    What do I do if Updates do not complete?


    Cumulative Update KB4598242, said installing 100%. Sat there forever, then started over. Went to 22%, and now frozen there.

    Should I restart my PC. appears I cannot do anything else, like load a game while that is going on. Began at 8:20AM it is now 9:26 AM and still sitting at 22%. I have done nothing on my PC except to bring up Edge, which by the way took a long time to come up.

    :)

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond What do I do if Updates do not complete? :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
