    I bought this Dell computer with Windows 7 Professional already installed a couple of months ago, but am just now setting it up.


    When I try to check for updates, it just hangs. I understand this is a fairly common problem, so I tried to research solutions. I went to this page and downloaded the programs: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3200747.


    But when I tried to run the first one, KB3020369, it just is stuck on "searching for updates on this computer."


    I have tried to run the Update troubleshooter and got this error: Windows Update Error 0x80070005.


    I have no idea what to do next.


    Thanks for any help!
