    Windows Defender Update Stuck at 57%

    I'm on Win10 Build 10130 and have just noticed this problem for the first time. From the Updates window ( this update just sits at 57%. I can't cancel, restart or anything and there are multiple other updates that are in queue but won't begin due to this.

    Any idea how to fix it? I don't use defender but use Avast, MalwareBytes, and CCleaner.

    Hello BLToaster,

    As a test, see if stopping and starting the Windows Update service will allow them to successfully download and install after checking next. :)
