  • Windows Update in Win7 now appears to be working properly

    @MrBrian notes, and @abbodi86 confirms, that the bad value <ExpiryDate> updates itself when you check for Windows updates.

    Bottom line: You don’t need to do anything. As of a few hours ago, Windows Update should work normally.

    Windows Update’s new expiry date on Win7:

    2025-07-01T00:00:00.0000000-00:00

    Which seems to me to be just as arbitrary as the old one.
