This question already has an answer here:
Today I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1. For some reason, it will just not update. I try to run Windows Update but all it does is hangs at "Checking for updates". I even let it sit there for 4 hours and it didn't do anything.
I looked for multiple solutions and none of them worked. I've reset windows update, I've done sfc /scannow, I've done the dism.exe command, I installed "Windows6.1-KB947821-v34-x64", but nothing seems to fix it.
I downloaded a windows diagnostic tool for windows update, and it did come up with an error that which it failed to fix: "0x800f08".
I don't know what to do at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
