I see multiple posts about the same - very REAL problem - yet no fix that works! I have reloaded Win 7 multiple times now on a Dell Laptop and as soon as the Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 is installed, the update scan is basically broken. I know it is this update agent install that is causing the problem, because I have duplicated it each time. Is there any true fix for this? I see answers about manually installing certain updates, but these updates still scan prior to install, so problem is not solved by this. Honestly, I don't see how Microsoft can allow this to go on with a supported operating system? Windows 10 is not the solution for this particular laptop. HELP! I have already done the Command Prompt Reset, switched to wired connection from wireless, reloaded multiple times etc. There has to be a solution to this?
