Hi Peter

It may be one out a million. I've never seen anything like that; on the contrary, Windows 10 update is a vast improvement to that of Windows 7 (and earlier) that could go into a kind of lock up.

Our general advice, if machines or Office behaves in a non-expected way, is to make a clean install from scratch using the current Windows 10 build. Given decent (branded) and relatively new hardware, that has never failed.

Win 10 updates can now take up to ten hours. Anybody aware of a reason
why one ought not to simply disable the Windows Update serviceB
