Windows 7 stops updating

UPDATE **2017**

Fixed another one of these, here is what I did
at the run command -> services.msc
turn off windows update service
delete everything in the c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\
restart service
click windows update and wait to see what happens

I ran into this problem a few times so I will document how I fixed it

I manually downloaded the Windows6.1-KB3135445-X64 updated and Internet Explorer 11, Install IE first then the update, Rebooted the machine and click on Windows update.

It tool about 8 minutes for it to sync up but I got 245 new updates. Was going to post the link to the update but Microsoft seems to change things so just google it and make sure you are getting it from Microsoft site.
