Then when you did a fresh install off your old OEM disk, you were dealing with 200+ individual updates, but at least this was satisfying to watch. Now with W10 the strategy seems to be to lump them all in one CU, hence the name. Which isn't very transparent, takes up more resources and apparently carries a greater risk for things to go amiss.

    We haven't been updating our Windows 7 recently, have we?

    W7 and W8 are now on the same update strategy as W10 - monthly rollups. Same as with W10, you will only download the parts of the update package that have changed since you last updated.

    From October 2016 onwards, Windows will release a single Monthly Rollup that addresses both security issues and reliability issues in a single update. The Monthly Rollup will be published to Windows Update (WU), WSUS, SCCM, and the Microsoft Update Catalog. Each month’s rollup will supersede the previous month’s rollup, so there will always be only one update required for your Windows PCs to get current...

    Lol.. No, we haven't. I've been on W10 for a year now and my step-son's the only one still running W7 in our household (he's a heavy Steam-er and doesn't like W10). And I'm not monitoring his pc anymore.

    That seems par for the course, mine sat for 25 minutes before the 'percent done' started its count from 0% up to 30% before the reboot. It was busy doing something, judging by the disk activity lights.

    Mine took over 20 minutes from that screen. I hate it when MS releases these useless updates for minor fixes that are freaking huge and your computer is a hostage. You can't use it until the update installs or often fails.

    Tried uninstalling, clearing out caches/temp files and re-installing a fresh new copy of FireFox?
