This question already has an answer here:
The problem I cannot run updates on a window 7 computer, because it gets stuck at "Checking for updates". That I have tried:
- Disabling the antivirus
- Deleting all contents from the update folder
- Updating the update client from microsoft.
- Running chkdsk /f
- Waiting for a whole day to find the updates.
Nothing seems to work.
Edit: Found a workaround. No suggestions helped here. So I used this app to get all the updates manually : http://www.wsusoffline.net/
