Windows Update wont download, just stays at 0%

Hi, past month or so my windows update won't download at all. I never had any problems till now. Im running off windows 7 64. I go to start, click on windows update and hit download. Once i do click on windows update, it just sits there with the bar running, showing me its at 0%. Please if someone might know a solution, it would help a lot.

Yeah.  I had the same problem, i was installing the update when my power went out, so i couldn't download it, but managed to get the update i needed from the microsoft webpage and it's been smooth sailing since then.
