Luckily, this problem is easy to fix and will work for almost any Windows Update that is stuck.
Over the last week or so, we've heard (and personally experienced) this exact issue with Windows Update.
As of this writing, there's a series of four updates that are the culprit.
In this case, the gang of four all have names starting with KB, for Knowledge Base, and are KB2515325, KB2522422, KB2492386, and KB982018.
Windows Update can be particularly problematic for users who are still working with Windows 7Manually patching the operating system can be an exercise in futility, unless you know exactly what you’re looking for.
