Finally, a fix for the BROKEN Windows Update version 7.6.7600.320!

September 19, 2015

Windows Update has a bug where once the latest version is installed (7.6.7600.320) all sort of problems may develop. Basically, it is broken for a lot of users. After two weeks of trying everything I could find on the Internet, I may have finally gotten a solution.

Here is a way I found to fix it if Windows 7 ever needs to be reinstalled.

1. Do a clean installation from the DVD. Set Windows Update to the Recommended settings.

2. Reboot a couple of times

3. Install the Windows Update Patch: Windows6.1-KB3050265

4. Reboot a couple of times

5. Wait a bit then run Windows Update. It should now work. Download all of the updates and install them (or let Windows do it when you shut down).

6. If you run into issues with .Net 4.5.2, then install it manually using the file: NPD452-KB2901907-x86-x64-AIIOS-ENU

7. Roboot.

8. If Windows Update starts acting up (taking too long to check for updates), then run MicrosoftFixit50123

Doing all of these things in this order fixed Microsoft Update 7.6.7600.320 on a Dell Optiplex 740 with Windows 7 Professional.
