1.windows update keeps scanning for new updates but does not display
windows update keeps scanning for new updates with no results. It scans for
hours at a time and never displays anything. Is there a way to fix this
problem or get the recommended updates for windows xp my self ?
2.Windows Update keeps on scanning
When i try to update, and choose either custom or express, my computer is
being scanned. But that's all that happens. It keeps on scanning without ever
reaching a conclusion...
Any thoughts ?
3.Windows Update keeps scanning and won't load
I've been using Windows update for several years now without any problems
(Win XP Home SP2, IE 7) but when I tried to use it today, regardless of
whether I chose Automatic or Custom Updates, it just kept "scanning [my]
computer for updates" and never loaded the actual list of available updates.
I have tried this several times already, all with the same result, and have
let the page load for up to 15 minutes, whereas the process took around 30
seconds previously, so I am quite certain that there must be a fault of some
kind. I have not, however, received any error messages - the updates list
just kept loading/scanning my computer indefinitely - and so all the KB
articles were useless to me.
On a vaguely related note, is it true that there is now a Windows XP Service
Thanks in advance!
4.Microsoft Update Keeps Scanning For Updates....
...and doesn't end.
I've already gone through the re-registering of all applicable WU*.DLL
components - rebooted - and it's still not fixed.
Anybody have any ideas on how to fix this continuous scanning that never ends?
5.Windows update scans and scans
I have a laptop which won't finish scanning for updates. I have left it for
as long as 1/2 hour.
