    Windows Update causes computer to restart while downloading windows update 20H2 0c83ecdb-6427-4478-bf7c-8ba9c81ecb7b?upload=true.jpg


    Once I click start downloading in this screen, the update continues to set 20H2 update as getting ready only to restart my computer without downloading and return to this screen with no updates completed. Any fix to this?

    :)

    Windows Update suddenly hangs?

    Windows Update is suddenly hanging for some reason... I went and downloaded and installed the first bunch of updates, restarted when asked, and now when I go back to windows update I just get the window with a white box forever. Reboot and it still does it. This happens to be on my main machine, running windows 7.

    I've also noticed when I reboot it says configuring windows update, step 3 of 3, 47%. Maybe it somehow skipped something and is screwed forever?

    Who's downloaded the Windows 8.1 preview update?

    For some reason the installer says the update is not applicable to your computer? (Win 8 Pro x64) anyone else try this what was released today?

    Windows help & learning - Microsoft Support

    EDIT: It appears the error is because the download is named Windows8-RT-KB2849636-x64 so looks like it's only for ARM based RT Windows 8 versions even though there's nothing suggesting that on the actual download page, so where's the x86 8.1 update people?
