    Hello there,

    Please follow the below steps and restart the server and see if the helps.

    Click START and type IIS

    Expand your server


    Click on WSUSPOOL and select ADVANCED SETTINGS from the action pane on the right

    Scroll down and set PRIVATE MEMORY LIMIT to a higher limit (I doubled mine)

    Set REGULAR TIME INTERVAL to a lower limit (I set mine to about half so it automatically cycles more often)

    Click OK on the ADVANCED SETTING dialog

    Right click on WSUSPOOL and select START

    Click RESET SERVER NODE or restart the server

    Hope this resolves your Query !!

    Are you performing the proper WSUS maintenance including but not limited to running the Server Cleanup Wizard (SCW), declining superseded updates, running the SQL Indexing script, etc.?

    The reindexing script (run that first), along with declining superseded updates should help fix this issue.

    Have you tried to create a new view and like an Upgrades view or an All Except Drivers view? See Part 2 of my guide for how

    I'm guessing that one of those 2 views will help you at least get some form of an update list so that you can start the maintenance process.
