No updates are ever shown or downloaded. This same Clean install was preformed the same way a couple of years ago and windows update worked just like it was suppose to. This is a clean install which is offered on my HP desktop PC using the HP Recovery Tool that is portioned for a Drive D: for the factory install. Windows 7 SP1. Registry fixs have been tried, along with system restore and Windows System Update Readiness Tool . Windows Internet Explorer 11 has been updated from a web site and I just cant figure out what could be the problem. Thanks for your time and help.

Follow these instructions exactly.
First, set Windows Updates to never check for Updates.
Next restart your computer, then install KB3020369, if not installed.
Then install KB3172605.

Windows updates should return to normal. You can then reset your updates to automatically check for updates if desired

You nailed it. I just found that same fix today on another support group. I saw a min ago in my email that you had posted this fix and wanted to say THX !!! This is the only fix that finally worked out.
