Problem of windows updates getting stuck on checking for update. I did system restoring to factory setting using recovery manager, either restore from drive "D" or USB still doesn't solve the problem. What can I do? Can I reformat drive "c" then restoring to factory setting again? Will it solve the problem ? If so, how can I format the drive "C", I can't find any where to allow me to do so. Please help!!

Try installing these updates on your system and then launch the check for updates again:
Download the right ones for your system (x64) and install, this should bring your OS up to date.
Let me know,

The problem is not solved. I click on the first link and download "Windows 8.1 Update for x64-based System (KB2919355). After finished download and I select "run", 2 hours later my screen still says Windows Update Standalone Installer "Seaching for updates on this computer". So I format the "C" drive and restore the system again, same problem. What else can I do now?

Before you try running the updates again, top the Windows Update service BEFORE installing each of these. You do that by opening a command window and entering: net stop wuauserv
Also, disconnect the network cable or disable the WiFi.
These will prevent Windows Updates from doing any online searching, and your updates should apply immediately.
I have done this myself and confirmed it works quickly.
