Windows 7 cannot find updates

I have installed Windows 7 on a laptop for an upgrade to Windows 10. To do this I need to update it fully because otherwise Windows 10 searches for updates and it never seems to progress. But now the same thing seems to happen with 7. I left it checking for updates for two hours and it just wouldn't end checking. Is there anywhere I can download the update history since SP1. Internet working perfectly by the way

Cheers Bris, I will check all this out and cross my fingers.

I recently had a lot of trouble with Win7 updates appearing not to be working. In the end I let it run overnight and it did finally update.

At last, everything is good since new Windows 10 1511 upgrade. You can now do a clean install of Windows 10 and then activate using your windows 7 key. No more 8 hour Windows 7 updating.
