Hey there.

I'm having problems with Windows Update (legitimate version of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit).
Since the 15th of January, 2014, windows has always been stuck on updating. I mean, it installs 3 updates in 3 seconds every time I shut down my computer. Every. Single. Time. Now when I started looking into this, and opened windows update, then I clicked "check for updates", and got this error: http://prntscr.com/31xt3n
Here's my update log for the last few days: http://prntscr.com/31xt90
The error code, which is seen on the first screenshot, leads to nothing. I mean, nothing.

Any help guys?

Thanks, Kevin.

Here is an answer from Microsoft:

Also, , before you shut down, open control panel/ Windows update, If it's 3 updtaes showing as ready to be installed, they can be (I believe) right clicked on & hidden so as to not update (it can also be done one at a time to see which, if any, is the problem)

I tried the windows update troubleshooting -> no help.
Tried the troubleshooter -> no help either.
The service mentioned is running and on automatic startup.
