KB3168965 is the "magic" update this month. I turned off Windows update and downloaded this for the 64 bit computers
Installed it, rebooted, then checked for updates. It takes less than 5 minutes to find the remaining 5 to 7 updates.
It will install them in a short period of time. Reboot and after this is done, you can go back to whatever update setting you had previously.
Do not install 3035583 issued for the 14th or 20th time on July 19th.
Do not install 3173040 which is a full screen "Sorry to Interrupt" with a timer showing you that time is running out for the July 29th update.
The update lewmur linked to came out in Feb. 2016. I installed it on our four Windows 7 computers. It did not solve update problems in March, April, May, June or July. Each month a different computer has a problem.
