    Windows 10 Update Freeze


    I've just done a Win 10 install on a clean hard drive. No problems with the install, but when I try to update, it freezes on downloading x% complete. I found an update utility "SpeedyFixer", which I found searching this forum. It also hangs on trying to update Windows. This computer has only one purpose; to run a specific application. Some Windows updates are known to cause the application to fail, so it's important to me to get the latest updates (and future updates). I will be sending this computer to another person to use, so I need to get this fixed before I can send it off. What to do?

    I would like you to check the system integrity of your Windows OS installation.



    • Please type cmd.exe into Start Menu search box.
    • Please right click cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator".
    • Please type the following command and press the <Enter> key: sfc /scannow (Please note that there is a space between 'sfc" and "/scannow".)
    • It should take about 20 minutes to run, if there are no serious errors.
    • If the System File Checker reports that some errors were fixed, but some remain; please reboot your computer and run the System File Checker from an Administrator Command Prompt, again.
    • If the System File Checker again reports that some errors were fixed, but some remain, please reboot your computer and run it a third time.
    • If "Resource Integrity Violations" (errors) are reported that could not be corrected, or were not corrected after a third SFC run, then please navigate to the folder: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS and copy the file "cbs.log" to your desktop immediately. I am asking you do that because that file is dynamic, so I want to be able to examine a copy that is unchanged from the time that the System File Checker was run.
    • If there are errors that couldn't be corrected, let me know and I will provide you with instructions as to how to upload the file.





    Can you also schedule a disk check by executing Chkdsk C: /f command.


    Please go to this page and download Fix Windows Update by Ramesh Kumar and save to your Desktop.
    (Click on the hard drive icon with a downward arrow).

    • Extract it to your Desktop.
    • Then, double-click on the program and click the Fix Windows Update button.
    • Reboot your computer and see if it will work now.




    Please try below programs one at time.

    Download and run the Windows Update Troubleshooter.

    None of the above things made my Windows updating work. I have a number of downloaded updates which show as failed to install. I am considering doing a reinstall. Any further advice?

    On the off chance that it was a wireless issue, I switched to a cable connection, and the updater immediately started showing download progress; something it never did while using the wireless connectivity.

    Try disabling your anti-virus software and the firewall, if it helps afterwards re activate those

    Check to make sure "Metered connection" mode is not enabled while connected to wireless router.
