    my windows update has been stuck like this for several day's now. i dont really know what it is i need to look for to solve this issue.

    problems its showing:
    1: the update has not progressed past 33%
    2: clicking on update history causes the settings window to freeze.
    3: clicking on advanced settings causes the settings window to freeze.

    ive looked in windows defender but it cant find any updates. and it tells me that its fine. restarting the computer also dosnt do anything.
    anyone know what might be the problem?

    Welcome to TenForums @tinbutts

    Seems that your Windows Update has stopped working properly, the current definitions update is now up to version 1.265.275.0.

    Try running the Windows Update Troubleshooter. You'll find it in Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot.
