    I have it installed on my Win 7 without any adverse effects that I know of, but I don't use any Bluetooth devices which it breaks.

    If you use Bluetooth then the general advice is not to install it.

    There is a download link for xxxxxx605 in the Sticky Post, "How to fix Windows Update Slow...." When I tried to install it the message that popped up was to first install the other program. I installed both and it fixed my problem with downloads that never download (0%) and the length of time to find updates.

    Can you post your solution with links to what you used in http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...-STOPPING-quot and perhaps that may also resolve for Craig.

    Windows 7 Update solution

    The first sticky post at the Windows 7 forum is titled " Windows 7 Update solution", and comes from JoeP517, Administrator. He refers to a another post, "Windows 7 Update solution". I followed the instructions exactly, and my updating problems disappeared. The solution comes from Microsoft and is a very recent fix. JoeP517's post got numerous replies, among which was a further solution, "Solve Windows Update problem (High CPU & memory usage)", with a link.

    Hope this helps.

    I was hoping you would have put this reply into the thread I'd linked, but thanks for the clarification.

    Sorry, but at this point, because I had to go through several links and numerous postings and then get back to the forum, I really lost track of where I started and which posting I was answering. I hope that everyone who needs this solution can find it.
