    I've never had a problem getting updates on my Win7 machine ever. Today after hours of trying to update I downloaded KB3161664, turned off Windows Updates Service and then installed the update.

    After the update reboot and WU Service being back on, it took only 5 minutes to find 21 updates.

    Computers are strange.

    W10 64 and no joy for me. Usually enabling windows firewall and windows defender would allow updates to install, but not this time.
    Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3149135) - Error 0x800f0922
    Restarts,installs, configures then fails and has to undo it all. It takes so long to get the pc up and running again.
    Tried various repairs, sfc, chkdsk, win update repair. Tried many of the Tweaking.com all in one repair. No joy.
    If I can't find a solution soon I'll try Tweaking.com in safe mode. (When I have the time)Has often fixed others pc's for me when all else fails.
    Bork indeed.

    Believe it or not, I first noticed the slowdown of the update checking over a year ago, before 10 even came out. It started slowing down just a little, say 5 extra minutes, then 10, then slowly over the past year, it has reached the point of being totally ridiculous. But it's been going on for a long time now.

    I do believe MS is not fixing it deliberately, so that users will get fed up with 7 and move to 10, yes.

    I believe that also. I've already moved, and not to Win 10. :D

    "Problems are being reported with the MS16-072/KB 3163622 patch. "Admins are saying it breaks some Group Policy settings: drives appear on domain systems that should be hidden, mapping drives don't work, and other typical GPO settings aren't getting applied.

    Although initial reports of misbehaving GPOs appeared for Windows 7 client PCs, it looks like the bug applies to Windows 7 clients, Windows 8.1, and even all versions of Windows 10 clients". http://www.infoworld.com/article/30...tches-kb-3159398-3163017-3163018-3163016.html

    After a few more attempts I managed to install the updates on Friday. I'm using O&O Shutup, so I re-enabled all the telemetry/spying features of W10 along with windows fw and defender. That may well of been the issue this time.

    I'm having problems with windows 7 updates. Having had problems with an old laptop today i got fed up and recovered it to factory settings. Tried connecting to windows updates, that was 6 hours ago, it is constantly checking for updates, my fan sounds ike a hair dryer. When i remove my tin foil hat, I hear voices saying this is a conspiracy for people who won't upgrade to windows 10.
    I already have two chromebooks in the house, third one coming soon. Now that android apps are coming to chromebooks, I may finally be able to rid myself of this disgusting OS that is called windows, hallelujah

    Well, manually downloading and installing KB3161664 worked for me as noted here: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/bork-tuesday-any-problems-yet.370217/page-95#post-2595167

    I haven't had a problem with long Win 7 updates until this last set - after hours...hours of "checking for updates" with 1 CPU pegged and 0.5 gig RAM dedicated for the task I enabled some telemetry executables that i'd just blocked instead of uninstalling for the millionth time & rebooted. The updates were all sitting there waiting when i logged in - so I'm curious as to whether WU is getting screwed up from blocking/removing telemetry updates or whether WU is just having a GUI problem - i.e. were the updates sitting there all along & just weren't being displayed until i did a reboot...

    unfortunately i didn't check here & try kb3161664

    Earth .... occasionally

    I've updated two W7 machines in the past week and both involved about 90 minutes of waiting.
    I have updates set to " Never" and all MS telemetry turned off ( including AeLookupsvc , which was
    hogging resources for around 20 minutes on every boot.)

    It's as if MS had adopted a strategy of " Take ALL of the updates we want you to have , and in the WAY we want them delivered "
    And anyone who doesn't play ball will have their time wasted.
    Of course , we'll never know for sure ...... :)

    i rebooted after about 4 - 5 hours of 'checking for updates'. But now, after the update, if i 'check for updates' it only runs for about 10min before returning with a 'no updates'

    Has anyone tried this: - Windows 7, updates set to never- google ms security bulletin june 2016 , get the technet link and download the updates manually ? It worked for me.

    It beats waiting ...

    i think i'd have to be pretty desperate before cherry picking 25 updates and downloading each one manually :)

    I'd get desperate waiting for 24 hours ... besides, I didn't have to download 25 updates.

    I have never had a problem with updates. I am using Win7 Pro and have it set to "Check for updates etc".
    This month as usual I downloaded and installed the 10 updates in a few minutes with no issues.

    FWIW, I have used Never10 to disable GWX even though I never had any pop-up reminders.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not gloating about this and am very sympathetic to those of you suffering from endless updating delays. I am very curious as to why it would affect only a proportion of W7 users.

    If I have set update as you (Check for updates but let me choose...) I have no problem either (besides CPU hogs during check up). Try disabling Windows update service and run it on demand (enable service and click on check for updates). Till this month I didn't have problem running it on demand, but latest update took forever. So I decided to temporary set is the same way you have it set and it worked OK.

    OK I see the issue. Sounds as if MS may have taken exception to users who insist on adopting 'not recommended' settings.

    I had 7 set for automatic updates and it still took forever to check. I gave up and threw in the towel after waiting 6 hours for it. Some don't seem to have the problem, so they are lucky, but others do I guess. Pretty much an unacceptable situation for some.

    I gave up and set Win 7 to check but let me decide when to download them. Well it found some but when I tried to download them it just sat there for 30 minutes and did nothing. Ubuntu is looking better and better. M$ just want a bunch of mindless sheep to do their bidding and pay them for the privilege.
