Script fix via Manuel F. Gil


Adobe Flash appears to have helped a machine that was last updated in June 2016 (that wouldn't gather updates after 3 days of searching for them)

This corrected Bruce's that I fought with for around 30 hours...

Installing and searching for updates is slow and high CPU usage occurs in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Windows update never stops checking for updates Solved - Page 3 - Windows 7 Help Forums




I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium, and I've been encountering difficulties in Windows Updates Settings. I want to change my settings on Windows Updates so I can install important software from the Internet. But the problem is it prompts this message "SOME SETTINGS ARE MANAGED BY YOUR SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR

I can confirm this worked for me as well.

So I deleted everything here HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU except the value name (Default).

You might want to take a look in your




and see if there's anything there. You'll need to delete both, or you'll still get an error. Just leave the default in both. Hope this helps.
