    Hi folks

    I have just performed a clean install of Windows 7 and SP1 (64bit) on a Toshiba Equium L300 which was previously running Vista. The install worked fine but Windows Update just sits there checking for updates as long as I leave it.

    I have tried Microsoft Fix It tool but that hasn't helped.

    Hello Martyn,

    Please check and ensure that the following things are in order:

    Ensure that the date and time on the system is correct.
    Check and ensure that Windows is activated.
    If you installed any security software, please disable it.
    Manually download and install Service Pack 1 from Microsoft site.
    Refer these 2 links for Windows System Update Readiness Tool:

    I have the same problem but the above links say this page doesn’t exist and Windows System Update Readiness Tool from the support site installs ok but when executed does the same thing as the Windows update does and that would be runs but nothing ever happins. 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. 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.
