When we built Windows 7 machines lately, we found that Windows Update hangs for some of the computers. We tried a lot of different methods without success. Finally, I found a KB article which fixed the problem. Here are the step by step instructions:
- Visit this link and download the update according to your OS. Look for the download in Method 2.
- Run the downloaded update.
- Reboot your computer.
- Try the Windows Update again and you should be able to get it going now.
