    Automatic Windows Updates Stuck at 1%

    I have my settings on to receive windows updates automatically. In the past three weeks I keep seeing that in the history all updates have failed to either download or install. Is there a way to fix this problem?

    windows xp, vista, 7, 8.1, 10 multiboot

    Mine stuck (actually corrupted the Update folders) because I installed an AV during a Defender update I(something new to be aware of).

    In addition to the above I uninstalled the AV, did manual updates to Defender so it was fully up-to-ate (don't need Windows Update for that). Thus I knew I wouldn't be caught again.

    Then did the what was suggested in the previous post to delete the SoftwareDistribution and Catroot2 folders (did it in safemode).

    My updates then started again properly, and going fwd as I write. Once done I will turn off Defender as it can't co-exist now (as it used to) with AV programs.. I shall then re-install the AV. Whether you want Defender or another AV, is of course your choice.
