    Windows gets stuck on configuring updates for 15 mins


    I have a dual boot Win 10 system, 32 bit and 64 bit. The x64 is my main OS but when updating it gets stuck at the first configuring updates screen for about 15 minutes. Its the same for the 32 bit OS but that gets stuck for about 10 minutes.

    Is there a fix? I have tried system cleanup trying to clean Update files with no effect.

    :)

    NSU Stuck at 15mins on N95 8GB V20 update

    Hi I have just tried to update my N95 8GB (vodafone uk) and it seems the software updater is stuck at 15mins remaining. It has said 15 mins to go for over 15 mins now.

    What is the best thing to do in this situation?

    I am using vista with compatability for xp service pack 2 turned on for NSU.

    HP Laptop will not sleep AFTER approx. 10 minutes of use - Windows 10

    Hi. Tried both these steps. Neither worked. Any suggestions please?

    It seems odd that it will sleep if I log-in and choose sleep within 15 mins (approx.). Anything longer and it gets stuck.

    All my systems took that long on the latest update. I just let it run and it completed OK.
