    Windows Updates won't download

    Hi, I'm running Windows 8 on my Toshiba laptop. There are updates available but none will download. It stays at 0% and just doesn't change.

    Any ideas how I can get my updates working?

    Microsoft Windows 8.1 64 Bit

    Several years back, a virus disabled MS updates and virus definition updates on my XP machine. A virus removal boot disk removed the virus, but MS update still did not work. A reinstall of windows fixed the problem.
