I’m having problems this month getting Windows Updates. I have 8.1 on my computer and it has worked perfectly up until now. I only take important updates and ask to be notified first rather than download automatically. It worked OK in November but this month it seems to be stuck at ‘searching for updates’. I’ve turned it off, on, and also used the Windows Update Diagnostic Tool but, so far, it’s still searching! The last notification I got that the December downloads were ready was 13th December but a few days later when I had time to take them the problem started.
I have searched some boards but most fixes refer to problems folks had with Win 7 a good while back.
Can anyone help this oldie? I don’t quite understand much of the technical stuff these days but that's an age thing, for sure!
