    Windows update stuck on 53%


    Hello all, I am having problems installing Windows 10 updates...... again.
    This update is dated 29.10.2015 and consists of 2 updates.
    KB 3105210 states "waiting for download" and
    KB 3106932 states "waiting for installation" It has been stuck on this for several hours and my attempts to use the repair tools have failed to resolve the problem.
    Any "non technical" help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    If it's been stuck for several hours and doesn't appear to be making any progress, I'd reboot and then do a very thorough disk clean-up with Disk Cleanup and CCleaner for both the files and the registry. Then reboot and start Update again.

    For me, a complete clean-up is:

    1. Delete the files in the Prefetch folder.
    2. Run TFC by Oldtimer
    3. Run Disk Cleanup and Administrative files
    4. Run CCleaner for both files and registry. You should repeat the actions until you get an indication that everything is clean.

    I have tried this resolution twice but sadly it has not resolved the problem. I am grateful for your time and effort. If you do have any other ideas I would be pleased to hear from you again.
    Thank you.

    Was this an upgrade install? If so, I find these to be very buggy. I would recommend performing a clean install and see what happens.

    Your windows updater is Broken
    Do you get any error code?
    Search Google and fix your Windows Updater first
    Then you will be able to install your updates

    Cheers

    No, there was no error code. Also I looked at Windows updater but this seems to relate to Win. 7. I have also tried the "trouble shooter" but still no success.
    A revision to Win 7 is starting to look tempting.

    Hello, It is an upgrade from Win 7. Updates have previously installed without problems.
    Is a clean install the same as "RECOVERY" in "Updates and Security ?
    Thanks,
