    It's normal, it depends on your luck

    Microsoft Crippling Windows Updates on Windows 7

    Hang in there.

    I find the updates start only when I am away from the computer, it's like it's possessed by the Micro$h4ft demons. Please go take a shower and have your dinner while the updates are done.

    So I noticed that the update service had one core at 100% the whole time so I searched a little and found this standalone update which fixed it. After installing and rebooting, windows update found all updates in under 1 min...
    From the description it doesnt look bad, I can only hope its not Win 10 loaded .. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810

    Mind you, I waited 1-2hours without results before that fix.

    How to speed up W7 Update checks
    ____________________
    Part 1​
    3102810 sped up my upd8s search on a cloned image circa 2013; spoiler article calls for 3083710 also when doing a clean install. Installing these 1st as offline stand-alones dramatically helped cut down the time in checking for 200+ upd8s past sp1: I see 3083710 flagged in your epic: Windows7/8 - Updates to hide to prevent Windows 10 Upgrade / Disable Telemetry > what to do what to do ...
    ____________________
    Part 2 (?)​
    slow upd8 check was fixed by the above KB's, but returned again? April 19: 3138612 3145739 7 upd8s takes hours | days? Try this combination to fix it May12: 3153199 7 upd8 scans take 4ever? 3153199 may solve it

    you need to follow that thread. The updates listed in this guide are the bad ones to avoid at the time of the creation of the guide. I cannot update each clean install guide with the bad updates, hence, we have that thread as the main reference point.

    Ok. Thanks. But what about if I need to follow the steps for Task Scheduler if I just disable Task Scheduler in msconfig?

    I can tell you this much. I took no short cuts. I read the first page of the thread twice and I followed it step by step. These guys have spent hours/days on making this thread great.

    Ditto, take no risk with no shortcut if you want the cleanest possible installation.
