Hi,

Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

As I understand you are unable to find windows updates or to check for Windows updates since May on windows 7 and getting an error code: 80245001. You have tried all the steps provided online including hotfix, still you are unable to fix the issue. Am sorry to hear that you have windows updates issue since May and I appreciate your efforts towards fixing the issue.

It could occur due to any of the following reasons:

  1. Software issue

In order to understand the issue, I may need some more info:

2. Did you make any changes prior to this issue?

3. Which hotfix did you run on the computer? And what and all troubleshooting steps have you tried?

4. Have you installed any third party security software?

5. When do get the above error, while checking for updates or while installing updates?

Please provide a copy of your System Information file. Type System Information in the Search Box above the start Button and press the ENTER key (alternative is Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Information). Select File, Export and give the file a name noting where it is located. Do not place the cursor within the body of the report before exporting the file. The system creates a new System Information file each time system information is accessed. You need to allow a minute or two for the file to be fully populated before exporting a copy. Please upload the file to your OneDrive, share with everyone and post a link here. Reports in normal mode preferred. Please say if the report has been obtained in safe mode.

 

Please upload and share with everyone copies of your System and Application logs from your Event Viewer to your OneDrive and post a link here.

 

To access the System log select Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer, from the list in the left side of the window expand Windows Logs and select System. Place the cursor on System, select Action from the Menu and Save All Events as (the default evtx file type) and give the file a name. Do the same for the Applications log. Do not provide filtered files. Do not place the cursor in the list of reports before selecting Action from the menu. Do not clear logs whilst you have a continuing problem.
