    First batch of windows updates after a clean install


    Hi, Ive just clean installed Windows 10 this morning. The first thing I did as soon as I got into Windows was to check for windows updates so as to get my system right up to date. There were quite a few windows updates, several drivers and windows defender updates etc listed. Windows started downloading everything. After about an hour or more I got a message on screen saying Windows was busy downloading other updates so was unable to install the updates that were ready and that a Restart may help. There was a Retry button immediately below the message too so I tried that first and then several updates got installed. The same message appeared on screen again several minutes later. So once again I clicked on the Retry button and more updates were then installed. Finally I got to a screen where there were just three updates left and then it said a restart was required so after a Restart that finished installing all the Windows Updates.
    My question is....What is the correct procedure when I got the message on screen saying Windows was still downloading other updates so it was unable to install the updates that were ready and that a Restart may help along with a Retry button directly underneath the message. . Do you Click on the Retry button first or go directly to Restart the PC? I wasn't sure what to do?

    Personally, I just wait out all the updates, be it Office or Win10 related, no matter how long (you can still work while this is going on) and 'Restart Now' at the end. I would only Restart /
    Retry if system is obviously frozen.

    Do you think Ive messed the Windows Updates up or I might have corrupted them? It only said a restart might help. It said that Windows was going to keep retrying. That's why I clicked on Retry button and everything immediately continued. If it was a compulsory restart surely it would have said so. My thinking was if the Retry button doesn't work then I would have gone for the Restart from the Windows Shutdown power button. Windows Update history shows all updates as successfully installed. None of them are listed as failed. Reliability History doesn't show any failed Windows Updates either. Is it looking like I'll have to start over again with another clean install of Windows 10? What do you think?

    "Windows Update history shows all updates as successfully installed. None of them are listed as failed. Is it looking like I'll have to start over again with another clean install of Windows 10?"

    If you are up to date and 'Check for updates' yields nothing further, I would not worry, at all. It's the final result that matters, not how you got there. Cheers
