Windows Update Stalls When Running in Windows 7/Windows Virtual PC/Win XP_ Mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    This is Bob in Tallahassee. Can anyone please help.  I installed Win7 Pro on a newly built PC and then Windows Virtual PC/Win XP Mode.  When I try running Windows Update in the XP mode window, it keeps cycling "searching for updates" and never reaches the next step, never stops cycling.  I checked msconfig and there is a process "svchost.exe" eating 99% of resources.   It is likely related to windows update. When I shut it down, my internet connection is cut off, but the Windows Update still keeps cycling. I have tried all I know, including optimizing bios for virtualization.  Is there another setting that I'm missing?    Thanks.  Bob
