Hi guys,

Iv noticed that my windows update gets stuck in the "searching for updates" phase. Iv tried installing updates manually from MS's site but it doesnt work. So I ran the Windows Update Diagnosis Tool and I've pasted the output and log below. I really hope you guys can help or figure somthing out as I'm at loss with what to do.

I cant seem to post the log as it's very long, I keep getting a server error everytime I try.
