    Default Win10 Update ...???

    When restarting this Win10 Pro PC, it stuck at : "Getting Windows ready Don't turn off you computer "

    It's there for more than half an hour now and still spinning .....

    Will give it another 30 min.


    One got to be very patient with Win10 updates .... and, make sure you have no important/ urgent work to be done!

    There was an updates a few weeks ago that looked like it got stuck. In the end I rebooted and downloaded the update manually, from the windows catalog site

    Turn them off! I prefer to use Linux when possible, when I open it I can get to work immediately, no updates, or AV to worry about. When I go to use Windows it spends more time preening its feathers and updating than working for me. Unfortunately I need to use some of the Windows software for my work, so I keep auto updates off except for AV.

    Funny how a few people have an issue with windows updates, 95% of the time everything happens in the background and I only know about it when I go to shutdown. I do use Linux from time to time and in Mint have to always trigger updates manually which is a much bigger pain than windows updates.

    For a few, turning off Winupdates is a good option . Even if only temporarily
    Sometimes you just cant afford to be out of action first thing in the morning , waiting an hour for updates to sort themselves out

    With Win 10 Pro it will update at whatever time you select for it to happen. Mine happens at 5:30pm when I almost never wish to use my desktop. I do not see what the problem is. Perhaps that option is not available in the home edition?
