Guillermo Eiland- window update

Recommended Posts

I've had Windows Update freeze on me twice, once during download, once during installation.

Both times the solution was simple - press and hold down the power button to force the computer to switch off.
(Yes I know it probably says on screen not to switch off your computer - but it's stuck anyway there is nothing else you can do).

Pressed the button again to switch on the computer and the Update(s) continued as normal.

It's sometimes the MS update itself that causes hangs with certain CPUs, or video chips, or certain makes of hard drive, etc.

You see a load of moans about it online and then MS modify the update to solve the problem.
