    The latest update which I put through 5 computers yesterday, the longest took 20 minutes.
    If its taking a long time, its either very low powered or theres an underlying problem.

    I'm still trying to figure out why you wont do the right thing and fix it ?
    The Windows 7 computers were running fine prior to the updates. It was the Updates that killed them.

    It's not fix it, it's fix them, and the problem extends well beyond my computers.

    And just to make matters worse, as fast as you fix them Microsoft send another update which undoes all what you've fixed.

    But tell me this: Why did you have to do 5 updates yesterday? Do you now need a Technician to do an update?

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    I take no responsibility for the accuracy of any media links I quote.

    It happens. 2 brand new notebooks,straight out of the box, different brands. Both reasonable spec
    Win10 updates, at the same time :One took approx 20minutes (if that), the other took 4 hours (yep) . Very strange , but the one that took 4 hours was hardly a clean OEM install (just the opposite, took ages to clean it up)

    Agreed most dont really have any major issues with win10 updates though, otherwise the workshop would be full of them, rather than the very occasional one.
    MS cant test updates on every single notebook & PC out there.

    What MS could do to help, is to just take a stand on pre-loaded crapware,adware,spyware(has happened) & trialware on new Win10 machines, and make a stand on OEM non standard partitioning (there is no need for 5 partitions with partitions in a weird order).
    Thats were MAC has the upper hand, MAC has absolute controll as to whats preloaded on their systems . No nasty surprises such as preloaded AV that just stops working after 30days .
