Over the past couple months, and even more recently in the last few weeks, I’ve seen more and more reports from those tasked with managing Windows 7 computers that update scans are taking an extraordinarily long time. And, I do mean a long, long time. Some of those reports claim the scan has taken longer than 24 hours.
Microsoft has addressed this issue in the June 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (KB3161608).
This latest update includes a supposed fix for the long scan times, but also…
- A fix for a Windows Update error 0x8007000E on some computers while they are updating.
- Some reliability improvements
