The netsvcs
process w/ WU locks one of my cores (25% CPU use).  Initially, this process accesses a variety of files on the drive, but, after a few minutes, there is absolutely zero further file access from this process.  Process never shuts down or releases
that 25% CPU.

I've run the Windows Update Troubleshooter.  Had problems the first time, rebooted, stopped the crypt, BITS, and WU process.  Ran it, again, it "fixed" four issues and claimed that everything was swell.  Rebooted, ran WU... perpetual
"checking."

Walked through the manual process from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058, though I did get a number of errors when trying to register many of the modules in step six.  So, didn't have much confidence.  Anyway, continued through the steps,
rebooted, ran WU...  No dice.

Manually downloaded and ran the two updates from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810 and https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3083710.  Both told me they were already installed.

At this point, I'm looking at a complete wipe and reinstall, which I'd really rather avoid.  Any other bright ideas to resolve this?  WU log at https://www.dropbox.com/s/3... Read more

Hi
I've been trying to set up a few second hand laptops for a charity youth club. One went without a hitch, one won't update Windows at all.

It's running Windows 7 SP1, I've tried various fixes but nothing seems to be working.

I've followed the instructions on the post. Attached is my CBS log zip file. I don't have any error codes as it just sits on "Checking for Updates".

Interestingly the first time I ran the SURT it just sat for over 8 hours on "Checking for Updates" as well. Second time, after a power down & reboot it did it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This was meant to be a quick favour & now turning into a long job!

Hi,

I installed win 7 recently and activated it. The updates dont seem to install automatically. I have tried many FixIt and manuall installation past 3 to 4 days, but nothing worked. The maximum I could go was getting "193 updates available" alert. Even if I select one update out of those it just loops forever in checking/searching for updates. I installed Win10 hoping that would resolve it but coudnt activate win due to clean install. So I have now reinstalled win7 but again stuck in same place. I tried installing System Update readiness tool and its running for around 2 hours now. But the CBS log file's last update timestamp seems to have stopped an hour before.

I checked the posting instructions and it says wait for few hours after running SRUT, before posting. I see a dialog box with title "Windows Update standalone installer" and message "Searching for updates on this computer..." . Attached CBS folder. Please advise.

Regards,
Shah

Good morning,

I just registered, so I'm not entirely sure how this forum runs. I'm assuming you can see my computer information in my user profile, but please let me know if you need me to post it here again.

When I run Windows Update, it hangs permanently on "Checking for Updates." No error ever displays.

I ran Download System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) [October 2014] from Official Microsoft Download Center according to the Windows Update posting instructions on this forum. It completed, but had no effect on my issue.

I also ran the Windows Update diagnostic from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058. It returned error 0x80070490.

I have attached my CBS file.

Thank you for your help,

I'm hoping y'all can help me with this issue with my friend's system, running 64 bit Home Premium, Avast, and Java, Flash etc. all updated. It's stuck at "Checking For Updates."
Yesterday I installed an update to the Windows Update Client, KB3138612, and the System Update Readiness Tool. After that, 62 updates were ready for download, and I successfully installed them. After restarting, a window came up to upgrade the browser from IE 10 to IE 11. I did so, then ran Windows Updates again to check for security updates to IE 11. Stuck in an endless loop again.
I reset the Windows Components with FIXIT 971058. This resolved two errors: Reset Windows Update Data Store (Root Cause) and Service Registration Missing or Corrupt. Still stuck in a loop.
I installed the latest version of the Windows Update Agent and rebooted. Still no joy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I looked over the contents of the CBS.log before coming to this forum. Something is definitely wrong, but I can't make heads or tails of it.

Hi everybody,

I am running in to a problem where the Windows Update is stuck on checking for updates, now I have freshly upgraded a Windows 7 machine from Enterprise to Professional with a new product key - which it did work, activated as a Genuine. But it might not be just the Windows Update, any other software would be doing the same thing as for Windows Update - checking for updates, so I am just wondering if there is a one way click to solve this problem?

Everything else works except from the Windows Update, what is doing is just checking for updates and it hangs on checking for hours and hours - so I had enough and I want to find a best solution that would work.

Now, I am not quite sure if the Windows Update is taking time to get all the updates gathered in or it might be stuck. But I don't know, I can't really tell on what the computer is doing in the background process.

During the research for finding this solution, and I have came up with different solutions, but I don't want to risk too much on registry or doing manual servicing including in with deleting a few files from the C: drive, downloading a few tweakers/fixers applications such as Microsoft FixIt - but none of this solved the problem, apart from being patient and wait.

The only thing I haven't done is doing a sfc /scannow check, disk clean up or reinstall Windows 7 Professional and doing a disk check before startup.

A:windows 7 sp1 update stuck at "checking for updates"

This is currently a common issue - partly caused by a poor update from MS which slows the process down, and partly caused by throttling of the MS servers.

Simply leave WU to do it's thing overnight - or longer if necessary - it will get there in the end.
If it's still not completed a scan after 24 hours running...
Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

I work for an IT firm in The Bahamas, and as a result, do a lot of Windows 7 reloads.  However, I have noticed that recently (within the last year) Windows 7 has a very difficult time updating after a fresh reload with SP1.  When I check for updates,
it starts scanning and says "Checking for Updates", but never finds any.  It just keeps checking.  I've left it running for 48 hours without ever finding a single update.

Here's the thing, it isn't a particular computer.  As I said, I do a lot of reloads.  This happens on almost every computer after a reload of Windows 7 regardless of brand.  Sometimes I scan before activating Windows, sometimes after. 
There is no antivirus installed and I've tried it with Windows Firewall both enabled and disabled.  Sometimes after scanning for a long time, it will automatically install updates without having me select any of the updates.  It still says "Checking
for Updates." Other times, it just never finds or installs any updates, but it still says "Checking for Updates".  I'm not the only one who has recognized the problems, my colleagues have also experienced it.  I've also tried updating
on many different networks: home, work, customers network, etc.  Same result.

I have done lots of research online to see if other people have been having this issue, but I have not found anything.  Has anybody else been experiencing this probl... Read more

I recently bought a used Hp laptop and using HP care tools reinstalled a fresh copy of Win 8. I had serious problems getting updates to install. It kept getting stuck on "Failure to configure updates, reverting changes" I ran the Microsoft Fix
it tool several times. Each time being told it was fixed. It never was. I gave up and did another install. Now windows update doesn't find any updates. 
I have run the check from the control panel and from the Win 8 PC Settings menu. From the PC Settings, checking for updates ran for about 20 minutes before stopping and saying "Never checked for updates" with the option to check again. I also ran
Microsoft Fix It AGAIN. Not fixed....again. The troubleshooting shows problems to be-- Potential Windows Update Database error detected 0x80070490 - Fixed and Windows Update components must be repaired- Fixed. It "fixes" these same issues every time.
Even before when it found updates but would not install them. After a fresh install of Win 8 there shouldn't be ANY issues, right?
I have installed no programs since the recent reinstall of windows just in case it was my antivirus as suggested in another help article. Is there any fix for this or should I just give up and install Win 7?  

A:Windows update continually "checking for updates"

I finally got it to work. I had to go into Services and stop/restart both Windows Update and Windows Module Installer. Then launch windows update again and it showed the updates. 

They have to be installed 1 at a time. I tried to do 5 at once when it seemed things were working properly again and Windows took that to mean I wanted all updates installed. Of course it failed again with the "failure to configure updates" and I
was back at square one.

To get into services just hit the windows key and R at the same time. Type services.msc then hit enter. I also set both the Update and Installer to manual. Not sure if that had anything to do with making it work.

I am running Windows 7 Home, 64 bit edition.
Since Monday, Aug. 1 when I had a notification that Windows update had 44 updates available for me, the Update window has been constantly "Checking for Updates". When I first checked the notification, I was shown a window with the listed updates.
After looking them over, to be certain that there was no Windows 10 in the list, I clicked ok. Since then for three solid days it has been "Checking for Updates". I have rebooted each morning, and the same screen is there. My computer is usually
on at least 12-15 hours, and in that time it appears only 2 updates have actually taken place. The list I was shown at the beginning consisted of mostly files less than 5 megabytes each. Nothing remotely large enough to cause delayed downloading. 
How can I get the Updates to actually begin, and stop "Checking for updates"? or is there some alternate way to get the necessary files?

Thanks

Hey guys,

I have newly installed Windows 7 Prof. 64 Bit SP1 on my Lenovo Thinkpad T60p (with T61 Mainboard and Penryn T8100 processor).

So far this is what I did:

1) installed IE 11 through the browser (i.e. the old IE 8)
2) installed Microsoft Security Essentials by downloading the installer through IE 8
3) ran the first check of MSE - all good
4) actived Windows successfully
5) changed some visual settings to have better graphics in Windows (nothing special)

I have done nothing else to the system. No driver, no whatsoever.

Unfortunately Windows Updates will simply not download let alone install any of the updates that should be abundantly available. Automatic update is enabled, firewall is on. I've been having this problem all day long and tried reinstalling Windows several times, but it would not wipe out the error.

I am currently running the SURT file, also trying to get updates via wsus offline (dunno exactly what's going on with these).

See the attachments for the full windowsupdate.log of this installation.

What do you suggest?

Thank you very much!

I'm not really sure how many websites are affected, because I don't always look at the spinner in the browser's tab unless I can't see something I know is on the page.

Where it is very noticeable is on several websites with multi-page articles. What I'm missing (perhaps among other things) is the link to go forward, back, or to a specific page. I wind up reading only the first page of lots of different articles. :-(

I don't always use the tunnel, and to forestall the obvious question, I'll have to go back and search through my past connections to get specific examples. One medical website had the problem, but I'll have to search for which one it was.

Are there any general known solutions to this general issue? I was thinking about trying to look up specific elements on a page and where they link to and then use Wireshark to see if I could find one that continued to attempt a connection unsuccessfully. But I'm not a programmer or TCP/IP guru, and that approach looks daunting.

Thanks for any general comments or tips.

Hi everyone, I think I've got a fairly tricky problem here.
I just finished installing Windows 7 Pro (SP1 included) x64 on my laptop. Pretty much the first thing I did was go to check for updates. This was taking forever, and upon looking at the resource monitor, it appears that svchost (you can just which services
it's hosting) was hung at %50, or one CPU core. No HDD activity to speak of, just a process spinning its wheels.
I've tried multiple troubleshooting steps, from running the Update readiness tool (Which didn't find anything wrong), resetting windows update using multiple tools, running an SFC (which said the system was in perfect condition), and of course rebooting
several times in between.
Checking the CBS log file, there are many lines reading "Failed to internally open package. [HRESULT = 0x800F0805 - CBS_E_INVALID_PACKAGE]". Windows Update appears to soldier on past that however, where it apparently reads out its last cached package
(successfully it would seem) then stop dead. When I net stop wuauserv, the log seems to mention TrustedInstaller a few times, then that's about all the interesting information I can gather.
The WindowsUpdate.log file is not terribly helpful either; just before the hang it says "PT: Synchronizing extended update info", then it lists off a ServiceId and Server URL. Nothing after that!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, i'm having a hard time with Windows Update. When i check for for updates it gets stuck and even if i dont check for updates, the Windows Update service starts anyway. In both cases it is accompanied by high CPU usage as shown here:



List of things i did:
1. Anti-virus scan (nothing)
2. Windows Update Troubleshooter (didnt fix it)
3.Check Disk for Errors (no problems were detected)
I eventually tried Resetting Windows Update Componets Manually (following step 4)using the proccess described here:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058
I ran into trouble Reregistering files (step 6).
Many .dlls were NOT successful, such as regsvr32.exe shdocvw.dll (pop-up message said something along the lines of "Connected but failed to register, check if .dll is vaild and try again later'')and some more which i cant remember. That said, i completed all steps because i didnt know what else to do.
The results were the same as before apart from having my Update history whiped and new folders in Windows (don't know if i need the two them in each file):


No solution to this has been found yet. Please help.

A:Windows Update stuck at "Checking for updates'

This is a common problem now with many many people that started here over a year ago and has gotten progressively worse. There are threads on various forums (Wilders, DSLR) about it and so on. It took 4 hours and 15 minutes of "checking for updates" on my Win 7 system yesterday, but eventually they did show up and I then had no trouble installing them. All I can suggest is patience, just let it run until it shows the list. I hope MS will fix this issue at some point, because a lot of people are getting very very frustrated with all this. And yes, the entire time mine was checking, the cpu usage was at a constant 50% more or less. However, I was still able to use the machine during this time, so not too much of a hardship. This issue needs fixing though, for sure!

PS: Various people have posted various temporary fixes, but nothing sticks. The next month the same problem occurs on the next update check. So at this time, there is no real solution. Don't bother looking for one, in other words...

I know this is an old thread, but what exactly did you do in safe mode? I have the exact same problem. I tried to boot in safe mode. Tried opening Windows Update, but nothing at all happened (it would not open). I seem to have found info saying that Windows Update cannot open in safe mode.

Anyway, nothing new when I rebooted again and tried to check for updates in Windows Update again. It just keeps checking and checking and checking for hours...

I've also tried the Microsoft Fix It tool, but what happens there is that it says "Checking for updates on the Internet" and is stuck there. So basically the same thing as in Windows Update...

Btw, I have just done a clean install of Windows 7 Professional x64 (SP1) on this computer, so this is the first time I run Windows Update after that (meaning no updates have ever been installed).

I am not tech savvy at all, so now I'm clueless...

Hi,

I've purchased a refurbished Dell notebook that has Windows 7 home Prem. Have had it for a few months and everything works great. However it has never been able to do a Windows update. Been trying to get the update to work on and off since I bought it. It's a valid Windows install and has a registered product code.

I mention that because it is compatible for a free Windows 10 upgrade. (it's a notebook that can be used as a tablet and I really like how Windows 10 works on my other PCs).

I have been trying to get the regular windows 7 update to work so I can start off with an up to date 7 to 10 upgrade. I've tried everything ... with no success.

BTW, the update history shows only two MS file updates .. and when I start the update process the first screen says "Most recent updates .. Never Updates were installed .. Never.

And it continues in a "Checking for Updates" mode ... (I've even left it overnight) ... It's not frozen and the activity bar is moving .. Network activity is zero .. and I'm using 50 percent of my memory (with nothing else running) So I can not update my OS ..

On a whim I tried the MS windows 10 upgrade. (I've done it on a couple of other computers without issues). The upgrade goes smoothly and quickly and get all way to the last point where it checks for any OS updates ... and then sits there ... not frozen .. running ... and doing nothing. So at that point I find I can not cancel or go back and my only option is... Read more

So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

Hello again, friends.

Ok so here's my new issue. I got a new hard drive and successfully installed Windows 7 on it. I temporarily slaved the old OS hard drive so that I could copy some files from it because the drive was failing.

My issue is that when I check for updates, it doesn't go beyond the "checking" and it basically times out. Seems odd... has anyone else had this happen and what do I do? You don't think that maybe the computer is confused because the OS still remains on the drive that is temporarily slaved do you? One odd thing is that I checked the update history and clearly some went on there. So I don't know. Help?

You guys rock. Thanks for helping me out with the last issue.

Use this Tech Bench link and download your version of Windows 10 ISO file:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/soft...load/techbench

Scroll down to Select Edition > click the pointer at the right and select Windows 10 ( 1st one on the list )> click Confirm.
Click the pointer and select Language > make sure you pick the same language the computer is now running > click Confirm
Select the bit version, 32 or 64-bit. Make sure you select the same bit version as the computer is now running.
at the bottom, click the pointer next to Save > click Save As > navigate to a folder of your choice > click the chosen folder > click Save
The iso will start downloading to your chosen folder.
When it is done, go to that folder > open the folder > right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe
Installation will begin.
It will allow you to keep you files, settings and apps.
No product key is required. ( If for some reason you are asked for product key, just click the SKIP option or the "I do not have a product key" option and continue.)
Activation will be automatic.

After successful installation and activation, you can, if you want to, burn the iso file to a bootable media, DVD or USB.
You can use it for clean install or for future reinstall.

Hi everybody. I have a problem with Windows Update. It just permanently hangs on the message, "Checking for the latest updates for your computer . . ." I'm not sure what to do about this.

I've tried a few things, and they haven't worked. so any help would be very welcome.

I have checked the settings on the BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) and I also checked the Automatic Updates service. It doesn't appear that anything is wrong with these or the settings are off. I deleted the catroot2 folder in system32, but that didn't fix it either. (I made a backup. No worries.)

I'm using Windows XP with SP2 installed. I have Internet Explorer 7 installed, and all the windows update sites are added in the trusted websites list.

So, what do I do?

Okay, I think this was fixed after I installed Windows Genuine Advantage tools. hmm....
 

A:Windows Update Hangs - Stuck "Checking"

I too experienced this problem. After contacting tech support for Windows Update they gave me several things to try. Then the problem progressed to offering the high priority updates which I said to download and install. Well the update process froze at "Preparing to Download". Then I made a further discovery that if I let the download process run for 10 to 15 minutes and then abort it with the Task Manager and then return to Windows Update, and select "Custom" the updates had downloaded and were ready to install.

Through such convoluted actions I was finally able to bring my system up to date.

BTW, during this time Automatic Updates never offered an update.

Hi

I recently installed Windows 10 Enterprise Eval build 10240 (64bit) on my Inspiron 15 (5547, Early 2014) but when I try to install drivers all drivers give me this error: "The update installer operation is unsuccessful".

Without drivers laptop is useless and I am in so much trouble.
So please fix your drivers for Inspiron 15 (5547) and check them on same laptop with same version of windows before uploading on your database.

Thanks
Jamshaid
