    Just thought I'd chime in with another 'Thanks' to Vistaar - My x64 VM hadn't been updated since April '15, and was locked in the update check.
    Installing the KB's fixed it in short order .

    Thanks for the feedback NoelDP. Since this thread is still being consulted, I have taken this opportunity to update the list of updates in post #5. Of course KB3191203 has been a necessary addition since October 11, and there should be another addition on November 8, etc.

    There is also the matter of removing replaced updates from Dalai's outdated list. Forum member Imacri has actually been even more immersed in this issue than I have, and has posted elsewhere (Windows Vista Update Hangs at "Checking For Updates" - Page 11 - Windows Vista) that both KB3145739 and KB3168965 can now be removed. I was wondering myself two months ago why Dalai had not removed KB3168965 (windows update just seems to hang while checking.), so I have added a notation in post #5 that this update should no longer be necessary. I'm not familiar with the case for removing KB3145739 (and don't plan to reinstall Vista just to test), so perhaps Imacri might post an explanation. Of course it does no harm to manually install an update that is no longer essential to the workaround as long as any replacing update is installed afterwards, so please do install updates in order of ascending KB number, i.e. chronologically.

    Edit: See Imacri's post windows update just seems to hang while checking.
