Windows updates stuck on scanning RRS feed

  • Question

  • We been having an issue with scanning for windows 7 updates taking hours or days to run.  Now I am running into a problem with the updates never completing.  
    It just spins and 90% of the time it never completes.  From time to time I get one that fails.   I have tried the following:

    Installing SP1
    Changing DNS to
    Cleared %windir%\SoftwareDistribution folder
    Resetting IE to default
    Removing AV
    Removing Malwarebytes
    Booting system in clean state
    Removing from Domain
    Checking firewall for rules
    July 2016 Update Rollup
    Updating windows update agent
    Cleard %windir%\system32\catroot2 folder
    Cleared "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\application data\Microsoft\Network\downloader Folder
    Ran Windows Update Troubleshooter and Fixit Tool
    Ran sfc /scannow
    Ran chkdsk
