Windows updater searches for updates forever. Ran the tweaking program and received the following message: Combined Problems were found with the packages files, these files need to be replaced (These mainly only effect installing Windows Updates.)
│ The SFC (System File Checker) doesn't scan and replace some of these files, so you may need to replace them manually.

- Windows Update for Win 7 & Vista recently has big problems. Update running forever is not something that can be repaired by running Windows Repair. One has to persue a "different route". This thread

https://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=46103

contains A LOT OF links regarding this problem. It can be fixed but the question remains what works on your system.

As the Pre-Scan finds problems with the Package files, post the full log of the Pre-Scan and Julian will get those for you.

I'll move this thread to the Cat and Mum File Requests section where he'll pick it up.

- To solve the "Windows Update running forever" problem, read this page:

http://wu.krelay.de/en/

Installing one Update should suffice according to the info on that page.

- But it won't solve the "*.cat" & "*.num" problem.

Before advising on fixes for the updates hanging, we need to know which version of Windows daybro is running.
