While the system is updating

Most often, these types of problems are due to a software conflict or a preexisting issue that simply wasn't brought to light until the Windows updates started installing.

Much more rarely are they caused by a mistake on Microsoft's part regarding the update itself, but it does happen.

That feature does not, however, seem to conflict with conventional third party AV software.

I found in Windows/system32/drivers; it bears today's date.

By commenting, you are accepting the DISQUS terms of service.

Scenario: Dell XPS 8700, Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, fully updated. After backing up all data and imaging the system, etc., I went to the Dell support site. EDIT - this situation is still unchangd 12 hours later. According to the Dell support page instructions, those files are specifically designed to operate in a Windows/DOS environment. Should I suppose that all those drivers did not install yesterday because they were already installed?

While we might check and install updates manually from time to time, most Windows 10 computers are configured to apply important updates automatically, while older versions like Windows 7 and Windows 8 usually apply these fixes the night of Patch Tuesday.MB is a little different, not exactly a true AV program, and is supposed not to interfere with any of the well-known AV suites (or with Windows Defender for that matter).It is supposed to deal with some kinds of threats that lie outside the scope of standard AV programs.As I understand it, Windows Defender is now so improved that a third party AV program (such as Avast) is superfluous (and therefore an unnecessary expense, apart from other considerations) and I am planning to make that change shortly.I'll have to find other ways of handling a couple of the accessory functions (password manager for example) but that's OK.

This went ahead in what seemed a normal way until it got to "Flashing ME now, please wait..." That proceeded fairly quickly to 99% - and it has been stuck there now for at least an hour and a half. Have to do a bit of cleanup and backup there, although that laptop holds very few data files not also present on the desktop.
