HowTo fix Windows Update on a fresh Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 installation

A common problem on fresh Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 installations is, that the Windows Update Agent is way to old to contact Microsoft for updates. After quite a bit research and help from my twitter colleague René Bigler I found the necessary updates to fix this issue.

This is the list:

  4. KB3179573

  6. KB3125574 – Convenience Rollup Windows 7 / 2008 R2

I converted this into a PDQ Deploy Update Task for Windows x64 installations:
