    Windows Update

    My friend is having problems with Windows Update, namely at the moment it has taken over 20 minutes to download 84 updates and it is still saying 0kb downloaded. I tried looking in Microsoft's Download Center for a fix, but no results were found.

    Any ideas as to how to fix this would be appreciated.

    Thanks and regards, Roy

    I opened Help and Support to look for problems in Windows Update, and as a result a Microsoft Fixit was downloaded and installed, and 4 of 6 (or it may have been 5 of 7) problems were fixed. Regarding the 2 problems that were not fixed I tried to send the Fixit results to Microsoft, but after 3 failures to send them I gave up. One of the successful fixes was regarding Windows Update Store.

    After the fixit process I went back to Windows Update which then showed that updates were never installed. presumably due to the fix of Windows Update Store. Also I had to reinstall Microsoft Update.

    I am now searching for updates again, but I am not hopeful of a successful outcome.

    I will report further when Windows Update completes.

    Do you get an error code with the failures and is there anything in Event Viewer to supplement ?
