Windows Update Stuck at "Checking For Updates..."

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I want to get the Windows 10 free upgrade (yes, maybe I'm crazy) because, well, it's free, and I have a disposable Windows 7 installation.

Trouble is, when I go to check for updates, it just sits at "checking For Updates...". Any ideas?

Yes. You might start by reading the forums, before posting asking for ideas... :whistle:

Ahh, of course! The search function!!

Anyway, I looked at the thread you linked to, and it sounds like the solution to the infinitely long "Checking for updates..." message is contained therein.

However, since the Free Upgrade is now done with, it's sorta moot for the purposes of this thread. :/

I will, however, keep the fix in mind if I experience problems again in the future.
