Windows Update Is Not Working – What Has Happened

So Windows update stops working on Windows 10 – what can you do ?

There are usually 2 main culprits.

  • The antivirus
  • You are infected with malware

I am finding lately antivirus software is interfering with Windows update and in some cases you will need to remove the antivirus software to get Windows Update to work.

Remember to use the removal tool supplied by the maker of the antivirus to remove it effectively.

I am still finding that Windows Defender is doing a better job in Winows 10 and makes for a properly running computer.

You can also get up to date in some cases by downloading manually the Windows Fall Creators Update which will get you up to date.
