How to fix Windows 10 Update problems and errors.

It is unthinkable that we still have to fight Windows 10 to get our way.

How to fix your problems...

On occasion, Windows Update gets stuck or gives an error code.

In an ideal world, this wouldn't be an issue - but this isn't an ideal world, and upgrading Windows is never as straightforward as Microsoft would have you believe.

For the most part, Windows updates happen silently in the background, only installing after a prompt or when you shutdown your PC. But there are occasions when it needs a helping hand.

Perhaps it's downloaded half of the update before deciding it doesn't want to stay connected to the server. Other times, Windows 10 just fancies doing its own thing for a while, slowing your eagerly awaited update to a crawl.

Ideally, Windows Update is one of those Windows 10 components you'd never see or hear. Generally, if it isn't restarting your PC in the middle of an incredibly important piece of work, Windows Update tends to whirr away unobtrusively in the background of Windows 10, downloading updates as it when it needs to.
