Windows update never finishes RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my 4th day of running Windows 7.  I am not able to get Windows Update to finish.  It ran and updated initially, but now it is in a perpetual "Checking for updates..." stage.  I had recently installed Office 2007 SP2 manually.  I have gone through multiple reboots.  I have left it sitting for hours.  Right now, it has been sitting for about 2 hours.  Any ideas?

  • Fixed it, I manually started the 'Background Intelligent Transfer Service' and it detected updated within minutes.
