I will manually download & install the KB3153199 security fix on my Win7 machines to resolve the very long WU scan problem.

Worked for me.

What worked for me was mentioned here: http://www.infoworld.com/article/3058260/microsoft-windows/heres-how-to-significantly-speed-up-windows-7-scans-for-updates.html

The Windows6.1-KB3145739-xXX.msu update is what did the trick. Note the XX in the name is the arch of the OS.

Not sure but I have a passel of machines here that will fail repeatedly, some after HOURS of searching.  I applied the patch I mentioned and they all find updates in minutes.  Some might fail once during the first run after a few minutes, but all work quickly after the patch is applied.

I have to admit though, for the last dozen or so computers I've done I simply added the patch without trying updates first.  So god only knows what is really happening.
