Windows updates failing to search updates

You will find very often from many forums to check services, firewall, etc, etc. Normally this always works for me:

From command prompt stop the services (just copy it):

net stop wuauserv
net stop Cryptsvc


Delete the following folders

C:\windows\SoftwareDistribution

C:\Windows\System32\catroot2

Start the services with command prompt:

net start wuauserv
net start Cryptsvc


Restart the machine and then check for updates.
