Neighbors laptop won't update

He has a HP laptop that is running win7 and he got scared because of the Micsft hack and called me to see if the "internet is ok" lol Anyways, I asked him to look at Win uypdate and he said his last update was in August 2016. I told him to click search for updates and leave it for 24 hrs. He called after that and it is still searching for updates. Sigh. I Dwloaded Windows update Diagnostic but it does not even run on my pc. I am thinking of backing up his data and using the recovery drive that came with his Laptop. Any better suggestions?

Sounds like the update repository is corrupted.
I found a set of commands once that does the same thing as the update diagnostic tool, don't remember where but I have them saved as batch files.

This might help if Win7 hasn't been updated for a long time. Win Update was broken for 7 for a long time.

Stop the Windows Update service
Delete the contents of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution
Restart the service
