    Problems getting updates after fresh install, but not with upgrade ?

    I have installed W10 on one HD via the upgrade method and then managed to get the updates ok.
    A couple of days later I decided to create a completely new fresh install on another HD. This went in ok but when I try to get the updates for this the whole procedure just 'Hangs' and does nothing ? I have tried leaving it for a few hours but still nothing happens. I am able to browse the internet ok so the connection is fine ( as fine as it gets anyway )
    Has anyone got a solution for this ?
    The upgrade was from W7 home premium to W10 home premium.
    The fresh install was W10 home premium.

    I am posting this message from my W7 HD

    I went back to my W10 HD and tried again and lots of the stuff downloaded, I don't know why. It went so far
    then just seemed to stop half way through the Windows Defender download. I went directly into Windows Defender and went through the update routine, it faltered a couple of times and I just clicked 'try again' and it all went in. I then shutdown and restarted, went to the normal update screen in W10 and went through the normal update process and everything was ok. I now have all available updates to my fresh install. But I am not going to use W10 yet until I have a few bits ironed out, not least of which is stopping the auto download of updates.
