Avg stuck in updating mode
Here’s how to fix Windows Update Remember: Windows updates are important.
No matter what troubles you’re having, we recommend keeping automatic updates turned on—it’s one of the best ways to keep yourself safe from ransomware and other threats.
You’ll need to check whether you’re running a 32-bit version of Windows or a 64-bit version and download the appropriate updates for your PC.
For 64-bit editions of Windows 7, download these updates: Double-click the “KB3020369” update to install it first.
According to Microsoft, this should have fixed your problems and Windows Update should now work normally without any long delays.
RELATED: Microsoft has also produced a “convenience rollup” for Windows 7.
The troubleshooter works through its process and then lets you know whether it could identify and fix the problem.
Most of the time, the troubleshooter can successfully remove a stuck update from the queue. Even if the troubleshooter says it couldn’t identify the problem, it’s possible that the actions of starting and stopping the service and clearing out the cache did the trick.
We’re also going to add the extra step of booting into Safe Mode first, just to make sure that Windows can really let go of that cache of Windows Update downloads. On Windows 7, restart your computer and press the “F8” key on your computer while it boots to access the boot options menu, where you’ll find a “Safe Mode” option.
If you turn automatic updates off, you are leaving yourself vulnerable to new attacks.
Windows includes a built-in troubleshooter that may be able to help fix a stuck update.
Click “Change Settings” and set it back to Automatic (or choose your desired setting).
Click “Check for Updates” to have Windows check for and install updates.
This is essentially Windows 7 Service Pack 2 in all but name.
