Description

I recently had a problem with a Windows 7 Ultimate VM having issues updating, taking hours to fetch and install. This process should not take that long. These are the steps I took to resolve the slow Windows Update problem I had.

Clear the local Windows Update Cache

  • Open a command prompt as an Administrator.
  • Run the following commands to stop the windows update service and clear the update cache:
    net stop wuauserv
    net stop bits
    rd /s /q %windir%\softwaredistribution
    net start bits
    net start wuauserv
    wuauclt.exe /resetauthorization /detectnow
    

Install KB3102810

  • Download and install the KB3102810 package for your system.
  • Reboot the system and run Windows Update.
