Windows xp is not updating dating barbara in gta san andreas
Since last 2 weeks Windows Update is not working at all. I have tried repeatedly at different times of the day. Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) is running. Doesn't matter if I select Express or Custom, it is stuck for hours at "Checking for the latest updates for your computer".I have tried setting all services to default like Black Viper says for XP Professional SP3 and all seem to be fine.I have run all Microsoft Fix Its I could find including and also performed all manual repair steps on that page. Microsoft Security Essentials is getting updated properly but earlier I was getting updates for it via Windows Update also.Scanned for viruses, trojans and rootkits many times with many different programs.Nothing detected so far and I believe system is clean.I need Windows XP on this system so what can I try next to fix Windows Update?
It's like the MSU option that programs like Office add to Windows 7.
Selecting it starts giving you updates for MS products other than just Windows.
Had the same problem on a fresh install of Win XP Pro SP3.
This thread is what fixed it for me: Bottom line was installing this cumulative update took care of an issue that MS had created earlier that was causing the Windows Update to take forever:
Microsoft's 8 April support deadline has been and gone and the final security updates for Windows XP have now been released.
