    Windows update not downloading


    Hi, i have recently done a reset on my windows. but the problem is when i try to update it i cant.
    it says there is updates available without showing what they are and it shows downloading updates but nothing happens as it doesnt use bandwidth.
    is there a manual way to update windows ?
    PS: after the reset my windows is glitched like the clock is backwards (3:55 shows 55:3)

    :)

  3. Windows Update - Not downloading

    Hello,

    I am having some problems with the windows update. Basically, it is not doing anything, but it has something close to 7 downloads pending. It has been "downloading" for 4 hours and no change in the situation, at all. The ways I tried to solve this problem
    were, restarting the PC, using Windows Update Troubleshooter. None of them worked. Is there any other way tro try solving it?

    EDIT: The windows 10 is a fresh installation in my PC. I formatted the hard drive and now I'm trying to set it up

    Windows update not downloading

    I suggest you
    a. check your disk (Hard disk sentinel (trial))
    b. do an in-place upgrade repair install (which keeps all programs and data)

    hi
    i downloaded and installed the windows using the update assistant tool, it solved some of the problems but the update still is freezing on certain percentage (between 1~5% mostly), so im downloading the needed updates manually using microsoft catalog,
    hopefully it fixes my remaining problems.
    Thanks for your help, ill reply my results.

    Windows update not downloading

    I wouldn't expect there to be more than 1 or maybe two Windows updates. You can check comments for any update from the thread per update in the News section. Might need a little patience to find it.

    Good. sometimes you just have to be patient.. and try again with MS updates.

    Always useful to remember the download links are posted in the News section.
