Question

It there a HUGE W10 update circulating

I have 4 W10 machines and one of them is stuck in startup mode (blue screen with circulating white dots). Has MS released a big update and (at least) some machines don't identify it as such, e.g. with a "Don't turn off the power. Windows is updating" or similar message?

TIA for feedback/info.

How many times do I need to learn this "trick?" <duh>
My machine was "stuck" for over and hour. I have a fairly new MB with and i5 processor and 32GB of RAM so I shouldn't be hardware limited.
Reboot fixes most problems... I just didn't want to do it in the middle of an update.

Does it have the old style HDD?

In reply to: Just rebooted and all is well

I see our new spiffy SSD machines took less than half the update time. And we have yet to go over 16GB. So everyone gets 8GB and programmers get 16.

NFM = New Fangled Machine?

I will add that someone had a long long longest update this week. The only item we could see that made it take longer was McAfee. I can't address why McAfee appears to be why it took them hours to get the Tuesday update.

can't you set it to download in background?

In reply to: Just rebooted and all is well

Or limit the amount of CPU time devoted to downloads?
