    HP Laptop Windows 8.1 64 bit. Windows Update just "clocks"

    Unsure what happened here. Never had this kind of error before. Laptop runs fine. However, when I go into control panel and select "check for updates" it literally does nothing other than sort of freeze up...not a crash just runs real slow and it "clocks" Windows update tool never comes up. Any idea how to fix this? Everything runs fine and normal otherwise
